Little Boy Blue

Good morning,

Well, I thoroughly enjoyed my half term break, although not quite as much crafting as I hoped!

I'm back today with our next challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz and this time it was my turn to choose the theme - so here goes with


Now, this is open to your interpretation, but I was thinking of little baby boys when I chose the theme - so here is my DT inspiration for the challenge ...

I used another of my new embossing folders to make the background - it's called 'Basket Weave' and has to be yet another favourite! I inked it with Broken China distress ink to enhance the embossing, then layered it onto co-ordinating cardstock. 

The image is another of my many LOTV stamps and is called 'Special Delivery' - just perfect for the challenge. I coloured it with just four shades of Promarkers and mounted it onto a die-cut 'Eyelet Square' (which I cheekily cut from the background layer - ssh, no-one would ever know!)

A piece of blue polka dot ribbon to finish off and I pinched four of the tiny waste circles from the die-cut to add to the corners as faux brads.

Hope you can come and join us this time.
Hugz, Jan xx


  1. A beautiful card, beautifully coloured, and I love how the basket weave background links to the image

  2. Love your sweet image and card.

  3. I spotted this EF in The Craftbox the other day and was sorely tempted! LOTV rules OK when it comes to character stamps! :)

  4. Love the image and your colouring is perfect as always x
