A Card for a Boy

I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to create my weekly Whimsy card for this week...too much sickness has been going around our house for a few weeks now. I am hoping that everyone has recovered now. I apologize for not having done a whole lot of blog commenting in the recent weeks.

I was working on my new release cards yesterday (for next week's blog hops), when I decided to create this quick card that requires no coloring. As much as I enjoy coloring, I also love just stamped cards, and I think it'll make a great card for one of the kid's class mates.
Just did some stamping and added washi tape and some designer papers. The circle sentiment was popped up using dimensionals. 

Products used:
neenah &SU card stock, MME designer paper
washi tape
SU and distress ink


I am entering the card here:
Sister Act Card Challenge -  Anything Goes
Southern Girls -  Stars
Loves Rubber Stamps  - Anything Goes
Thanks so much for stopping by!
 Hope you have a wonderful and sunny weekend. 
I will be back with a new project on Tuesday for our Whimsy Stamps April release & blog hop.

I love this card. It is such a perfect male card. May I post a link to your card on my Manly Monday blog post? It's a post where I showcase masculine cards for my readers. Email me link to your card so I can find it at grohcm at gmail dot com. I will send you an email when the post goes live. Thank you.

What a great boy's card! I'm glad everyone is starting to feel better. It's no fun being sick when the weather is nice.

You certainly have been suffering in your household Ellie, I do hope everyone is on the mend.

Gorgeous card, looks very patriotic to me, I think it's the colours and banners but it's a great masculine card.
