Male and Shaped Card

Good Morning,

A rushed post this morning because I ran out of time last night.  I have two cards the first is for the challenge at Less is More challenge #69 which asks for a card that is neither a square nor a rectangle.

I have made this card for a couple of girlfriends in a variety of colours and it has proven very popular.
Supplies: Blue card, design paper, the duck from Cutting Cafe, ribbon and Kaiser pearl

Here is my next card which is square and for a little boy
Supplies:  Green, blue and white card, design paper, image from Mo Manning, Lyra pencils, buttons and Annabelle's Hemp Twine

This card is for
Mo's Challenge Blog - World Traveller
Here comes the boys  - anything goes
2 Sisters - Boys
Crafty Catz - Card for a man
As I was making the card I was thinking of when my son was this age,  Heading out into the world, eagerly and confidently, keen to see what the world held for him.  I was so happy for him and so proud but I was also sad for myself because these were his first steps away from me.  So I thought this would also fit in with the challenge at Joanna Sheen   - Remember when.
Must fly
Have a good day


  1. i know how you feel abt your son leaving you..i am also sad about the thought of being away from my baby :(
