Some Boy Cards

Hello again, I've a few boy cards to share with you this time.

 This horse is from Beccy's Place. I coloured it with my pens after cutting it out on the Robo. I also cue the mat and used some scraps of leather style paper behind the mat. I used my Vera Mark pen to go over the pole and the metal work on the tack which I embossed with gold embossing powder.

 I found this fab T shirt card on Shirley's website as a freebie. She is so generous to share these files with us all. I cut this from black card, the trim from whit and and a scrap of embossed white behind the star.

 After making the black card I decided to do a green one as well. I had coloured the puppy a while ago but hadn't made him into a card. I cut him out and popped him on the front of the T shirt. The trim is scarp white coloured with Promarker.

The is a close up of the puppy I love his cheeky face. 

I've seen these box cards all over the place lately and decided to have a go as well. I did 'cheat' and got the Robo to cut it all and then I just stuck it all together but I really like the effect and can see a few more like this being made. 

This last one is a simple birthday card. I cut the little robot out and the balloons and just stuck them together.

Not huge amounts of colouring or any fancy cards this time but sometimes for boy cards less is more. I am entering these cards in the following challenges:

They are lovely but I do like your merry go round horse that would make a lovely new baby or christening card too.
