One For The Boys (LLF)

My hair is possessed.  Seriously!  We left the house this morning with me looking all neat and tidy with a nice shine, and after ten minutes on the North Norfolk coast I looked like I'd been in a tumble drier on the hot cycle for an hour.  There I was thinking people were just being really friendly and smiley but, in retrospect, they were probably tiddling themselves laughing at the fluffy apparition!  Never mind, it stayed dry for us and we had a super day.  We even managed to sneak in an hour at Sheringham so Toad could see the steam train and I had the most amazing hot chocolate, complete with cream and a Flake.  Whoo!

Anyhoo, this week's challenge from Lili's Little Fairies is One For The Boys, and being a perverse Squirrel, I love boys cards.  I had been itching to use this stamp so it has been a happy day all round.

Can I just say that if all you are seeing are blank squares instead of pictures, if you right click on the square and then open the image in a new tab, you should be able to see the picture.  This seems to be an issue with Google Chrome at the moment and I can't figure it out, but I am seeing blank squares all over blogland!

Ingredients for this card are:
Stamped Image:  Lili Of The Valley - Tree House
Medium:  Distress Inks (ReInkers and Markers)
Papers:  First Editions - Boho Chic
Sentiments: Lili Of The Valley - Mixed Circular Sentiments
and Sentiment Tags

Hugs, Sxx

You know squirrels are having a good time when their tails are crackly and rather zapped-by-lightning - they're full of energy and spirit, that's what fluffs their tails! Zing! LOL

Charming boy card today... and I see that "Distress Markers" in your recipe today. I have no doubt you'll master the challenge eventually. =) Enjoy all the practice on your holiday!

Mwah, Beanie

Rufus said...

Well no wonder you've been dying to ink this one up! I didn't know that Squirrel's ever had bad hair days!? Figured that your tail was always sleek, shinny and with just the right amount of fluff! Glad you had such a super day.

Jackie said...

Fabulous card Squirrel. I am sure they wouldn't be laughing at you...would they? :o)

What a fun, fun image! I broke down and ordered some more LOTV stamps during their jubilee special. I got several sheets of sentiments because I really was feeling left out without those. The few image stamps I got were pirate ones, but I was very tempted by this one. Some day!

Lorraine said...

Gorgeous card Squirrel - I love doing 'boys' cards too! These stamps are just fab!
Love the layout and the wood effect paper too!

Faith A said...

I love making boys and mens cards too, perhaps because I have 4 brothers and a few nephews LOL.

I would love to produce a card like this, love it all, as I have said before no need to say anything about your fab colouring :)

Zippy said...
