Cutie Pies DT Card - All About The Boys

Good morning!

Hope you are all having an enjoyable Easter weekend?  We had glorious sunshine yesterday and went to nearby Brodie Castle for an Easter Egg Hunt which we followed with a trip to the beach then rounded off with a visit to my sister in law and partner.  It was strange being on the beach in light clothes looking over the Moray Firth to snow on the hills on the other side!  Sadly Rab was working so it was just the girls.  Planning a quiet day today and hopefully get a bit more organised with upcoming DT work.

Anyway, back to the task in hand...  Today we have a fab new Cutie Pie  challenge starting and our theme this month is 'All About The Boys'.  Please remember that to be eligible for a prize or top pick your card must include a CUTE image.  We'd love you to join us with your take on the challenge.

Our sponsors this time are Bugaboo Digi Stamps and Bunny Zoe who have some fab prizes on offer.

I have used a fab wee digi from Bugaboo called Kidlet Superman and coloured him with my Promarkers

I used a paper from the Forever Friends A Christmas Tale collection to make the starry night sky background and mounted it on red and black card.  I used a Tim Holtz On The Edge Townscape die for the houses and placed some yellow card behind the 'windows'.  I used a sentiment generated on the pc and finished of with a tiny die cut star and a button from my stash.  I actually really enjoyed making this, I sometimes struggle a bit with male cards but I'm really pleased with how this turned out.

I'll be back a wee bit later on to share my thoughts for day 6 of the 31 Day Blog Challenge.

Until then, hugs, Shona xx
