Boys, boys, boys over at Pollycrafts Monday!

(Please scroll down for my Make It Monday DT post!)


It's a new challenge over at Pollycraft Monday Challenge and this week the gorgeous and lovely
Faye has chosen the theme of....


Boys, Boys, Boys!


I love making boy cards so here's my take with newbie Casper Silvermist Too Cool for School...


 


I am in love with Casper!  Look at that 'I'm too cool' expression on his face!  I used one of the freebie sentiments that you can still download here.  It's meant for spookier makes but I think it matches fine for a messy boy card!  Go here to get some inspiration from the rest of the DT!


I used papers from Crate the Paper School Spirit paper pad (from Quixotic Paperie here) and the sketch from A Sketch For You To Try...







I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Annette said...

Hi MaryJ, I love thiss card infact I love all the cards you make, such a talented lady. I hope you don't mind me asking, your matting and layering is so precise, do you use a guillotine or another particular cutting system, I can never quite get it spot on and have tried so many tools so far. Annette

Faye said...

Your card says it all; awesome. Totally. xxx
