Boy Oh Boy!


Good afternoon everyone this is an extra card I made from the one of the sponsors images at Sassy Cheryls - Nature Boy for the Aud Sentiments Blog hop and DT call post.
He has been coloured with watercolours and mounted on blue card which has been distressed round the edges. The papers are from Summer Driggs - Freedom Ain't free and Sweet Cakes - I love her papers especially for boys cards. The buttons are from my stash and I have threaded blue fibre through them. The sentiment is from a Lili of the Valley set called Boy oh Boy!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:-

Cooking It Up With Katie - 1 image, 2 papers and 3 embellishments,

Simons Says Challenge - Card for a child,

Your Next Stamp - Texture,

Bunny Zoes Challenge - One for the boys,

A Spoon Full of Sugar - All creatures great and small,

Totally Stampalicious - Anything Goes,

Paper Sundaes - Childhood Memories,

Sketch Saturdays - I used their sketch, and,

Have a great day and please let me know you have visited.

Hugs

Hi Ali,

Sorry it's been so long since I last popped over but with 4 teams and life I rarely get the time to catch up with old friends. Thanks for the heads up on my top three, I had no idea, lol

Was it the stitch stamps you were after.

I have done a quick search and they can be found here http://www.belscrafts.co.uk/Stamps.htm scroll about 2/3 of the way down, Item Number HOTP 1000 £11.99.

A set went on ebay for about £5 including the postage just a week ago, so it might be worth hanging on if you aren't desperate to see if you could get a bargain.

After all that....... great card! LOL Love the little lad, such a typical boy. Reminds me of the two horrors next door when they put frogs in my watering can and then stood back waiting for me to scream.

Buttons are my favorite embellishment, love to see three of them in a row. Would you believe my husband can't touch a button if it isn't attached to clothes (aren't we a pair!)
thanks for playing with us at Cooking It UP with Katie.
