Oh Boy....

Kia ora koutou

BOY, n:  1.  Noise with dirt on it....My two youngest boy's fit this description to a T, lol.

.....One of the lovely ladies in my Monday Madness Card Class, asked if we could do 'boy cards', hence the  title.  I love a challenge, and designed two boy cards for my card class tomorrow - pictures are near the end of this post :)

....My last post 'Frantic February and Finicky Frocks' has carried on true to form - I have been busy with Census work, made a couple more variations of the origami dress (finicky frock) cards and last Monday Madness class we worked on Finicky Flowers (miniature origami roses).  Once again, I am very proud of the ladies, they all had a go at making miniature origami roses - sterling effort ladies!  The finished product was absolutely stunning, well worth the effort.

Origami Rose Cards

This card was inspired by a fabulous card I spotted on Pinterest designed by Doris Kroh. I made a few changes, very happy with the results.  I used Stampin' Up!'s large label punch to give the table a 'Queen Anne' design look and with the cut-out, I re-inserted it through the top-side of the label punch to make the bottom look the same as the top - flipped it over, 'voile' a wonderful picture frame :)
You could go to town embellishing the table top - trinkets, tiny photo frame, mirror, flowers, etc...I love it!!!
Stamp - Petite Pairs
Ink - Basic Black
Card - Whisper White, Garden Green, Kaisercraft: Base Coat - Weathered (both sides), Kaisercraft: Miss Match - Odd, Vellum, Red/pink Printer Copy Paper

Cottage Window

A simple beautiful card.  The window frame die used on this card - OMG! Endless possibilities of fabulous creativeness, love it!!!

First sample card, didn't make the cut - not enough background paper and silver brads for the class.

A Couple More Finicky Frocks

Oh Boy

....Tomorrow's Monday Madness Class is in for some boyish fun!  Two cards - my goal was to create a card for a younger boy and one for an older boy - I think (hope) it was achieved, as my mum would say...'The proof is in the pudding'.

Monster Truck

I designed this card for my last baby - Bronson, my monster truck loving boy, he turned four years old on Friday.  Absolutely enjoyed making this because I knew how much he would love having a 'monster truck' card, and the look on his face when he received it was priceless, reinforces my love of card-making :)

Kiaora my clever 'arty farty' daughter, just lovin your blog, your cards so finiky and creative made with heaps of love, I love Bronsons card too, of course he would luv it its so 'him'. The worlds your oyster (woops thats another theme) everyday happenings gosh so much to draw from. Im just thinking of my 3 sisters Shona, Yvonne and Liz who are all nona-in-waiting for their moko. What sort of cards do you give to the new nona 'you make me smile' 'Its raining boys' (Shona and Eve) "thank heaven for little Girls" (liz) 'Precious Cargo landed safely" etc etc
Arohanui your Mama
