Debbie said...

Really lovely card Vicky. I am making a boy card next for my mum to give her grandson, using my brand new Edwin.
I love the Cricut Stars, love my cricut machine, don't use it on cards tho just my scrapbook pages, but do use it all the time, it's never put away!!

Craftdee said...

Lovely card Vicky, really like the colour combo, and who could not like that sweet image. I know what you mean about your cricut, I have a Silhouette that sits in the back room...not even in my craft room, and it hasn't even done anything wrong (more operator error than anything else, lol) every time I buy a new set of Nesties, I have to block out the picture of the lonely Silhouette ;-)

Marianne's Craftroom said...

Gorgeous boy's card. Love that nesties, another must have methinks. Love stars and buttons for boys cards. Marianne x

Lynne said...

Awww so cute, and those papers are fab, I like Nitwit a lot. I have done the same as you but with a Cinch, I bought it and only used it a couple of times. I've stuck it in a cupboard so I don't get reminded of my error the whole time, lol.

thanks for the info about scrim....always amazing what crafters can find a use for! CoB

Jules said...

Oh Vicky .. .. this is gorgeous. Love it!!!

Well if your day went anythng like mine you must have got lots of crafting done yesterday because the weather didn't really improve enough to do anything else (not that a person would want to do anything else but craft LOL!!).

That nestie is the perfect shape and size for your perfectly coloured image.

Love Jules xx

Anna-Karin said...

Hi sweetie,
Cute image and you have coloured perfect. I like the stars/buttons.

I´m home again. We drived over 500 miles. Austria was beautifull - the mountins and the houses with all the flowers. We came to Copenhagen after they had have the worst rainweather over 30 years. The motorway was cloesed so the the traffic/we stod still for over 3 hours and the traffic jam was several miles I suppose. We have to drive round Copenhagen and over the bridge to Sweden.
Take care
