All About the Boys at Lili's Little Fairies Challenge

Good Morning to you all my wonderful crafty friends.
I hope you are well and having a good week so far. Sending hugs to those in need of them.

Today is the start of a new Lili's Little Fairies Challenge
This week our theme is

All About the Boys

For this challenge we are offering a 2 week GDT spot to the lucky winner!

I used to struggle a bit with making male cards but just recently I have found that has changed and I did actually enjoy making this card, probably helped by using this adorable image which is from one of the LOTV sketch pads.


Items Used:
Image - from LOTV sketch pad Vintage Boys. Coloured with Promarkers
Memory Box Honeysuckle Vine
Marianne Designs Bird on Branch small


If you take a look at the Lili's Little Fairies Challenge you will see the wonderful creations made by this week's design team and see who were the winners of the last challenge


I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:
Stamping Sensations - Wings and Things with a touch of vintage
Inky Impressions - Masculine
Penny's Challenge - dies and/or punches
C...is for Challenge - Animals
Lisa B Designs - Vintage

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop and look at my blog today. I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make
bye for now
hugs

Sue, I'm so sorry I haven't been able to visit your blog for long time. You have been very busy in a while. You have shared so many gorgeous cards in this time. I even had to click "older posts" to see rest of them. I'm so embarrased of my self. I love all your card and I missed watching your blog. You always choose so beautiful designer papers on your card and they even look beautiful after putting them together. This is magic to me.
Hugs,
Eret
