Apologies for the lack of posting - life has been busy, or busier than usual, I should say :-)  I did get to do a tiny bit of crafting in between bottles and nappies - a gift box for a newborn girl, which hopefully I will be able to post soon (as soon as I get the time to take a picture, edit it, etc, that is!), and a couple of cards for upcoming OLL challenges, but I hardly had any time to check out or comment on other blogs :-(

I've been meaning to use this digital image, Alfonzo, from Little Musings for ages - I think it is cute and ideal for a boy's birthday card. I finally got the chance last week when I needed a birthday card for my friend's 9 year old son. The image was coloured with Letraset Promarkers. I also used a digital star paper for the background, and wooden stars as embellishments; added some 3D gloss finish for dimension and a computer generated sentiment. Simple.
Onto some challenges:
Simon Says - Card for a child
Fussy and Fancy - Card for a child
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - One for the boys
Paper Sundaes - Childhood memories
Ladybug Crafts ink - Celebration
Totally Stampalicious - Anything goes
