Play Time

Good Morning.  Happy Tuesday.  I hope everyone is having a good week.  It is a busy week at work for me.  Yesterday I was on a conf call for 6 1/2 hours. The fall out from it means I will be busy until the next call on Thursday.

Today is a new Going Grey with Scrap-Creations challenge.  We have a special theme this week.  We have decided to make a card for a child. All you have to do is to make a card a child would like and use Basic Grey paper.   Kristen posted last week about 2 children who would have their days brightened by some cards.  Ethan who has cancer and is not doing well and Bella, who due to an infection lost all 4 of her limbs.  You can read about them on my earlier post.  I decided to use this image called I didn't do it from Karen's Doodles.  I won the top 3 on her challenge and decided to pick this digi stamp.  I think he is adorable and anyone who has had a puppy knows all too well what they can get in to.

The other wonderful challenges this card fits are:

Your Next Stamp Challenge - Buttons - I thought this card really needed something and I found this bone button.  Perfect!

Totally Gorguss - For the Boys - Boys and puppies...they automatically go together.

Just Us Girls - Digital - Karen's Doodles sell both Digi and Rubber.  Mine is the Digi version.

Sweet Stampin - Doodling - I had already layed the small layer when I decided to put the corners on.  I couldn't pull it off to put brads so I decided to draw the lines on them.  Don't know if I like it or not.  I also wanted to add color to the Play Time so I underlined it.

Create for Fun- Sketch.  I think this sketch worked great with my image and papers.

All Sorts - Lace or Buttons - I chose buttons.  I like my Bone button

Lexi's Creations - Something Old - My button, ribbon (both) and brads are all old. 

Magical Crafts - Male Card - I have alot of girl cards to send to Bella so I wanted to make a card to send to Ethan.  I thought a puppy card would be great for an 8 year old boy.

Cupcake Crafts - One for the Boys - I took this literally and since this card is for Ethan it fit the challenge.

Thank you for visiting me.  Thank you to everyone who leaves a comment.  I truly appreciate all of them.
