Cards for Boys.....

Is it just me or do these flumox you.......I always struggle with birthday cards for boys...especially those for the big boys but today I am happy with this little card - for a little boy! This little guy is another digi I got from 'Some Odd Girls' - pretty cute huh! I've used inspiration from Case Study and colours from Play Date Cafe . Originally the colours there stumped me, but with a little copic colouring of some Basic Grey papers to MAKE them fit the colour profile I was happy with the result!

Cardstock: Coredinations
Paper: Basic Grey {Wander - Element Stickers, Vroom and Standby}
Ink: Memento Tuxedo
Stamps: Some Odd Girls - Hip Kody
Copics: YR14, YR21, YR23, G20, G24, G29, G67, E00, E02, E08, E51, E53, E57, C1, C5, C8, 100
Pens: Uniball Signo White and Zig Writer

This year: 6 Birthday cards, 2 thankyou cards, 2 just a note cards, 2 Baby Cards, 1 valentine, 2 Christmas cards, 6 12x12 LOs and 4 double 12x12 LOs


  1. Lovin this! A while back I was looking for a birthday card for a friend. I had zero luck finding what I was looking for. I told a group of friends about this problem one night while we were having a few drinks. We proceeded to get smashed and make up a bunch of greeting cards we found funny. I had been writing down the cards we made up and the next morning I read them. Much to my surprise the cards were still funny even when sober.

  2. What a gorgeous way to use the colours Leigh! This card is fantastic! thanks for playing at the PDCC this week :)
