HOW ABOUT A BOY CARD!



Hello Everyone....

Ever had that strange feeling that you didn't know how to start a post, and re typed it several times before you made up your mind...well.. I just did, so wafted instead...

Decided it was time to get a masculine card done and found a terrific challenge over at ..Kenny K's  [TEENZ ROCK]...and I'm sure they think they do..



Well, this little dude rocks..what a great male image, especially for the teens...



All coloured up with my Faber Castell pencils, and paper pieced his trousers...



Papers are Authentique "Comfort & Familar"...and the neat zipper down the side is a roll of tape....how cool..

And as there is two sides to every story....here is side two..



Some more zipper tape inside...

The glitzy top hat is a sticker from my stash, and the sentiments are held together with a clip off one of my jerseys that I bought in Aussie, they held the price tag on and to me they are priceless...

The senitments are off a 12x12 scrapbook sheet that I've had forever...

Going to enter into these challenges...

Thanks for stopping by...hope your week has started well with a hiss and a roar....mine is stranger than ususal, but that is a whole different story...may just share that tomorrow...see you then..

Luv CHRISSYxx
