Hope your week is going well.
We are still in a deep freeze with no sign of Spring yet.
I am so anxious to get rid of the winter boots and coats. I've been
looking at the new spring clothes flooding the shops.  So many
lovely colours that inspired me but yellow is my favourite so far,
so I decided to use it in my creation today.

~~~ The Cutie Pie Challenge ~ One for the Boys

Hi everyone,

It's time for a new challenge at 

The Cutie Pie Challenge #132

 where our lovely Sarah is hosting.
The theme will be "Card for a Boy, or for that Special Boy.

I've coloured with Copics a digital image from Whimsy Stamps
called "Gecko Love".  Another Crissy Armstrong design.
I think my hubby will have a smile on his face when 
he sees this one.  It will remind him of our recent trip to Aruba
where gecko's and iguana joined us daily at the pool garden.



Another cas design.  Again I've created the sentiment in word.
I really am rubbish at stamping. 
I use a scrap piece of paper to test my measurements as to where it should print,
that way I do not ruin a good piece of cardstock.  Frame cut using a MFT die
then adhered with pop dots for dimension.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
I do hope you can stop by the blog and see the wonderful
inspiration from my talented team mates, and play along with us
if you can.
