Crazy4Challenges #36-For the Boys

Hi everyone,

Welcome to our Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week (Frances Byrne) is hosting the challenge.

May is an important month for Frances, as she is going to be a Grandma for the very first time *smile*. So she couldn't help but pop in a challenge relating to this event .... She is expecting a Grandson!

What are little boys made of?
Frogs and snails
And puppy-dogs' tails,
That's what little boys are made of.

So the challenge is to use this part of that well known children's nursery rhyme to create your card ..... it can be a boy card, something with frogs and/or snails, puppy dogs ... I think there is plenty of scope there for everyone. Have fun!

If you would like to play along with us, all you have to do is create a card/project and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword C4C36. Don't forget to go back to the C4C Blog and link it on Mr Linky so that everyone else can see it too.

My card is made with an image from Sun and fun from the Cute Companion's line available at Amy's Paper Romance There are so many cute stamps in this set that's it's unbelievable! I coloured the image with Copics, sponged in Caramel and Caribbean Ink. I added some rub ons to the kraft portion of the card for some extra dimension and used a wee hunk of patterned paper ( It think it's Graphic 45) that I found in the bottom of the scrap bin! Nothing much more to this card! Hope you'll play along with us this week!

Happy Stamping!
