Rocket Boy

Happy Tuesday, fellow bloggers! Another grey gloomy day here, which begs the question "Who stole Spring?!" Looking at the sky...anything could happen: rain, hail, blizzard, but one thing's for certain... there will be little or no sun today. However, over at the funny farm it's business as usual. In the conservatory where I sequester myself to indulge in my vice (several vices, actually) I've been busy, sedulously so, one might say!  I won't give away too much but here's a product of one vice: a card fashioned on this week's MojoMonday Sketch #238. I made this for my nephew who will be celebrating his 6th birthday in a couple of weeks. Really not sure what Nick's into these days, I just hope he has outgrown his passion for pink hand-bags! (I kid you not.) In the meantime I'm sending him an unequivocal masculine card to celebrate the man-child in him... and perhaps he can be persuaded to pick-up a jackhammer instead!

The papers are from "Blast Off" by Bo Bunny.
I stitched the panels down with bright orange floss. It is after all a bright and bubbly card for a youngster. Note: No pink!
The image and sentiment are form WMS "Half Pint Heroes"  - my trophy from WMSC #91. You can see my winning entry here. Back to the image - I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black and did some paper piecing, with some touch-up here and there with Promarkers. 
As always, plenty of foam tape action.
On the inside, I stamped another sentiment from the same stamp set. I love this set - it is chock full of images and sentiments for all the studs and studlings in your life. A whimsical masculine set sooo worth having.

Thanks for dropping by.  I'm going to stare at the sky for a bit. Those billowing dark clouds look like they are about to burst.

I might be too old for this kinda music but it 
seems to be growing on me... slowly. 


  1. It's adorable and perfect for any little boy!

  2. This is so cute!! Great papers!! I really like the inside sentiment!!

  3. I am sure this will kick the 'pink handbag' phase out! I am so impressed with the stitiching and the inside of your cards are always a joy to see-not a vice I would say more a paasion!!

  4. Too cute! Love the stitching on this one too! Thanks for the inspiration - I always need help with boyish/manly cards ;)
