Here Come The Boys - Birthday Blog Hop


Hello and hope this Sunday Morning finds you well.  I had a great day out yesterday with hubby, we went down to Rye on the bike and had some lunch and then came back the scenic route, lovely!  The weather was kind to us so we stayed warm and dry too!

Well we are celebrating a year of challenges over at Here Come the Boys and the theme is:

Birthday Easel Cards

We are sponsored by Bugaboo stamps and you can see all the details HERE!

Hopefully you have come from the fabulous Sharon's blog, if not pop over here to start at the beginning

All the DT have a prize up for grabs on their blogs and there is also a prize on the challenge blog so be sure to join us this fortnight if you can, we would love you to help us celebrate.

Here is the prize you can win from me, 2 stamps and an little assortment of flowers.  To be in with a chance of winning just pop your details in Mr linky and leave a comment, simples!  The winner will be chosen by random and its open for  2 weeks,  good luck!

Okay so here is my Easel card, I spotted this little chap over at Sassy Cheryl's and just had pop him in my basket!!  I got very close to chopping the top of his hat off, I started of with completely different papers but I didn't like them so I decided to change them but I had already matted him up and then that didn't go so I had it cut it down, phew close shave!

Stamp - Noah and patches - Sassy Cheryl's
Colouring medium - Copics
Papers  - striped One is actually a Papermania Christmas one and the red I think is Wild Rose Studio from the 'Gingham' paper pad
Sentiment - Stampin Up
