A boys card for a change

Alicia asked me to do a boys card EEEK I always find them hard Boys and Men so difficult (in every way really lol) anyway I digress so I inked up one of my LOTV boys stamp and prisma coloured it then grunge stamped it round the edge which I am doing more now, I like to fill in large expanses of white. The backing papers are a K&CO pad and green bazzil.

Then I added a few buttons tied with twine and added a sentiment in the corner and bish bash bosh done, NOT A GOOD PIC the colours look a bit wishy washy I think richer in real life xx

The weather here in Sheffield has been slightly varied, where I live its been fabulous all day till about 3.30 then it rained hard for 5 mins, in Hillsbourgh where Holly lives its pelted it down and hailed like "the day after tomorrow" its come through her bay window and flooded the cellar and fused the fridge freezer, poor babes and to add insult to injury she is trying to get to Crystal Peaks to pick up her boy friend and is being diverted coz Penistone Road is flooded up to the windscreens on some cars I don't know if it floods in Sheffield Holls is always there!!! she had to be plucked of a building on the wicker in '07 when it was really bad we will have to call her Noah lol xx

I just hope the rest of the weekend is sunny and warm. A lovely easter to eveyone and I shall be sooo glad when mini eggs are off sale !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol xx
