A BOY CARD...REALLY?


Hi All~~

What a day yesterday.
I set off on a coach with friends to travel three hours to Liverpool...Port Sunlight to be exact.
I spent the next 5 and a bit hours....Shopping...Shopping for CRAFT GOODIES!!!
I cannot think of another thing more exciting. (Well perhaps I can, but it was good!)

I spent a small fortune...again... but I did get some lovely Stamps, which over the next weeks I hope to show you on my cards.
Happy Mother's Day to all over the water, (UK Mother's Day is in March)

Hope you like my BOY card. Cannot remember the last time I made a male card, but it's about time, and because this Magnolia Edwin is one of my new stamps, I really enjoyed doing it. My Nephew is 13 in September and I will do him a card with Edwin on later in the year, I think he will like him.

I have used some Rayher "Garden" paper as the background. This paper is fab as all the tree's, grass and little basket are already on the paper, great.
I then used my new MS punch, did not realise it looked so like a trellis until I punched it out...great with this paper. Edwin was stamped a couple of times, I stamped him on different papers so I could cut out his clothes to decoupage them.
I added three Card Candy, and a lovely Penny Black sentiment saying "the tiniest things can carry you away".

Entered into the following challenges:
