One for the Boys! I have run out of cards to send to Postpals (the boy ones) so I thought I'd make a small batch to keep me covered for emergencies too. The braid/ribbon I had bought many months ago, didn't match with anything at home but just thought it would come in handy one day...and it matches so well, adds texture, with this Digi d/load from Creative Cottage Wild West Monkeys, fabby pre-coloured kit with the scope of quick easy cards, love them, orange is from PP Autumn blossoms. I thought the kids would love something a bit different from the norm of a flat card, so I placed a little acetate tab to make it bounce back. I've almost used every scrap as you can see from the corner bits on the bottom card, gorgeous sentiment from the lovely Paulette who gives away soooo much on her fab blog! These will be flattened before I send them off as the postage rate here is sky high if a little bump stops the whole letter going through their plastic measuring thing. Sometimes I've got to take a few embellishments off anyway especially for the much younger kids for obvious reasons. So all is good today...

Do you think it will go for any challenges...ofcourse it will, namely Cards For Men 'Animals', Pixie Dust Studio # 'Men/Boys in our lives', Stamp Challenges 'Something Digi', Crafty Cardmakers 'Stitching' and One Stop Crafts # is 'pop-ups'. There's candy at the top from me. Hope it's a good Sunday wherever you are, bye!
