Dutch Dare Challenge #30

Hi all

My oh my, third post today, anyone would think I have nothing better to do....well I have...housework...urrr housework....and let me see....oh yes more housework. Never mind, all that can wait...this is more important.

The Dutch Dare team have a green, blue and brown challenge this week. So as it's my Grandson, Taylor's 4th birthday this coming Saturday, I thought I'd do this one for him. "Love you Tay"

The image is from High Hopes, and it's one of my favourites for 4 year old little Grandsons. Look at that mischievous look on his face. I coloured with Copics again, and cropped the image using Spellbinders Nestabilities - Large Labels. These little dies are a godsend for cutting mats quickly. And the more I get, the more I want. I know there are some new ones coming up too.

I matted the image on to brown Bazzill which I had embossed with a Cuttlebug Embossing folder. The papers are old ones, I know one of them is from Chatterbox, but not sure about the others. The flowers are from Prima, (my favourite flower people) and the buttons from Doodlebug. The words are computer generated to add that personal touch. Lets face it, what child doesn't like to see their name on a card.

There's more detail on the inside too.

And finally a place for you greeting, and a place on the inside of the front flap to write your personal message...with lots of kisses too.
