The Pixie Cottage - Blue For A Boy

Hi All,
This post has been scheduled because I will be with Louise, who came home from her Jordan trek on Monday - updates and photos to come.

This week at The Pixie Cottage, our challenge theme is Blue for a Boy with this sketch - remember you can do either or both.

Isn't this a great sketch :0)

For my card this week, I followed both the theme and the sketch using this gorgeous stamp called Love A Lot Lion - he's so cute and an absolute joy to colour. You can find him here at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More shop. I put the sketch onto a square card, but you could quite easily make this a circular one. I cut all my circles on the Cricut and popped the image and message onto foam squares to give them some dimension.

This card will be going to friends of Louise's who had a little boy last week while she was away. I hope they like it!!

The inside, decorated to match.

Medium - Promarkers
Gingham paper - stash
Clouds - Pink Petticoat
Brads and bow - stash
Sentiment - very old Hero Arts stamp

That's all from me for today except to say, I hope you play along with this great challenge. The randomly picked winner will win two stamps of their choice from the Pixie Cottage Collection. Oh...and don't forget to take a look at the rest of the DT's creations. They are fantastic!!
