Hello blog friends, thank you for the comments on my card yesterday and for your kind wishes.  I am now back to my perky self and had a really good night's sleep last night - thank goodness. 

Today I thought I would post a card I made back in June (pre-blog days!), I want to enter it into the Gem of a Challenge - A Boy Thing challenge.    The image is one from a Polka Doodles cd called Pretty Tuff. I have mentioned before that I am not really a cd person but I do love Polka Doodles and Polly Pickleberry cds.

I really enjoyed making this card and I do think that Nikki Hall is really talented.  She has a brilliant imagination and makes some wonderful pieces.
Ingredients :

8 x 8 Paper from my stash - unknown
Scalloped Circle dies
Oval die
Polka Doodles Pretty Tuff cd
That Special Touch ... mask
Sentiment and words printed from PC
Card Candi
I hope you like this card.  Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your comments.  Thanks once again for wishing me well, you are all so kind.
Big hugs to you.

  2. Hi Sue,
    what a delightful card. I really do like this. Ideal for a grandson. I have one who would just love that card. Good luck with the challenge.
    I feel our little family of newish blogs are just learning to fly, and very successfully to I may add.
    Does that make sense what I'm saying.
    Have a great crafty evening.
