bows aren't just for girls - Sugar Nellie DT

Good morning everyone did you all have a great day yesterday...well I didn't quite make it to tidying my craft room, I went in there and picked up two boxes then got distracted with the contents and made this card instead...oops lol...oh well it gives me another excuse to pick up a couple of other things...I'm a bit down in the dumps today as my lovely Phil isn't coming home this weekend hes too busy at work and has to stay so I have my sad face on :-(....my card for today is for the Sugar Nellie DT and using this fantastic Thomas digi, isn't he just the sweetest little fella you have ever seen, I coloured him with distress inks and teamed him up with this lush double sided paper from Echo Park, its from their Little Boy collection and is called Vroom isnt this just the perfect paper for a boys card...

when I saw this paper I wanted to mix loads of colours and designs on the card I made with it so that's what I did, I used a mix of ribbon scraps to make a huge triple bow (see they aren't just for girls cards lol), I cut out a few of the cars and the name tag from the paper to use on the card too and finished with some coloured buttons and a thick red gingham...now seriously got I have got more colours or patterns on this card do you think lol...the fab sketch is from the Everybody Art challenge and I'm also entering it for the DYSU Bow challenge , Papertake weekly Trio tastic challenge and Totally Gorjuss button challenge, 3 ribbon bow, 3 buttons, 3 cars...well I might go out today or I may just do some crafting and I have loads of blogging to catch up on so your guess is as good as mine...whatever your up to today I hope its something exciting and nice
Ooooohhhh by the way I will be back tomorrow with a really exciting announcement I have been bursting to tell you so speak then

Hi Mina. Love this so much. Such a cute image, reminds me of the bowl cut haircut my brothers used to have. Such a great use of colours, the paper is great and love how you have used the ribbons. Wonder what DT team you are joining. Donna

cockney blonde said...

Ooo lurve how you've done this. I've just got this digi image and not got round to using it yet but you have given me food for thought, x

Georgiegirl2012 said...

this is so sweet. Not sure the haircut is what is currently "in vogue" but when my eldest was about 5 (he's nearly 24)one of his friend's looked exactly like this.

Dorcas said...

Lorraine said...

Mina, that is a sweet boy image! Love your coloring of it, the papers you used and your little car/truck cutouts (cool that you used a little car in the middle of the ribbons!). Hope you keep yourself busy so you don't miss Phil too much!

Linda C said...

Your coloring amazes me. I keep studying it and I am in awe. You said you used distress inks. I am familiar with Tim Holtz ink pads, but are these markers or did you use a brush to apply ink from the ink pad? Absolutely beautiful.
