Lazy summer days ....

Hi folks, I hope you are all doing fine. Things are good in our household, kiddies getting into the swing of the summer hols although I would like better weather so we could at least get down the beach more than once this summer (not holding my breath though!!!). I've been snatching some crafting time when I can but all routine has well and truly gone out the window. 

I have however managed to make a card I was asked to do for a male birthday.  Now I don't do mens cards that often and I so struggle with embellishments but when I saw this stamp by Elisabeth Bell I knew I had to have it.  Its a real pleasure to colour and its a really good size so really you don't need many embellies as the image is the main focal point.


Papers are from an old paper pad by Making Memories which I thought it was probably about time I used

A bit of a closer look.  I've coloured the image with Promarkers but the hair was done using Copics.  Ribbon and buttons are from stash.

Challenges I would like to enter:-

Okay about time I went to bed me thinks its gone 1 a.m. and I keep making mistakes whilst typing my post.  So I'm going to luv ya and leave ya guys. 

Take care and happy crafting.
