Good Friday to ya! It's been HOT HOT HOT~ I'm sure you all know this early in June we aren't usually this hot. Maybe global warming is speeding up? School is almost out! This district takes it's sweet little time setting us parents free from homework!!! hehe (bet you thought all kids do it without help huh? I wish!)
It's another challenge today at Wags N' Whiskers this time hosted by the talented Carolina. The object is to make a card themed "One for the Boys" so use those images of fishing, hunting, sports or just cute boy DP, you get the idea! The sponsor is Wags N' Whiskers and you can win up to 2 of their images depending on whether you use one of their images. If you stop by you can see great inspiration from the other DT's as well as a fun challenge! I would love to see your creations!
I truly struggle with cards for boys, I think because you have to design without the "pretty" stuff. No flowers, ribbons, bows, lace etc. I always end up with primary colors too! Pastels just don't seem right. This card was made with the Wags N' Whiskers image called "Slam Dunk, part of the "Let's Play" collection. He'll be a great collection to my inventory in the craft sale at the end of June.
