For The Boys

Good morning I hope your week is going well whatever you are up to!  Today sees the start of a brand new challenge at The Paper Shelter and the theme this week is For The Boys.  Here is my card:

I have used The Paper Shelter image Extreme which is available here.  I coloured him with my Copics but if you don't like colouring all Paper Shelter images come with a pre coloured one as well as one to colour.  The papers are a digi set from The Sweet Shoppe called A Boys Life. The skateboard comes with the set I, cut it out and mounted it on some card for stability and the put Glossy Accents on it. The dies I used are Dienamics Fishtail Stax, Oval Pierced Stax and Stars and the sentiment is also from a Dienamics set.  Here is another view:

I think Harrison would love this he is always mesmerised by the boys on skateboards when we go to the park. As always there is a wonderful prize that Veronica and Pedro are offering for one lucky winner:

So we would love to see your card and if you use a Paper Shelter image then you could win a $30 voucher for all other images you would win 3 images of your choice.  Please go along to The Paper Shelter challenge and see what the rest of the talented DT have done.

Challenges I would like to enter:

I am off early today to spend the day with my daughter and Rowan! The midwife is coming back today because when she came on Monday he had not put any weight on so fingers crossed! They are feeding him every three hours trying to get him to gain.  I hope you have a wonderful day whatever you are doing and a big thank you for coming to visit me! Take care xx

Good afternoon Susan, I love the cute image so wonderfully coloured and a great design.

I have just come home from my friend Elaine's, she is worried about her new Granddaughter who is also not feeding well. Our DIL Audrey (a midwife) told Jennifer to use "her" milk in a bottle to see if that will help. So far so good we can just hope it continues. Not the way Jennifer wanted it to go but if Emily starts to feed and put weight on does it really matter.
Hope Rowan has put on some weight over that past few days
