Totally Papercrafts ,,,,,, for a boy ,,,, :-)

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me eeee happy birthday to me :-) I don’t have any plans today except to spend the day doing nothing !! I will pop into me craft room for a little play later tho :-) ,,, what an exciting life I lead eh !! :-)

As you know I have just got back from the UK and I did have a lovely time meeting up with the lovely Mandy, aka Crafty Fox Cards, she, and her hubby took me to a craft shop on the outskirts of Oxford and I treated myself to some lovely goodies. They brought along their gorgeous dog, Jack too :-),, sooo cute ! I also met up with Jo, aka Rambling Boots and we had a lovely wander around the shops and lunch in London :-) So they really made my birthday special. Thanks girls xx It was fabulous to get together and I hope we meet up again in the near future :-)

So onto the Totally Papercrafts Challenge ! This week it is Sarah’s turn to choose the theme ,,,

Make a Card for a Male

makes a change from all the girly themes lately eh !! :-) now we know that some people don't like making 'boy's' cards ,, but ,, sometimes ya just have to !! :-) so put away the pinks and get out the manly colours and join in :-)

Meljen's Designs

We are sponsored by the lovely Melissa from Meljen Designs so a fab prize of 4 digi images of the winners choice :-)

For my card I followed Michelle’s fab sketch on the Sketch and Stash Challenge. I used this very cute Party Fergus from the Wild Rose Studio. I coloured him with Copics and inked the edges with a pink chalk ink from Colorbox. The papers are also from the Wild Rose Studio, the gingham is from the Wintry Christmas pack and the spotty from a Girly Polka Dots pack. I added some Robins Nest Dew Drops, lots of Star Dust Stickles and a neglected orange spotty ribbon that I have had for ages and never used. The sentiment comes with Fergus ad I used nestie circles to cut it out :-)

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some gorgeous cards for you to see so pop on over to the TPC Challenge to see them :-)
