A Card For A Boy...........

Hello everyone how are you all? Did all you yummy mummies out there in the UK have a fabby mothers days yesterday? I had a super duper one, was told I was not allowed to do anything all day..........not even allowed to make a cup of tea, it was brilliant lol.

Anyway have you read my title, yes you are on the right blog I have made a boy's card. Well actually I made this over 2 weeks ago & then never had the time to take a pic or then put on my blog lol, so finally he is being shown.........
I finally inked up one of my LOTV boy stamps, I love LOTV male stamps but I am guilty of neglecting them :0(

I've added 'Jute' fabric across the middle. I used a Doo-Hickey die for the cloud & the smaller cloud I got off the gorgeous Krista...........the idea is to put a die-cut number onto the front when it goes to the recipient, depending on his age.

The stamp is called 'By The River' & I coloured him with copics AND I even wrote the list down & placed it inside the card so I wouldnt lose it..........should remember do this at all times lol.
E13, E21, E00, E000, E0000
E57, E55, E53, E50
B97, B95, B93
C2, C1, C00
G99, G94, YG97, YG93
B00, B000, B0000 & white gel pen added to bits for the water & the log I forgot to write down lol.
I have used the lush MME 'Paris & Co' papers, love this pad as its fab for male or female which is just cool!!!!!!! I inked all the edges with Walnut DI & matted onto dark brown card.
Button in the top corner is from my stash & you gotta love those screw brads..........I've had them ages & always forget about them. I have kept the card simple as its for a boy & boys are tough & dont like foofiness lol ;0)

I thought I would show you this photo take on my phone last weekend when we went Ben & Megans for tea. Payton absolutely loves her big MAHOOSIVE rabbit 'Thumper'..........would you believe he is actually just a baby........look at the size of him!!!!! (Though this pic does not show his size well, he's actually nearly as big as Charlie). The dog of course you may recognise from my photo's from a couple of years ago.........maybe a bit less lol. That is Charlie who was our yorkie but he was always more for Ben so when Ben & Megan got their own little nest he went with them. He's just awesome & the most fabulous dog & we miss him but thankfully we see him most days, either if we go down or sometimes he will come up with them like yesterday............so its cool cus I still get to give him snuggles ;0)

Well I'm gonna come around & see you all now not been on the internet this weekend but I will catch up todayw ith you all.
Thank you soooooooooo much for stopping by, loves yous all mmwah xxxxxxxxxx

Fabulous card and no foofies! LOL! It is perfect for a 'guy'. Your granddaughter is delightful.

Shelby said...

Awesome work on the masculine card! Turned out perfectly. Your granddaughter is growing so fast and is so beautiful. I think all I could notice in your post beside your granddaughter was that there is green grass! We still have snow and what little grass is peeking out is just varying shades of brown.
