B is for....

Birthday, Boy, Balloon and Bank Holiday Monday!! I am always short of male cards so thought I would make a special effort and do a male birthday card. I wonder why we all find male cards such a struggle?

This image was kindly given to me by Kerry and I have coloured him in with my whispers pens and watercolour pencils! I love sugar nellie stamps, my collection is ever growing but I don't actually have this one!Large spotty background paper is from my K & Co Hopskotch pad and the smaller spotty paper is from the dovecraft male pack. The blue CS has been run through my cuttlebug with the distressed stripes embossing folder. The sentiment is from Penny Black and has been matted onto blue CS before being added alongside the image. I have finished it with two metallic star brads from my stash . I have also added clear gloss to the balloon, although it doesn't appear very well on the picture (or it might be that I added it as an after thought after I'd taken the pic)!

Well it's official. No more crafting for me for a while. I have packed away all my craft stash into boxes ready for the move on friday. I have no idea when I will be able to get it all out and start crafting again as there is so much to do in the new house. So my only crafting fix fro the forseeable future will blogging. I'll continue to upload some projects that I have made and will look forward to visiting all your blogs to look at your latest creations and to keep me inspired! I also have my new craft room to look forward to, and I have been planing it's LO and what new storage solutions I will need already! Can't wait to have my own crafting space!

Enjoy your BH monday whatever you are up to!
