What Are Little Boy’s Made Of!


Hi everyone and happy Saturday!

It’s time for another challenge with the “Crazy” gals over at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week it is my turn to host the challenge.

The month of May is important for me, as I am going to be a Grandma for the very first time *smile*. So I couldn't help but pop in a challenge relating to this event .... I am expecting a Grandson!

What are little boys made of?
Frogs and snails
And puppy-dogs' tails,
That's what little boys are made of.

So the challenge is to use this part of that well known children's nursery rhyme to create your card ..... it can be a boy card, something with frogs and/or snails, puppy dogs ... I think there is plenty of scope there for everyone.

For my card I decided to use a boy on my card and went with this cute digi image I found over on Mo’s Digital Pencil. I used my copic airbrush to create the clouds on my image.


I wanted to include a sentiment relating to growing on my card and found this one I used on the inside of my card online, I don’t remember now where I got, as I had so many windows open at the time. It reminded me of the beanstalk growing.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
