Boyz to Men over at Pollycrafts Monday challenge

 (Please scroll down for my Cupcake Inspiration guest designer card)


I love making cards for boys (rubbish at the grown up male cards though!) so I just had to play in this week's Pollycrafts Monday challenge for Boyz to Men - here is my card...

 


This is Hoppy Days from the Swings And Slides release - he is such a cute dude!!  The Prima papers from the So Cute pad (got mine from Quixotic Paperie here) must have been made for this digi image - just a perfect match!  I had a lot of fun putting this card together - I think because I was a tom boy and could see that as me as a child instead!!

I am also entering my card into this week's That's Krafty Thursday to use kraft cardstock (I get mine from Quixotic Paperie here).  That's it from me today - more pruning in the garden to be done (groan...)!



Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Prima So Cute paper pad (got mine from Quixotic Paperie here)
Stamps: Pollycrafts  Hoppy Days, The Greeting Farm sentiment, CC Designs sentiment inside card
Mediums: Copics
Accents: none!
Tools:
Martha Stewart border punches and Nestabilitie label die inside card
