Still Hoppin' with the Peachy Keen Mini Release and Country Bumpkins!

Good morning!!! Well, it's Wednesday, we're halfway through the week, and still celebrating and hopping for the new Peachy Keen Stamps mini release/Country Bumpkin Stamps release. Today I have another cute little Max card to share with you.I kept things pretty plain and simple with this card, and I just love doing that once in a while. Would you believe that "simple" is very, very, difficult for me? It always seems like I keep looking for something else to do, or add, but that's not the case with this one. I colored Max with red hair this time, because I really like playing with the different color combos for hair, and it just gives each one you try a whole different look. I've found that nearly anyone can color this little guy up and say that he looks just like their son, or grandson, or nephew. LOL!! There's a lot of truth to that, too. Depending on what colors you use, you can make him look like just about any little adorable fella you know.

As is usually the case, I colored this Max with Copics, and boy, was it EVER a difficult thing to make his little face dirty with some distress ink!!!! I kept thinking I was going to mess it up and have to start all over. I think I managed to get him plenty dirty without overdoing it this time, and I love the way he turned out.
