Have you heard the weather forecast for the weekend over here in the UK its going to be sunny and very warm, well about time is all I can say, I have had enough of this long old winter, and as I suffer from SAD the sun can not come quick enough.
My card for todays A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge is very apt for the sunny weekend, I am not sure if in these days of PCs, X Boxs and all other computer games, that little boys make their own boats and watch them float in a puddle or down the river, my brother and I had hours of fun during the summer doing this and playing Pooh Sticks, we also spent hours collection Frog Spawn and catching Sticklebacks, not sure Mum enjoyed finding them in the sink though.
Down to this weeks Challenge then we would like to see Ton's of Texture At least two different types of texture on your card, what a great challenge and we are sponsored by Pixie Cottage Stamps.
I dread having to make a boys card, its not the image I dislike its the fact that I am never sure how to embellish them’ but I quite like this one, “By The River” has always been one of my Favourite Lili of the Valley Boy Stamps, I just want to pinch his little cheeks. I have used Copics and Polychromos Pencils to colour the image. The Ticket, Grunge Word and Background stamp behind the image are all from the new Lili of the Valley Additions range which will be on sale at Ally Pally this coming weekend and on the website from 19th April. I have stamped all this accessories with Forest Moss Distress Ink. The Raffia is from B&Q and Bakers Twine from the Ribbon Girl. The gorgeous Mother of Pearl Buttons are from the Craft Fairy.
