Hello Everyone...

Nice quiet weekend,been and gone, and Monday morning just kicked in.
Have the tree men coming this morning to remove all the trees [as promised 2 weeks] it will be like living in a goldfish bowl until I'm used to the extra light and views..and then my new neighbour will go halves in a new fence.. a bit higher than I was going to do, but I can live with that.

So lets move on...a new week and a new MAKE IT MONDAY ...with another great sponsor..MILKCOFFEE DESIGNS ...

For my card this week it tied in with a commission so was able to use this cute little guy SOCCER BOY ...

Coloured with Faber Castell pencils...inked up the sky and the ball has a sticker on top as the pattern didn't match when I coloured the sticker was a lucky find in my stash.

The very cool papers are from Rosie's Studio "Boys and their Toys"
and the sentiment tickets were a freebie in the days when I didn't write things down properly, but think they were from Whimsey??

Really simple boy card...just a few stars and corrugated card and I was done..

My POTW  this week is this gorgeous creation from #100 Rea

This is just gorgeous Rea, thanks for sharing with us at pretty.

Off to work shortly and then being taken out for lunch by a clients daughter as a thank her Mum has gone into care now and she would like it if we could stay in touch and be friends...that's nice....and I love lunch.

So there we go...join in with MAKE IT MONDAY  link everything you make over the next week if it has paper on your project, we don't mind it you want to link up an older project, just throw it in there,we would love to see them.

Going to enter into this challenge at Creative Corner  [childs play]

Thanks for stopping by, hope you all have a brilliant week and will see you tomorrow.

Hi Chrissy - just popped by to check out your latest creation and also to have another look at the lovely little mousey on your blog! I think he is sooo sweet.

Anyway ... I love this card, you say yourself it is a really simple boy card but it is amazingly effective. I love the colours and the use of the corrugated card - I have a stash of it and forget it is there! You have inspired me to try and find it!!!

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
