Little Darlings Challenge - Boy Cards

Happy Sunday! Hope you are having a great weekend. Was a great mail week here... I got my Little Darlings order in! And it is is just in time for the current challenge - A Boy Card. Yea... hard huh? LOL.... I have such a hard time with those cards for the men in our life. I know we all do don't we? But it is a fact that we still need cards for the guys too.

Here is my card -



My Little Darlings image is called Buddies - I just think he too cute! Or is it that little frog? Oh they are both cute. I colored with my Copics - Then I went to work to find papers that were "boyish"  - I found My Minds Eye Miss Caroline Fiddlesticks pad - Perfect! I love the wood fence pattern paper! I cut out all my patterns along with a cream colored card stock - rounded all the corners. I used a kraft card stock for the base. I sewed down everything. Had some fun with a larger Zig Zag stitch as well. 

I dug through my old punches and found one of my fishers punches that create the corner slots - I haven't used it in forever. Then I found a piece of ..... of... I can't think of what to call it. "Webbing? Netting?" I have no idea, but it looked like it would go well with my image and card  - so I wrapped it around. Three Making Memories heritage brads, and then a piece of ribbon with "Thank You" printed on it.  I think it really would work for anyone... but for challenge purposes... this one is for a guy! 

A simple inside with matching pattern papers.


Have you played with the Little Darlings images yet? You have too! Really sweet and for their challenges you can use Little Darlings, Cutie Pies and now....Saturated Canaries!   Yep... lots of great images for this challenge! Visit the Little Darlings Challenge for more information -
