Dustin Pike Challenge


Those of you who visit my blog know that my oldest son Jim lives in a group home and loves all kinds of arts and crafts. He is very artistic and creative and has his own style in which he makes many creations for me and for family and friends. He loves glitter - loves it! I have to keep my Sickles supply filled for when he comes to visit and works on his projects. He also loves bright colors - the brighter the better - red, yellow, orange and purple are some of his favorites. He loves coloring with markers and is a detail person as his mother is. I keep a box of markers here for him to use when he comes to visit and he also 'borrows' mine. :<)

This Halloween he asked for a "Spooky" card - one with scary Halloween characters. And because he loves the posters I make, I thought I would make him a small poster card using a 81/2 x 11 CS as the base. I recently landed on Dustin Pike's blog and fell in love with his whimsical style of art and knew that his Halloween characters were perfect for Jim's card as I could color them with all of the bright colors Jim loves! Dustin has a "All Things Shiny" challenge currently on his blog so I also used the card as my entry as I used LOTS of sparkly for Jim!

I gave the card to Jim yesterday and he loves it - I hope that you also enjoy. Drop over to Dustin's blog to see all of his wonderful art work and great card samples! He is most generous with his freebies images and I have taken advantage of this gift! Thank you Dustin!
