To the fellas, go fly a kite!!!

Hello everybloggy buddies,
it is the dawn of a new Wednesday in the UK
and that means it is time for a new challenge at
Creative Inspirations
This week we are asking you to create
What will your one be?
I can't wait to see!!!!

This precious little hAnglar was a birthday present from a very dear blogging buddy, I won't name her, I don't want her to get pummeled with requests from eager hAnglar fans, lol!!! This stamp called Pojke med drake, which I imagine means something like Pojke with kite.... was coloured in distress inks, I stamped the image another time to create a shadowed background courtesy of Faded Jeans distress ink and a warm greey Prismacolor marker, and popped him up with foam dots, I also ran some string through the kite to enhance the image. The papers are K & Co., the lace is that yummy Tickled Pink Stamps house specialty, find it here, brads and metal sentiment are by Making Memories, the gingham is from Hobby Lobby and the button and hemp are from my stash. I distressed the papers in Brushed Corduroy and used my scissors to distress the edges of, well, everything.

Did you already notice that there's a
hAnglar challenge blog
for us to play in out there??? Hot diggity dog!!! Their challenge this fortnight is a themed one, give our creations a Shabby-look which I hope I have done well :)Cupcake Crafts is hosting a For the boys challenge as well, so I will pop this in over there as well as Friday Sketchers, as this is my rendition of their fabulous sketch, and the splendiferous Stamp Something is having a Happy Somethings challenge!!

I hope you will pop over to Creative Inspirations with your projects this week, I've put together a little prize for one lucky winner that will surely make you smile :)
Take Care for now,

I love the layout Stephanne. I don't see you make boy card very often and I love it. It's got a great vibe. And I loved the post heading...lol

Janiel/ janny said...

Oh Stephanne, This is adorable! Love the vintage feel to it..
hugs, Janiel

Marlene said...

Wowza...beautiful card! Your attention to detail is impressive. I can't believe you distressed it with a pair of scissors! That must have taken some care and time. If I had done that, I would have likely ended up with stitches...in my hand. Such a klutz.

Elise said...

Ahhhh (exhaling), what a cutie hAnglar stamp ... gotta love em! You've colored him GORGEOUSLY as always and your distressing is such a BEAUTIFUL touch to everything!!! I know everytime I visit your blog, I'm in for a TREAT!!!! You are truly AMAZING sweetheart!!!!
