Boys and their toys...........

The good news is it's nearly the end of the week - and for me, it's nanny and grandad's turn this weekend to have my son, so I've got a whole weekend of crafting uninterrupted - whoop, whoop!! The bad news is that the weather (here in London at least!), is absolutely dreadful!! We've had so much rain today, I started to wonder if it'd ever stop!
Anyways, I originally made this card for Sweet Sketch Wednesday (followed their sketch) and LOTV's Anything Goes challenge but with one thing and another, I didn't get to post it until both those deadlines had gone but I've been catching up in blogland and discovered that it fitted into Colour Create's challenge perfectly, so here it is:
Image - Lili of the Valley watercoloured with Distress Inks.
Papers - My Mind's Eye Lost and Found.
Embellishments - Buttons and Felt Ribbon both MME Lost and Found.
Other - Border die cut with Nellie's Multi-Frame Border.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
OK - that's all from me for tonight, I'm off to settle down at the crafting table and to watch some TV. Enjoy the rest of your evenings...........xx


  1. Oh I love it Marie! The image is lovely and the embellishments are perfect!

  2. Lovely card Marie - great image and love the colours. I know what it's like to have child free weekends, as much as you miss them, the time on your own is just fab! Hugs, Claire x

  3. Oh Marie this is so cute sweetie..! great image hun and fab colour combo too..and I haven't bought the new release yet....haven't had time...boohoo..!

  4. Fabulous card Marie. This little lad is so cute and the papers are perfect for him.

    Nick Bantock inks are just like DI's (even made by Ranger too) either as felt pads or re-inkers, they work the same way as DI's just give me some extra colours.

    Enjoy your child free weekend, does you good to have a little 'me' time.

    Hugs Elaine xx
