Typical boy

Well what a challenge this morning to find that the blogger interface has changed. I have been expecting it but oh boy, is it different. Looks much more modern but will take some getting used to I think, finding out where everything is.

I was very pleased to be asked to be a guest designer this week at Send a Smile 4 Kids. The DT were sent some digi images from the sponsor Karen's Doodles and I chose to use this one. Isn't he just a typical boy, all grubby and sticking plasters. He has been coloured with PMs. I've used a sheet of the old faithful Dovecraft papers, which I distressed. I used eyelets for the first time for months and some baker's twine. The football was cut from a sheet of card I bought about 5 years ago, sentiment and candi from Craftwork Cards.

Hi Marianne - what a wonderful card for a boy and yes, he looks a typical, grubby lad!!!!
I've managed to get my blog interface to revert to the old style ... not sure how, but I think I tab/drop down menu called "Options" on the right towards the top had something to do with it! I'm much a much happier techno-phobe now :o) !
Have a great weekend. Helen x
