For the Boys


Hello and welcome to a new week and a new challenge at


where it's All About the Boys.

Our sponsor is a new one to us and this is what I did using on of their images.


Isn't he cute!!?? He was coloured with Promarkers and simply matted on grey and popped on a spotty background. The sentiment is an old Craftwork Cards stamp and the heart was die cut with a freebie that came with my Gemini. Hope you will come and play!!

I know it was over a week ago that we had snow here but the big kid in me just wanted to share some snaps with you!!

Walking down our lane...


walking back up the lane after our snowy walk...



A snow laden hedge...


...and a weird looking frozen puddle that would not break no matter how many times I jumped on it!!


It has done nothing but rain ever since so I seem to be drying wet Sprollies on a regular basis!!

Right, that's my catch up done!! I have had a busy weekend crafting so will be seeing you again later in the week. Until then...take care xx

I think we are all big kids when it come to snow Sarah, sadly we've had but a smidgen this year, not even a snowball's worth.

Tahat little one on your card is such fun with those huuuuge glasses and just makes you smile.

Hi Sarah, a great card for a lad, love the colours and layout. The puddle looks interesting, be careful jumping on them, I can just imagine slipping and ending up somewhere less than comfortable... have a wonderful week.. Megan

That is very cute lil guy just perfect for a fun card for a little guy. I know it would be perfect for my little nephew :-). Lovely pics of the snow. So glad it's not that cold here on my neck of the woods. Love looking at snowy pics, just don't like the cold that comes with it, so pics are perfect for me :-)
Have an awesome day!
