Make it manly!

Hello and welcome to my little corner of the world again! I hope you're doing fine and that life treats you kind. Here it's the same old same old. A bit of pain, some colds and so on, but it has been worse so happy smiles. Well, went to the doctor with Philip yesterday only to find out what we already had kind of figured out. I am not the only one with light astma in the family. So some treatment for that and we'll see what happens. Hopefully it's something that he will out grow (read when he finish day care as Willy had the same it's gone when he isn't spending any time in that house anymore)...

It's midweek again and it's time for my B-team over at the Paper Shelter to host this weeks challenge. This week we are doing the theme "Make it Manly (a card for a boy or man)" theme justice. Really fun! Well that is what I think but I know that many is having trouble with this theme, but give it a try. It doesn't have to be that hard you know.

Once again I have used an image from the set called Happy Times and this time the kiddo is jumping on his trampoline. Having a great time! My boys love to jump on their trampoline and of course there needs to be at least one ball on there as well, otherwise no fun. As always the image is coloured with my Letraset markers, just because it's the fastest way to colour for me, not saying that it's very fast. LoL


This cards dp's are from a First Edition pad which I don't remember the name of at the moment, but it's all in blue, green and some beige colours. Really lovely actually even if it's a bit too much of glitter on some of the papers in my opinion. Is glitter really for boys? Well, maybe a little. A also used a green paper from the pad to back my panels with. Some papers you just know that you don't want to use on any creation and if they are low on details why not use them as backing card?

For decoration I have used a few little pennants made with a die from Die-Namics and some card candy in different blue shades to go with the dp's. Of course this was a card for one of Philip's friends earlier this year.
