pink is for boys too...

LinkGood morning everyone bbbbbrrrrrrrr it is freezing here it was a frozen wilderness last night and I have rarely seen such a crisp clear sky, it made me wish I had a telescope to see the stars more closely...hasn't this week just flown by, I cant believe its February already it only seems two minuets since Christmas, is it just my age that makes the months seem to fly by or are you all thinking the same thing...I didn't get out yesterday but had a crafting day instead and did loads of lush relaxing colouring, I think colouring and cutting out are two of the most relaxing things to do, they should made stressed high powered businessmen do them to relieve stress, can you imagine them with their teeny scissors in their glossy offices, it would be worth teaching them just to see it lol...right that's my little ramble over for today now onto my card, I love this cute little With Love Boy from Mo's Digital Pencil don't you, I have the girl version done to show you on Sunday too...I coloured this little fella with distress inks and paper pieced the cut out heart and pieces...now I know pink isn't usually for boys but I think this Basicgrey Urban Couture/Silk paper is beautiful and matches the green Archaic/Timeworn paper so well and it makes a perfect Valentines card don't you think...I added a Gingham Wired Edge Gold Thread Ribbon - Green from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and finished with a few buttons...the lush sketch is from the Skipping Stones Design sketch challenge and I'm also entering it for the Cardmadfairy Digi Day challenge and Scrappin' it challenge...well I'm of out to the Supermarket today with my lovely Dad and Phil who has a few days off work...oh joy of joys how much do I love supermarket shopping lol...whatever your up to today I hope you stay warm and have fun

Beautiful card Mina and I think (in this case)pink definitely is for boys. Love the image and the great ribbon and buttons used.
I agree that the months seem to fly by. I think you probably love supermarket shopping about as much as I do lol.

Hi Mina, I would have never been game enough to try it, but yep pink for boys does work, and I have to agree with you on the colouring front too, it is so lovely to sit and colour , I could do it all day. I hope it warms up a little for you there, have a good day.
Hugs Cheryl

Why not pink for the boys, they wear pink sweaters and t-shirts anyway so we are completely used to it by now (soooooo not my hubby lol!!!). I missed the gorgeous Alice yesterday.......cannot skip one day of blogging apparently!!
We had -11 and now a white world, wow almost Siberia in Holland!!!!

Hugs, Irene
