Colourful Boy

Welcome followers, friends and fellow blog people. Hope you have all had a great day....

Today I spent most of it in bed or in the little girls room as I have a very bad stomach bug. Haven't eaten much at all today, should help with the diet lol

I took this evening to sit down and make a card. This is a bit different for me, as its a card for a young boy. I saw the image on the Katy Sue CD and fell in love with it. I teamed it up with matching paper from the CD as well as a backing sheet from kanban and some coredinations.

The colours I thought matched the image well and were nice and summery.

I'm not sure about this card yet, I think it's because it's not what I usually do!

Thank you to the regular commenters who always take the time to visit me, as well as the new visitors who leave comments....

Hugs Lisa xxxxx
