Boy's card -white space!


Well it's been a busy day already getting my daughter out of the door for her weekend at Butlins. She was excited but a but scared bless her! She will have a ball.  While she's away my hubby suggested decorating our bedroom - glad I was sitting down or I might have fainted...... So we got some teal paint for one wall and had a pale mocha colour for the rest. So we'll see what happens! She's back on Monday so we'll sleep in her bed away from any paint smells.  I decided to do a less is more card today in the shape of a tag.  Saw the template in my stash and thought that'll make a change. So here it is:
I used : Squiggles digi stamp - Geeky Goth boy coloured with promarkers and pencils, Letter tiles and faux stitching with my black fineliner.

squiggle stamps - squiggle saturday - white space challenge
simply less is more week - 57 - neutral colours
send a smile 4 kids challenge - cas -clean and simple for kids
top tip tuesday challenge 71 - stitches real or faux
creative craft challenge - boys will be boys

Another sunny day in East Riding.  Before I go I just wanted to share my news that I won the recent challenges at craft your days away and at nutcrafters - 2 x £10 vouchers to spend.  How lucky am I.  I also made the Top 3 at moving along with the times and last but by no means least I've been accepted as part of the design team on the challenge blog Sparkles Christmas. 

Love Debs x
