All About Boys

Well, this is only the second time I've entered the TOTALLY GORJUSS challenge since I got kicked off the Design Team for bad behaviour earlier this year (only kidding, honest, I stepped down voluntarily) and I thought it was about time I annoyed the Gorjussettes and had a go.

The theme of the challenge this week is ALL ABOUT BOYS - here's my card


 Image is a Nellen Snellen called Celebrate - I'm not sure if the cat is trying to steal his present or flick his ear!  Aaargh, forgotten the papers - Fine & Dandy I think but can't remember who by but I've used them a lot for boy cards.  Sentiment is an LOTV calendar stamp and the stars are silver peel offs that I coloured with a black ProMarker, stuck on the paper and then cut out.

Not sure if there are enough circles on the card to qualify for this week's CUTE CARD THURSDAY Going Round In Circles challenge but I'll enter anyway, they can always disqualify me if needs be!

And CUPCAKE CRAFT CHALLENGE are asking us to Wish Upon a Star so I hope two stars are enough.

Wish I'd done his parcel and ribbon different colours now but hindsight is a wonderful thing!

Is it just me or is it very quiet in Blogland at the moment?  Feel like I've been talking to myself for the past couple of weeks and it's not even school holidays yet.

Hugs Sxx

First of all.. you never fail to make me chuckle!! Waterlogged tail, heehee - what an image!! The weather is looking okay..ish here today, but you know how things can change at the drop of a hat!!

LOVE this card. Those patterned papers are PERFECT for boy cards, right?! Me thinks.. the cat is attempting to flick his ear.. because that would be more amusing than stealing his present!

Oh, and yeah.. blogland is VERY quiet - I've been wondering wth is going on?!

Hope all's well, and you manage to dry your tail out!!

xo, Lou.

This card is absolutely STUNNING! The colours are perfect, the design is perfect, the image is perfect, to sum it all up, it's A PERFECT CARD! :) I love everything about it, it's so cool! Such a great card for a boy. Your colouring with Distress Inks is gorgeous! I'm a Distress Ink-girl myself, and I LOVED reading your colouring tutorial! Do you mind if I make a link to you from the Distress Ink-tab on my blog?

hugs,
Hanna

Hi Squirrel, great boy card. Great DP and the image is a lot of fun. Don't know about anyone else but I seem to be having bother getting round my favourite blogs. Time just seems to disappear! Scottish girls might be a bit busy, our schools have been on holiday for 2 weeks already.

Miss your lovely cards on the DT at TG so it's nice to see you joining in with our challenge this week.
