Grandson's Birthday card

I get so challenged when it comes to making cards for the opposite gender! lol I guess that is one reason God has blessed me with nine grandsons which a good share of them will be celebrating their birthdays soon. You will probably get tired of seeing birthday cards for boys when you come visit!

I made this cute little cowbear (Cuddly Buddly) for one of the little men. I am entering it in several challenges too.

My Time to Craft has a challenge for "kids".

Pollycraft's challenge is to distress somehow on you creation. I am new to distressing and have not really done it all that much so this was a fin challenge.

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday and Creative Card Crew both have the challenge this time is for "celebration" and I am sure we will celebrate this birthday! lol

Practical Scrappers challenge was to use inks and chalks. I colored the image with chalks and you can see the ink I smeared all over everything!

Inspirational Card Sketches is where I got the inspiration to start this card from their sketch this week! I did rotate it and moved the the embellishment to a different side.

The Crazy Challenge is a new one for me this time. They are challenging us to use three of something. I chose to use three charms.....pistol, handcuffs and the little star hanging on the cuffs.

Allsorts challenge is to make something for men or boys.

One Stop Craft Challenge is "Sew Simple" and I wanted to enter this card to let you know that I really did mean to sew it all crooked and uneven! lol

Thank you for stopping by. I have asked God to bless each one who does! Now off to start yet another male birthday card! Yikes!
