By the river


Good morning everyone

Hope you are all well and enjoying the week-end. My son has another cricket match today, I'm not too sure if it will stay dry this time, we were very lucky with the weather yesterday.

Since I have been making lots of girly cards lately I decided to make one for a boy this time.
Yesterday's card used one of my favourite LOTV images, this one is another favourite of mine. I think it's because it reminds me of my son although he is older now his hair still looks like that!!




Sorry about the blurry photo again, I think when I enlarge the image it goes out of focus a bit

Items used:

Image - LOTV By the river, coloured with promarkers and white gel pen
Backing papers - creative memories and doodlebug designs
Embossing folder -craft concepts retro circles
ribbon, thread and charm from stash




I am entering this card into the following challenges
Paper Crafting Journey - colour it up
Bearly Mine challenges - how charming!
Creative Inspirations  - card for a male
Jellypark Challenge   - boy crazy
Lilis Little Fairies - one for the boys
Delicious Doodles  -  for the fellas
Phindy's Place - fathers day or male card
Cute Card Thursday - water water everywhere
The Crafty Pad - lets hear it for the boys


Right time to catch up with all of your lovely creations again I think.
Hope you all have a good day, despite the weather
Hugs for now

Linda (Lindyloo) said...

Hi Sue,
This is lovely and such beautiful shades of blue too.
As to your pic, it looks good to me. If you do want to do close ups more, have a look on your camera for a close up mode (mine is a little flower next to the menu button). Some have a macro setting. These allow for really good close ups. Take care love Linda xx
