Boys & Toys!

I hope everyone had a good weekend? Just usual family activities here, but nice to have the extra day to relax. Problem is that I keep thinking today is Sunday now - I'll be confused for the rest of the week!
Just wanted to share a card I made with a LOTV stamp that I bought recently. It was one of those stamps that I kept seeing on their website and started to really yearn for! Probably a worrying sign when you begin to put rubber stamps on a wish list! Anyway, I finally got him and thought I'd make this card up with a couple of challenges in mind.

The stamp is called 'Sailing Boat' and he just looks so excited about taking his boat for it's maiden voyage! 
I've coloured him with promarkers and prisma pencils and used distress inks around the edges of all the papers. 

The backing paper is from Basic Grey 'Hopscotch', which is double sided and I have to confess I originally bought for the other side, but now really like this pattern! The grey is AmericanCrafts and the turquoise blue from my stash which I've embossed with the Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots'. The metal 'wheel' is from my stash from so long ago that I've forgotten its origins, and the ribbon from my stash and buttons from the bottomless button box! The sentiment is from LOTV. 

I'm entering this in:
Lilis Little Fairies - Anything Goes

Back soon, Kim x
