Release of Anki's Sweethearts #2

Want this badge?"

Well - I am so happy - because today the new Anki's Sweethearts #2 is available over at SCACD. It's so nice to finally share with you the illustrations that now has gone from my sketch book - to the etcher - to Susana's store and then---hopefully into your crafty hands. I know that you ladies out there are sooo talented and I can't wait to see what you all will create with them.

Today I want to show you Isac the soccerplayer. Those of you who know me knows that I just adore our cute little son Isac. He is supersweet, funny, clever and picks up and remember everything. I would say that people that does not know his age - they would think that he is older than he actually is (he turns 3 in July).

I had no clue then that he would totally fall in love with his soccer outfit (that we purchased for him for the European Championship 2008). He loves the Swedish players - especially Zlatan and Henke. He knew the lyrics to a Swedish song about Zlatan already when he was only a little over 1 year old. See the video for the song performed by Elias here.When he sees a Swedish flag - he calls it the Zlatan flag...hihi......

So the other night when Sweden was playing vs Denmark - he insisted to have the soccer outfit on while he was watching the game with us. Here's a picture of him - just before the game.

So as you can understand - this cute little guy is the one inspiring me to all the Isac images - but also then to Isac the soccerplayer. He also insists to wear the outfit to the daycare center - even if it would be in the middle of the winter ;-))

Over to the project then. I've made so many things for other people - so I wanted to make something for Isac. Therefore I decided to make this little doorsign for his room.

I coloured him with my copics, coloured the chipboard letters with Distress ink and added the Susanament from set no 2. DP from stash. I do wish that Isac will believe that he can chase his dreams and make them come true even when he is turning 15 or so. That self confidence that we have as kids - I wish that he can keep that and continue to trust in himself and believe that everything is possible.

Well - hope you all have liked what you've seen so far.
Wish you all a wonderful weekend and hope to see you play with these new images.

Kramis - Anki
