Embellishments - spellbinders cross die, peel offs
Medium - he is coloured with promarkers

I would like to enter this into
Crafts and me - punches and die cuts

Totally Papercrafts - no pesky girls allowed
Allsorts - card for man or boy
Lollipop Crafts - just for him


Finally getting to do a post. Had been a bit off colour all weekend, flu symptoms but not the flu if you know what I mean. A bit of a chesty cough now but certainly have a bit more energy. I also had bad news over the weekend as a friend of mine lost is wife very suddenly. She took a heart attack while driving and died instantly. She was only 52! So hard for the family:(
My card today is another Holy communion one. Nearly finished with these for this year. I had ordered myself this gorgeous cross spellbinders die set from Pink Gem and couldn't wait to get using it. I just love the cross it makes and that is just one of five!
We have had a day of low temperatures and hail stones the size of golf balls! Showers were something else but then it is MAY!
Welcome to my newest follower Shirley-Anne!

Pinky, what a lovely card. Sorry to hear you haven't been well but what shocking news. Unfortunately it's the sudden death that is hard to cope with - I only know too well what the last 11 months have been like since my mum died 61. I thought 61 was no age but 52. Sending you lots of cyber hugs to keep you going so you can support your friend's husband and his family. Kym xxx

That Spellbinders die iss ideal for your Communion cards and that little chap looks so angelic. Super card - love the bp too.
So sorry to head about your friends wife. So young too. You just never know what's round the corner for any of us.
We had a hail storm here this afternoon - the hail wasn't as big as golf balls but it was pretty white out there for a while.
