Hello!!! No you're not hallucinating, this is REAL.. a SJ blog post mid week!. Take a moment to recover, I'm taking a little moment myself.. haha.. at the fact that I manged to sit down and make a little card, that this little card is for a boy (that's right, not a scrap of Pink, glitter or ribbon to be seen ANYWHERE!!), AND, that I'm actually posting it here on my blog for you to see.

We had a little birthday party to go to on the weekend and do you think I had ONE card suitable for a little boy in my stash? NOPE not ONE, not even one that could be tweaked to be suitable for a lil' man. So, after panic set in, I managed to calm down enough to remember that I got THE perfect little man stamp set at Regionals this year and here, my lovely blog friends is the final result of all that PANIC, haha :-

 I've use the FTL164 as my layout, absolutely PERFECT and an AWESOME layout that I will most definately be using again SOON!!!

The stamp set is Under the Big Top and I've stamped the clown image from it (minus the little sentiment that is with it) in Stazon Ink on Water colour paper, then coloured it using various Ink Pads (Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight) and for this image I opted to use a Blender Pen rather than my Aqua Pen, purely because there are too many little spaces to colour :)

The DSP is some retired Stampin' Up! goodness, I can't think of the name of it at the moment, and the clown image was cut out using my Decorative Label Punch with a splash of Wasabi cardstock behind it.

That's pretty much it. I hope you like it, be sure to leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
