My Ordinary Super Hero

Mom could tell this story better than I can but I have to give the story behind this card. I think it was last year sometime Mom asked Ian what he wants to be when he grows up and he told her that he wants to be an "ordinary super hero". He also loves the Incredibles movie so when I saw these stamps from Pink Cat Studio I knew I had to have them :)

So here is my Ordinary Super Hero (I took this 2 days ago when he was playing soccer with Joe) and here is a card I made that was inspired by him.

The colors for the card were inspired from the movie The Incredibles. I used Only Orange, Real Red, Yoyo Yellow and Basic Black. The super hero's side kick (the dog) was stamped on a scrap piece of white, cut out and pop-dotted. I colored them with my SU markers (I have been using my Copics I just haven't had a chance to make a card with the pieces I have colored.......yet).

I'm not sure if you can tell but I sponged around the orange and yellow pieces with only orange.

Hi Karen,
Actually the story goes like this: It was Amy who asked Ian what he wanted to be when he grew up and he said a 'Super Hero'. She then said, "What kind of Super Hero" and Ian replied, "The ordinary kind". He is my Super Hero too! and I'll get to see him real soon! Love the card Karen...and as Pam says,"You rock!".

Actually the story goes like this (lol):
I asked Ian what he wanted to be when he grew up and he said a super hero...so I asked him what kind of a super hero and his response was...just an ordinary super hero!
Hehehe...you know how us Ross' have to get the story right! Joe, I'm sure, can relate to this! ;o)
Can't wait to see you all in a few days...
Amy

I think your all liars!!! No one knows which one of you is telling the truth...poor Joe, he is probably confused most of the time!!! lol
I love how kids think...and they truly do say the cutest things.
