Boys toys

Afternoon all!  I wanted to share a little card with you that I made whilst my daughters were swimming with their dad on Sunday morning - yes even swimming pools can be craft havens if you get organised!

The papers are a combination of trimcraft and basic grey and the image is crafty sentiments designs. I've coloured in using promarkers and added tool brads to go with the theme of boys toys. I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. Totally Gorjuss: Boys Toys
2. Do crafts Blog Friday sketch
3. Guylou's inimatability blog: brown, blue and cream.
4. Karen's doodles blog: Something for the kids
5. Here comes the boys blog: tiddly peeps challenge
Hoping you have a wonderful day - off to pick up my youngest from nursery and take her to ballet!

Hugs Rachel xx
