it's a boy!

Happy June!



Check out the fab sketch by our own NinaB!


Here's how it inspired me:


I used







This is going to someone that is going to be a Great Grandpa!  Now how cool is that?

I hope that he doesn't think it is too girlie...that's how I am...flowers are for everyone!  I'm not a trucks kind of girl when it comes to baby boys.  Pretty sure that my boy never wore anything with trucks or airplanes...unless it was perhaps a gift.  He wore alot of orange and tie dye:)  The kid moved f-a-s-t and I needed to be able to spot him in a quick second if he made a run for it...seriously.  Although he isn't necessarily that way anymore, he still makes me wonder how much energy one individual can have.  I know that as he gets older, he'll use it for good and not evil.  Anyone that has met my boy knows how much of a whipper snapper he is and I for one cannot wait to find out what kind of contribution he will make to the world.

You may enter as often as you like, but we must be able to see the sketch in there somewhere. You are free to flip it or turn it as you like!

The bkgd paper is so subtle I hadn't noticed the flowers!! I do love the colours though and the banners...who said you couldn't use flowers for boys anyhow!!
My lad is a complete whipper snapper too and I wonder how his life will turn out :0)

So sweet of course, Amy, I love the colors you used, and it is not too girly! Congrats to grandpa! Have a wonderful day!

I seriously felt like you were describing my oldest. We still reckon he's a bit of a flight risk! And as a babe & toddler (walking at 8 months? unfair baby advantage!) he was always in overalls & bright shirts, for easy spotting & a handle to grab him by. lol
I love the idea of celebrating the grandparents (or greats, in this case) - it's a pretty big deal for them too! And I think it's a great card - because yep, flowers are for everybody. And love that ribbon!

Rose said...

i think it is perfect for a boy!!

Ann said...
