Stamptacular Sunday - Bugs & Boys

Wow it has already been a whole week since my last post. The weeks just seem to be going by in a blur at the moment. I have another busy week ahead so that means now much time to craft for me, oh well.

Anyhow this week our challenge at Stamptacular is to create and card or project with either Bugs or Boys on it. If you create a card for both on it you will have your name entered two times into the weeks drawing.

This week we are lucky to have two awesome sponsors:

PRIZE: $10 Gift Certificate



PRIZE: Winner’s Choice of 3 Digi Images!

The DT were lucky enough to choose a stamp from Spesch Stamps to use for the challenge this week and I could not go past Max, he is so darn cute!

My card is super bright but I think really appropriate for youngish boys. It also means that you dont need lots of embellishments on it as the bright colours bring so much to the card anyhow. I had so much fun colouring this little dude and once again just stopped thinking about what I was doing and just colouring and having some fun. I even for the first time every managed to leave some WHITE in my colouring, lol!

I really struggled with ribbon in the end though I ended up going really simple with this black stringy stuff and the button. Happy with the overall effect.

Now be sure to pop over to Stamptacular and catch the amazing inspiration. We hope to see you join us this week, come on it is a perfect opportunity to get a male card made (as so many of us hate making them).

I am going to enter my card into the following challenges:

I will be back on Tuesday with my card for the new Mad for Markers Challenge.
