Cupcake Craft Challenge #39.....Card for a Man or a Boy

Phew, here we are Monday again and I'm looking forward to going to work for a break lol! We were out all day yesterday as Sophie had her first majorette competition of the year. She got runner up in her individual event.....Fancy Strutt (set piece with a baton) and her dance team took first place for their Tinkerbell routine. She was really chuffed with her medals and went to bed last night a happy, but very tired bunny lol!

Todays' card is for the Cupcake Craft challenge and the theme has been set by Denise. She has chosen what can be a tricky theme for a lot of people and that is to make a card for a Man or a Boy! I knew as soon as I saw the theme that I wanted to use one of my dino digi stamps available from the Digi Stamp Boutique I've used my promarkers to colour this big fella in and he has been mounted on to a square nestie cut from SU card stock. Design papers are Basic Grey and the sentiment, brads and buttons are from my stash. I hope you'll come and play along with us this week, there's some great inspiration from the DT on the challenge blog so pop over and pick up some great ideas to help you on your way :) TFL

That brings back such memories...I very much enjoyed being a little majorette! I can still twirl by baton through my fingers! Yes, I still have all my batons! LOL
