Joshua's birthday card






















Our beautiful youngest grandson Joshua was one year old this week.  I found this digi stamp by Mo Manning called "Tolerance", which I coloured with copic markers, although I'm still not happy with the hair colouring, and need lots more practice.  My son's family have a ginger cat called "Dizzy" (for obvious reasons), so of course, I had to go with that colourscheme.  The papers are from Nitwit "Some Assembly Required", and these are very useful generally for male projects.  It's quite a simple layout, so I just used some card candy, and a computer generated sentiment to complete the card.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
http://foreverfriendschallengeblog.blogspot.com/: use an animal and a sentiment
http://www.southerngirlschallenge.blogspot.com/: one for the boys
http://cardsformen.blogspot.com/: make us laugh
http://craftybootschallenges.blogspot.com/: use an animal

Thank you so much for visiting my blog, and viewing my card.  If  you leave me a comment I'll know you dropped by, and I can pop by your blog too, and see what lovely projects you've posted in blogland.

xx Jill
