Boys Will Be Boys -Sketch Saturday Challenge #194 -Sponsored By Simon Says Stamp!

Time is just flying right on by this week and every week! I can't believe it's already time for another Valentine's day party at my kiddos school! I have lots to do this weekend and helping my kiddos craft their own Valentine's is on the top of my list! I'm kicking myself in the foot right now for promising them we would do that instead of getting the store bought ones this! But, I know it will be fun for all of us!

~~~~~~~~~~♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥~~~~~~~~~~'s time for another fun challenge at "Sketch Saturday"! And boy are you in store for the most fabulous sketchy from Jo...well all her sketches are fab, but I had such a blast with this one! I'm continuing with my personal goal of creating more cards for the boys...since I don't make enough of them.

The sketch:

This weeks challenge is sponsored by our friends at "Simon Says Stamp"!

A very generous $25 gift certificate will be awarded to our lucky challenge winner this week to spend on goodies in the SSS store!


This one just called for buttons which I love to break out every chance I get!! I also created this one for the challenge over at "Farm Fresh Challenge" which called for dimension! So I cut out this little cutie and popped him up on dimensional 3D squares! I was so excited to break open my new "DCWV" stack to create this one!I I used the new "Playground" set which is full of cuteness and all the designs are created on Kraft cardstock...just adorable! I used 2 different embossing folders for the little circles on each side and then buttons to create the rest of the circles for the sketch!

This little cutie is from "The Greeting Farm" stamps and came as part of this set which can be found HERE! I was pretty much happy with everything on my card except my coloring! I messed up so horribly on his hair and didn't realize it or notice until I was done coloring all of him. He looks like he has a huge skunk! Oh well...hope it's not too noticeable??

The sentiment is one of my own and can be found in the shop HERE! It's one of the designs I made last year and I just now completed a whole set, which is all boy themed!

Recognize the little dino?? It's actually came as part of the stamp I used on the front! I couldn't fit the whole stamp on the front, so I decided to put this little cutie on the inside! Super cute!
