Good morning
What a gorgeous sunny morning we have here in Wales today!
Well today is the day that a new collection of Sam's super drawings go on sale over at Lily-Boos Boutique and you get 6 fabby boy images for £1.99. If like me you struggle with cards for the boys this one is just perfect!
Here is my card revealed and I went for a more monochromatic look with a bit of red using Pink Petticoat striped backing papers. I cut the little tyres using my cricut and Celebrations cartridge (it's the top of one of the party hats!) and embossed them with CB Herringbone folder. The cute little boy is coloured with red an black promarkers and some chalking. The frame on both the sentiments and the image are from my Microsoft Digital Imaging programme and the sentiments are computer generated fonts are Elephant and for the word Tyre Eagle GT which looks like tyre tracks! A bit of matting and layering and there it is.
Pop on over to Lily-Boos to see the rest of these gorgeous boys images and don't forget to watch for the New Challenge Blog coming soon!!
Have a great Sunday everyone!

You go girlfriend! Now this card is what you call thinking outside the box. Julie you have done a fabulous job on this card. What creativity to use the party hats for tires. I never would have thought of that. TFS, whoever receives this one my friend is going to love it, like I do.

Hugz, xx
