Boy Cards

Boy cards are so hard to make. I am not sure why...but I struggle all the time to make them. Tomorrow my DD is going to a birthday party for one of the boys in her class. I dragged out Wild About You (thank heavens it's not retiring) and came up with this card:

I stamped the crocodiles in Green Galore. Then using Glorious Green and the dots from Itty Bitty Backgrounds, I used the kissing technique- not that you can really tell. I punched them out using the 1 1/4" square punch and sponged the backgrounds in Barely Banana using my sponge daubers. I attached the squares to Whisper White to make them look like polaroids. The Sentiment is from It's your Birthday and I did the same with it too. I tore the bottom section off the Kraft cardbase and added a strip of Banana cardstock that I had stamped with the same Itty Bitty dots stamped in green galore. I also added some hemp twine just for interest.

I hope you are all having a great day. I want to thank everyone for their kind thoughts and prayers during the last few weeks. It has been tough at times but we are getting through each day as best we can.
