Have you got One for the Boys!

Good morning blog friends

Hope its nice and bright and sunny where you are.  Its a lovely morning here- nice and bright and very still - I haven't poked my nose out of the door yet so its probably freezing but its just nice that we don't have rain, snow or ice!  

Another nice thing about today is its my birthday and as I worked Tuesday instead of my normal Thursday I even get the day off.  Only thing is at the moment I'm sitting here with my cards and presents that my family left for me and up until now I haven't opened them - somehow it feels a bit sad to open them all by myself - think I'll wait until they all come home tonight lol.

Anyway today is not all about me - its also challenge day over at Delightful Challenges and we have  a day about someone else instead its 
All about the boys!
Our challeng this week is 

One for the boys

Easter Derry from Digital Delights

We have a fab sponsor this week too 

Who are offering a prize of three sets from their store

I decided to make a Easter card for my little grandson with this cute little image 
called Easter Derry available here from Digital Delights
The sentiment is also from Digital Delights - its part of the Easter Sentiments set available here.

This is what I did...
Image - Easter Derry from Digital Delights
Coloured with copics and prismacolor pencils
Sentiments- Easter sentiments set from Digital Delights
Papers - Hopscotch by K and co
Card cut with spellbinders scalloped dies
eggs cut with spellbinders oval die
Butterfly die from Whimsy Stamps
Chick from the extras page in spring drop papers from first edition

OOPs!  I started in plenty time but now I'm late posting cos the phone kept ringing with my happy birthdays!! - I'm just waiting for Michael Caine to give me a ring  i feel sure he'll want to celebrate our mutual birthday today with a big celebration - only thin is he's 80 and might not want to share - what do you think - will he give me a call later!!!

Hope you have a lovely card to share with us at delightful challenges this week - I'm looking forward to
seeing it!
