Blue for a Boy...

Hi folks,

An unusual daytime post from me - can you tell I'm on holiday woop woop!  I'm still mainly crafting at night so we can make the best of the days.  Unfortunately Rab isn't on holiday so we are just having trips out here and there.  On Saturday we went East and visited Brodie Castle which has a fantastic play park that Iona loves.  We then carried on to Elgin to Papercrafts Boutique where I purchased not one but 3 Sugar Nellie stamps one of which, called 'Callum', I've used on this card for Iona's Cheerleading Coach who recently had a little boy.

I've coloured in the image with Promarkers as usual then sprayed it with Crafter's Companion Spray and Sparkle for a little glitter.  I've then die-cut the image and a mount from blue pearlised card using X-cut nesting dies.  The gingham cardstock is just from a single sheet from the local craft shop and the patchwork paper was part of a challenge prize.  The sentiment is by LOTV and was stamped using Versamagic chalk ink.  The card is finished off simply with die cut nappy (diaper) pins made with a Sizzlits set, buttons and a mesh/net band (I never know what this is called lol).

If the weather stays dry we are planning visiting Nairn beach this afternoon for a walk, sandcastles and shell collecting and maybe some ice cream and crazy golf!

I wish to enter my card into the following challenges:
