Morning all!

Looks like another miserable day out there, so me thinks I stay in and play instead!! Must say I love making my little creations, but it's starting to feel like groundhog day and I'm starting to feel a little fed up, if you get my drift :o(  But I should not complain, there is a lot worse out there and I'm just feeling sorry for myself, so I am gonna give myself a little kick up the backside and stop being sooooo silly!!

Right that's me told off, onto today's card and I have made a boy card for a change!. It's lovely seeing all those gorgeous cards with little hearts, but there is a point when you need a change lol! This cool dude is from the fab Sugar Nellie and I have used one of their boy Sassy's for a nice change, very simple layout and I really enjoyed making this one :o)

This dude is going into the following challenges :-
Create 4 fun # 6 ~ Fab Sketch

Laid Back Dude ~ Simply Sassy ~ Sugar Nellie

Hi Vicky

If the sun was shining you wouldn't feel quite so bad .. .. it puts a different slant on the day.

Hopefully it will brighten up a bit soon .. .. and your mood along with it!! In the meantime keep kicking yourself up the backside LOL!!!

Love your card Vicky .... great colours and papers. I particularly love the pattern on the circle!!

I hope your day improves.

Love Jules xx

Oh no don't feel bad...We all go through the "boaring" mode we think we get stuck in a rut, but to me you do what suits you. I sometimes change my style and don't like it, end up going back to it. You do the most gorgeous cards, so please don't worry.
Do you ever get to sell any? You should try to, people wood buy them. Try a coffee morning or a Mother and toddler. What about having a word with the wrvs in the hospital where you work, they may be up for selling some for you, you could give them a donation for doing so....just a thought.
This is an adorable boys card. I have just used Edwin for a change, but love my "girly" cards!!
