~ Birthday Soccer Boy ~

Hi everyone,
What a hot summer we are having.  Thank goodness for a/c.  Even thought it is always a few degrees cooler here by the lake, the humidity has kept me indoors a lot during the day and that should mean more time to craft.  Somehow that does not happen.  I am still struggling with my desire to create but I am taking a simple card making class this week which I hope will spur me on.

Today starts a new challenge at

The Cutie Pie Challenge #126

where we are sponsored by the fabulous

Bugaboo Stamps


I've used one of the Brat images called Soccer Boy available here in the shop.
Coloured with Copics then fussy cut.  Super star is a Whimsy die cut, HB - Spellbinders
Stars - Memory Box die
