Boy oh boy...

Evenin' all....
I do hope you are all having a wonderful week so far! 
The weather has been positively glorious here today... hope everyone else is having some sunshine too!?

its my turn to share some inspiration over on the Simply Sassy blog today, and I thought we'd have something different....

a BOY'S card..

 I've used No 1 fan
just look at his cheeky little face!! I LOVE him!!

Did you know he can come and live with you for just £4.29!!! 
then you can pinch his little cheeks as much as you like!!

I've coloured him with promarkers and pencils
The papers are all MME, mostly from the same pad, which is unlike me!
The happy birthday sentiment is from a cuddly buddly set, which the lovely Jane bought me
 (Thanks Jane!!... yep she is too generous!!)
and the alphabet stickers are crate paper from the orbit collection...


The arrow and the bracket are from the greeting farm spotlight kit... LOL!!! you are so sick of me saying that arent you!!??? 
I sat this card on my desk last night, and I couldn't help feeling there was just a little bit of something missing....
SO I just cut the little tabs at the top and bottom, and it really made a difference!!
other than a bit of doodling, and the enamel accents... thats about it...

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges...
A spoonful of sugar - Happy Birthday
Cards for men - Anything goes
Stamps r us - Anything goes
Sprakles forum - For the boys

Thanks for visiting!

This is just the cutest! You've coloured the little guy perfectly and I like how your papers and embellies are there but he's still the focal point of your card.
Thanks for joining us at Stamps R Us and hope to see you again.
