Happy Thursday, everyone….aah, we are almost to the weekend!  I am desperately trying to stamp some new samples for a big workshop I have this weekend, so I pulled out a new-to-me set, Boys Will Be Boys, and put the Freshly Made Sketches sketch to use:

I am also trying to use up some of the DSP I have because before we know it, the new catalog will be upon us with some new stuff!  I have to admit that I have been better this year at using mine up!  This pattern from Confetti Celebration is not one of my favorites, but the graphics in it seemed perfect for a boy’s card!  Here we go:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Boys Will Be Boys Stampin Up

I stamped the image in Basic Gray ink and colored it in simply with markers.  It looked a little plain, so I added some Candy Dots along the edge…much better!  My banner is from Maritime, and although I forgot to photograph it, I stamped the birthday sentiment from the set on the inside:


I am sure I could use this set for Cassidy, as she loves to play with blocks too…so it’s not just for boys! 

Cassidy was definitely into licking the cake bowl:


and the spatula:


And my mom always taught me “A good cook always cleans up her mess”, so she went to work washing up afterwards!  A little messy, but another good way to keep her occupied!



Enjoy your day!

    Looks like a yummy stuff she's licking there. So cute to see her cleaning up too.

  6. Oh what a perfect card for a child. Really adorable. And what a perfect little helper. Really sweet.TFS

  7. I love this, and I don't think I've ever noticed this set. I love the bright colors you've used for the blocks, and the dsp complements the stamps perfectly. The candy dots were a great finishing touch. It's always good to see you in the FMS gallery, LeAnne.

  8. Those block on your card are so cute, love this LeAnne! Love seeing little Miss Betty Crocker in her apron in the kitchen!

  9. Too funny! But she is learning good habits, too!
