Cupcake Craft Challenge 113 Boys & Their Toys

Monday morning means Cupcake Craft Challenge time! This week it's my turn to choose a theme for our challenge, so I decided to stay clear of Halloween & Christmas and choose another of my favourite things in my little world of card making... cards for boys (or men... but they're all boys at heart anyway). So the challenge is 'Boys and their toys'! Now contrary to belief of one of my fellow teamies (you know who you are lol) who first interpreted this in a bit of a naughty way... I was thinking more along the lines of my little card above... you MUST make a boys card/project and include a boy's toy of somesort on your creation... or make a toy for a boy if you're feeling really crafty!

My little card is made using one of the yummy Lili of the Valley stamps... I've also used the sketch by Bev for the current Lili of the Valley Challenge. I've coloured with Promarkers, the checked paper is from The Creative Cottage 'Snow Much Fun' digi pack, the sentiment is a stamp from Inkadinkadoo, and the rest is from my (messy) stash. I'm also entering my card in the following challenges...
Paper Sundaes... For Someone Little
CES Challenges... Male Birthday Card
Digi Doodle Shop... My Peeps

We're sponsored this week at Cupcake by The Ribbon Girl who is kindly giving some yummy ribbon stash away to one lucky random winner! Don't forget our monthly sponsor is Lili of the Valley so you could win 3 stamps too! Nip over to the Cupcake blog to see the nice (not naughty) creations from the other DT girls! I loved choosing the challenge this week, hope you can join us!
