Hey Boy ... just be YOU!

Morning everyone and it looks as if we could be a great weekend weather wise but not "counting my chickens" (as it were) as we all know how quickly things can change 😏 Just need it to stay dry as hubster and I wish to finish the last bit of fencing for one particular part of the garden. I'm not sure which is worse: painting fence panels or painting a ceiling. Tough call ...

Anyhow on to crafty things ... here is one of my cards from Dawny's show on Hochanda sharing Henri from Marmalade's World along with many accessories from the same collection ...

I stamped Henri on to a circular mat and coloured him with my Nuvo Creative pens, layering him on to more circular mats.

Using the accessory stamps, I created my background papers, cut them in to banners and layered them behind Henri. I added another banner with the sentiment (from Technique Tuesday) and a little tash.

Using some more of the accessory stamps and matching dies, I created my embellishments in complimentary colours. I think they frame the sentiment perfectly; again from Technique Tuesday.

The papers are from a set I purchased when in Ireland a while back and seem to only be available there ... which is a shame as they are a fabulous set and very boy/male themed.

Right, I've delayed enough and the paint brush is calling me ... catch you all later,
