Spoonful of Sugar challenge 62

Here's my entry for the Spoonful of Sugar challenge, which was a sketch this week. I've used an image from Digistamp Boutique and had my first go at 'distressing' with my new distress inks. I've coloured with promarkers as usual though. For a change I'm quite happy with how this turned out, although I'm not sure about the sentiment, maybe it should have been mounted instead of stamped directly onto the paper.

  2. Ooo very very nice, Lisa! This would be a perfect 1st birthday card for my little boy, Morgan. His party is going to be a little pirate theme :)

  3. Great boys card. Males of any age are so difficult. I have a husband, son and son-in-law plus 3 teenage nephews. Nightmare! Boys are too old for lots of things but too young for others! Girls are much easier. This card is so cute and the papers and colours are just perfect.
