This has been a very rough week.  I can't seem to shake this cold and with the weather changing from the 60's to the teens in one day I'm not sure I will shake it for a while.  I've been struggling with this challenge also.  I am totally out of my comfort zone in dealing with boys.  Both my kids are girls.  In essence I have very little experience with what boys like or much about them.  This is a very simple card yet I think I've spent more time contemplating it than any other card I have ever done.

So welcome to another fortnightly challenge at


Our challenge is "Slugs and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails".  We are being sponsored by Kenny K.

The image I am using is called Victory Kid.  I've colored him with Copic, Whisper Strokes and Stampin' Up markers.  The papers are Kraft, Create with TLC and my scrap pile.  The sentiment is cut out with an EK Success punch.  I also used Distress Ink from Tim Holtz.  

Please go over to the CWWC blog and see what all the other DT have created for you.  Hope to see you in the challenge this time around.

Thanks for visiting! Have a fabulous day!
