One for the boys...

Hey, friends!

I have another boy's card today. I'm not a "specialist":)) at these as I prefer to have lots of flowers on my cards but I must keep in mind that there are just as many boys in our lives than girls:). Plus, there are so many gorgeous stamps out there for boys! I really had a hard time choosing one for this week's challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil  where the theme is "Let's hear it for the boys". I had to write down the exact title because I just love the way Pat puts words together!:)
So I "turned upside down" Mo's shop to find a boy's stamp (not that I wouldn't already have lots of them:)). That reminds me to tell you, if you don't know this already, there's a cute 1 dollar digi for a limited period of time. All proceeds from this stamp while it is on sale will be donated to help the people of Japan. You can find it here.
Eventually, I went for Tolerance, one of the cutest, most hilarious of Mo's stamps I wanted to buy for a long time. Just look at the expression on that cat's face! It seems to have taken it lying down, love or punishment, who cares:))!

Recipe for my card:
Stamp: Mo Manning - Tolerance
Coloring medium: Promarkers
DP: Echo Park- A Walk in the Park
Misc: Ribbon from Papermania, flower made with a Sizzix die, buttons, staples, distress ink,  lace from stash
Sentiment: computer generated

Soooo cute! I also find it really hard to make cards without flowers, just love putting flowers on every item I make. You made a lovely card without using flowers (almost no flowers anyway).
Hugs Linn
