Boys's games

Hello and welcome to a new fresh day. I hope that you are off to a good start of your day and look forward to what the day has to bring. It's getting really dark here in Sweden by now and the weather doesn't make it any lighter that's for sure. Wonder how this day will turn out? It's hard to get good pictures when the rain is poring down like crazy every single day. I do like it in away, it's very relaxing, but the darkness... And now it's only a week and a half before we turn the clock back an hour. Then it will be even darker, Winter's half of the year will be hear by then.

My Midweek card then. I have used an old Paper Shelter image called Little Cowboy and with a whole bunch of little lads in our family, and all of their friends this is a favourite to turn to when it comes to making birthday cards. The boys are always playing war or cowboys, or knights so a perfect digi for the card.  He is fun to colour and as most of the time he is coloured with my Letraset family. The browns on his trousers wouldn't blend properly for some reason, but I decided that he wears suede, they did that in the Wild West, right? Then the shadowing can be a bit "crazy". LoL

My little guy is paired up with the most wonderful autumn papers from Maja Design. They are just to die for. The colours in this pad is just magical. I was not that impressed by their design a year ago, but when their two latest summer papers was released I fell totally for them and they are one of my favourite ones by now. Really good quality as well, I like that. Wonder where you can buy that kind of paper to print of my own digital ones? LoL

The card is made for one of W's friends that will celebrate his birthday on Saturday and boys are not that much into flowers and stuff (I'm guessing). I kept the design very simple using a sketch from Charisma Cardz Challenges. Love this design! And only used a charm, a web ribbon, some card craft candy and some string that I made into a lasso. Have used some leftovers inside the card to make a pocket for a gift certificate, some string and some more stars to pick up from the front of the card. Only the writing left now. Hate that part as I always feel like I am messing the card up then. LoL

We have a new challenge up on the Paper Shelter blog today and our theme is Charming! (Use a charm). I hope you will come and join our fun. If you play using a TPS image you have the chance of winning a gift certificate worth $30. If you play with us using a different brand of image you have the chance to win three digis of your choice. Pretty good that too.

With this I leave for today, hope to see you back soon and thanks for all the encouraging comments that is left on my blog. You all are one of the reason I have not given up during a very hard time of my life. You all mean the world to me. You are the best!

Love n hugs

Hi Marie, wow, this is gorgeous! I love the texture that his whole outfit has got. It may not be the way you envisioned it to be but it's perfect! Wonderful wonderful boy card!
It's really very wet here too - I hate it cos it makes me ache more! The dark is so depressing too, so happy that I can make my 'stuff' as it distracts me from all that stuff! hugs Karen x

Vilken mysig stämpel och snyggt kort. Så läcker med lassot. Det är alltid lite trix att få till dessa pojkkort tycker jag men du har verkligen lyckats-
Ha det bra <3
