Happy Birthday....

Evening all, well been a strange day.  Both girls are poorly and so we have stayed in all day! The girls have had fun colouring with me though! They have both been sat at the table with their pencils, Amelia with one of my digs, Nancy with her colouring book and we have had hours of peace and quiet! Their friends came over to play and then at 5 it started to snow! I can't wait for tomorrow! 

I have been trying hard to work on cards for men and boys, I have so many images that I can use for them but then I never get round to it! OK I always make excuses not to! So today I tried and I tried and I still need to do some work but....

This is the adorable Splashing Toby from Some Odd Girl.  I have had him for ages, but never got round to colouring him! Today I have surprised myself! Im so happy with how he has turned out! but not so keen on the card, Its lacking something and I'm not sure what! 

I can't remember what pens I used... As the kids were at the table I kept my pens as far away from them as I could... Amelia did ask at one point if she could use my skin pens, I told her NO! She's only 4 1/2!

I have made this card for Amelia and Nancy's friend who turns 3 on Thursday.  Thats what made me finish this otherwise he would have been sat in the draw for a year waiting to be mounted! I used my QK bubble die and Moxie alpha to do the letters and bubbles! The number is just a peel off! Toby was die cut from a set of nesties I have! 

i would like to enter this card into the following challenges; 

Allsorts - Free and Easy February

aww I love splashing tobie! I saw this on the Some Odd Girl FB Page and had to come get a closer look. You colored him so fabulously!! Usually, when I am coloring the littles ask to have their own stamped stuff to color too.. and they also ask to use the skin tones.. my youngest are 5&6 so I usually will color in the skin real quick with like eoo or e11 to make them happy. :) Look at me writing a book on your blog.. lol Hope your littles feel better soon!

Fabby card Katrina. It's a great card for a mischevious little boy. There are a couple of those in this house ;)

I love making boys/mens cards. Think it's the colours....

Hope the poorly girls are feeling better today.
