Look......a BOY'ish' card!!!!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone. I'm quite proud of myself today, as I have a card to show you which doesn't have one single scrap of pink, lilac or red and no girlie images. I know this doesn't sound that astounding, but it wasn't until recently that I realised most of my cards turn out......well.......a little 'girlie'. I don't take blame for this, as living in a home with a 75% female population..........this is bound to happen. Besides, you have to admit - 'girlie' things are much cuter! (Have I started something there?)
Anyhow, with all that said, I am loving today's card, mainly because I think the image is seriously cute (and could be used for boy or girl!) and I love this line of paper. So let's get down to business...........here's a very generous (or very lucky) mouse............

So, I'll tell you another thing I like about this card..........the image was FREE ! Can't get much better than that. I don't know about you, but I find most of my 'freebie' digi's through Free Digital Stamps, (you can also find their link and latest post in the right sidebar of my blog) which is an awesome site that does all the hard work for you ie. hunt down digi's. Today's digi is no exception, as I got it through them, from a site called Torico's Digital Gallery.

Onto the rest of the details. I coloured predominently with Copic's, but used Prisma pencils for the mouse fur. I used a Nestie to cut around the image, leaving the gifts poking through the top, and sponged chalk ink around the edge. Papers are from Basic Grey's Marjolaine series (love em!) and the ribbon is from Autumn Leaves. The buttons and natural Hemp tied through them, were $$ store finds, and I stamped the sentiment using one of those stamps you find in the $1.50 bin at Michael's......'G Studio' I think. Lastly, I stapled in various places......just had to get those in there as another 'manly' element! lol

So, there we are. This little fella will be heading into a few challenges I'm sure, so I'll be back with those shortly.

I will be here again tomorrow, as there are more exciting things happening over at the Lollipop Shop. Be sure to check back around midday to find out what's going on - Clue......there are prizes involved!

Have a great day......I hear there is snow heading into these parts later, so keep warm.....keep safe.
