One for the Boys

Did you think I forgot about my challenge for myself? 

For my ABC Cricut challenge today, letter 'B', I chose to use Boys Will Be Boys.  I got this cartridge to scrap some pages of my boys and have to admit shamelessly that I haven't even used it yet!!!  But for today I just whipped together a quick card.

Also, Really Reasonable Ribbon is having a challenge #20 'One for the Boys'.  All you have to do is make something using the theme and, of course, ribbon!  Easy, Peasy!

Here's what I came up with:

I just got my Papertrey Ink order in and HAD to play with one of my new stamp sets!
Another goal of mine:  to use all my new sets at before the next release!
I keep ordering every new release but have so many I haven't used!

 Rocket was cut at 3 3/4".
I painted the blue with Iridescent Medium to give it a metallic look.
Card Base: SU Brillant Blue 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:  White 4" X 5 1/4"   stamped with Brillant Blue
Other Cardstock / Paper:  Real Red, Real Red DP
Ink: Brillant Blue
Stamps:  PTI Background Basics: Twinkle, Tiny Treats: Birthday
Accessories:  SU Polka Dot Real Red, Iridescent Medium, Cricut & Boys Will Be Boys cartridge, Rhinestones and buttons

Thanks so much for visiting me while I am
Hiding in My Craft Room!

Tomorrow (if I get time!) I'll be using a cartridge starting with the letter 'C'.

I'm thinking about revisiting Cindy Loo????


  1. Laurie......I first saw this on the Showcase thread for Twinkle.....and I just simply love it!! Great use with that rocket.....It's perfect!

  10. What a great little boy card! I love how you used the PTI stamps with the Cricut robot.

  11. I love this card! I have this cart as well and I think a great title would be..."I only have eyes for you!" P.S. I had to pin this! Thanks for sharing; it helps to see projects that others are making with their carts.

  12. Ooops! This comment was meant for the little monster card with all the 'eyes'. LOL. I like this one as well.
