Best Kid Ever!

I don't often really like the stamp sets that are meant for kids but this set that was just brought out in the new catalogue really appeals to me.  I'm talking about the Boys Will Be Boys stamp set.  My daughter, who has two little boys, actually squealed with delight when she saw the set in the catalogue.  How great is that?

I had been at a loss regarding a challenge I really wanted to enter.  The sketch left me blank---I really couldn't think of what I wanted to do, or if I came up with something, I saw that someone else had posted an entry far too similar for me to continue.  To top it off, I had decided to use a colour challenge for this card that kept me to Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.

And suddenly it all came together for me.  I knew I would use the Alphabet Press embossing folder and this stamp set.  I felt like a load had been lifted.  Funny?  Well I can get rather serious (read single-minded) about my crafting.

The sketch challenge is from CAS(E) this Sketch!


The colour challenge is from Pals Paper Arts.

I coloured the stamped Legos and building blocks with my Blendabilities and then attached them to the card with Dimensionals.  The embossing in the background is perfect against the toys.  I hadn't used the embossing folder before so this was a perfect match and a perfect opportunity.


Isn't that just a fun card?  I think I'm going to have to try it with some different coloured Legos, too.
