Little Claire's male challenge

Good morning all! Hope you're well - I'm good and have schedule this post due to a planned early run this morning - I'm hoping to do 7 miles this morning - I'll do it but it may be very ploddy if my experiece of Friday evening is anything to go by!

Did you have a good Saturday? I took Lucy to her final exam ballet lesson before her exam next Saturday - then we all piled down to Blackpool zoo for the rest of the day - we were quite late getting there and saw lots of different things today - my favourite was watching the lions and tigers feeding time - and the meercats too - there were two or three very young ones eating dead chicks - I don't know why but I was quite surprised. You live and learn!

Today I've got the card I did for the Little Claire challenge this month which is masculine:


Such a cute stamp - I couldn't resist this one! Aren't they fun! The hedgies and trampoline are coloured with promarkers and cut with a spellbinder die before using teadye DI around the edges. I've used smaller versions of the same die for the sentiment and a larger one for the matt. I've tried to keep the colours as two blues, brown and white. The background paper has been embossed with an 8x8 embossalicious folder. The band across the middle is done using a Martha Stewart punch.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Little Clairelittleclairesdesigns: Masculine
Polkadoodlespolkadoodle: Animals
ccccardcrafterscircle: Happy Birthday
Incy wincy incywincydesigns- bingo - diecuts, blue, 5 stamps (each word was separate)

Thats it for today - so excited by tomorrow - its the start of the new challenge blog at Imagination Crafts - I hope you're going to join us!

Big Hugs
