Sailing along

Hello all, and what a lovely sunny day it is here in the East Midlands. It's Friday again and another weekend already - somewhere this week I've lost a couple of days and if anyone finds them please send them back so I can catch up with all the things I'd intended doing!!

There are a few male challenges around at the moment but instead of getting my Dad's fathers day card made I decided to do a boys birthday using one of my pile of LOTV toppers. I must admit that as a square I didn't like this image too much but when I cut it into a circle it's changed it completely and I think the little boy looks so sweet playing with his homemade boat. I used some snippets of spotty paper and the ribbon and peel-off sentiments are from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges ~
Lili of the Valley Monthly challenge 'male or sporty'
Allsorts challenge 'for the guys'
The Ribbon Girl challenge 'numbers'
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets' (2nd entry)
Papertake Weekly challenge 'anything goes + option summer' (2nd entry)
Simon Says Wednesday challenge 'father's day / masculine'
CRAFT challenge 'father's day / male'
Creative Card Crew challenge 'nautical'
A Little Bit Crafty challenge 'child's play'
Bearly Mine challenge 'one for the boys'
Country View challenge 'only men allowed'

 Thanks for popping by and I hope you all have a great weekend

Lovely card Andrea - just perfect for a little boy. I do so agree too about die cutting LOTV images - it really can transform them for sure. Thankfully they often have enough white space round the image to sit with a pile of dies and decide the best one to use. The circle is perfect for the little chap with his boat :)

Hugs, Di xx

That image is just precious. I was making a boat with my 9 year old grandson today and he was so fascinated by it. You really made me think about how special that moment was.

Gorgeous card.
