A new talent ...

My 7 year old son made this for my MIL's birthday last week. He coloured the image beautifully, chose the paper and the ribbon. All I had to do is assemble it. He also wrote on the front in a
co ordinating pen colour. The flutterby is hand punched and he added gems to the middle of it.
I think he did really well with it. He's always pinching images and colouring them in. Well done Flynn ! I am biased though LOL.

I thought I'd enter this for the Papertake weekly challenge where anything goes this week.
Everything is from my stash. The paper is K & Co K Bailey, the card is from my bit box, the flowers are Bazill Bitties, Kaisercraft and from my stash. The ribbon I bought at Christmas but it looks great with this paper. The pearls are from my stash.

Cheers for popping in and I hope to see you again soon.

One for the men in our lives ...

and for 3 challenges. With DS being off on half term I get less sleep but more craft time, so I thought I'd kill 2 birds with one stone as they say. I need to make more cards for the shop and enter some challenges while I'm at it.

So onto the challenges. 1. Charisma Cardz - For the boys/men. 2. Simon Says - Male/ Father's day and 3. Sketch Saturday - Pop over to their blog and take a look at this weeks great sketch.

The image is by the wonderful Mo Manning, coloured with pencils and Sansador. The card is the back of an A4 pad and SU which I distressed. The paper, twine and paper clips are from my stash. Paper clips because I couldn't find my eyelet tub. I really need to sort my craft room out. Anyway back to business. The sentiments are La Pashe and from a clear stamp set I've had for eternity.

Ta for taking a look at my tiny piece of the tinternet. Wave as you pass or pop in anytime.
