Totally Papercrafts ,,,,,,, Boys will be Boys ,,,

Hi all ,, well last week we had Girly Girly, now its the Lad’s turn ,,, don’t all groan at once lol ,,,,

Before moving on to the challenge we are welcoming a new DT girlie to the team ,,, Welcome to the team Jeni , if you haven’t seen Jeni , aka Flip Flop Creations then you’re in for a treat ! :-)

It was Mel’s turn to choose so you can all throw your tomatoes at her :) Actually I do like making cards for Lads, generally more simple and less faffing about with embellies :-)

We are sponsored by Charmed Cards and Crafts and one lucky entrant can win a choice of 2 digi bundles :-) Fabulous prize :-)

I needed to make a card for my nephews 18th birthday ( I doubt that he will read this ,,, ) He is having flying lessons and his ambition is to be a pilot so I HAD to get this fab Snoopy Flying High stamp ! and a while ago I saw fab card on Debby’s blog using the Torn Paper stamp and thought it would work with this stamp too :-) I coloured the image with Copics ,, no shading cos its a cartoon. I then stamped the torn paper stamp onto some Graphic 45 Cirque paper and cut out the ‘hole’ I then made a cloudy sky using Copics behind it, then stamped it onto white card and cut out the torn edges,, phew ,,, what a job !! . The paper actually said Death Defying before I stuck a cloud in front of it !! :-) The clouds are CC Designs cloud dies and the Happy Birthday strip is punched with a Martha Stewart punch.

Don't ya just LOVE Scoopy !! :-)

Thanks for looking, the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the TPC to see them and don't forget to go and say hello to Jeni Smile
