Big Surprise, Little Boy!

How cute is this little character? He was part of the big surprise my kind hubby gave me recently, another Lili of the Valley stamp... I just adore these little boy stamps! Anyway, I had to do a card with him pronto, and I thought of the K & Co papers I had in my stash, thought they'd be perfect with the little toys! I've used the sketch over at Sketch Saturday, it's really easy and versatile! My little man is coloured with Promarkers, the sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly.

Well, last night we had thunder & lightning here... we needed it as the temperature yesterday was 40°c... I was just melting in the heat and stayed indoors all day. So today it's a little cooler but so so muggy! When I lived in the UK I was forever complaining that it wasn't sunny enough, now I've got the sun I stay indoors and look for shade! There's no pleasing some people lol! Hope you all enjoy a lovely, sunny weekend (but not too hot)!
