No Designer papers at a Creative Romance

For my Crafts too post please scroll down!....

Hi everyone, wow I've been on my blog a lot this week haven't I?! Don't be thinking I'm gonna make a habit of it though lol! I am hoping that the kids will join in with me for some crafty time during the summer holidays but my mojo does tend to wander off when I am getting drinks, food, refereeing arguments etc!
We have a CHALLENGE over at A Creative Romance today and I do mean a challenge! it's no DPs!
I actually dreaded the idea of doing this but then I thought, how often do you actually see the pretty papers on my card?! I have an uncanny way of covering them all up with embellies so I just figured I would use only plain cardstock and do the same as I normally do!
This card is for Caleb's teacher and I'm quite sad that she is leaving to go to another school as she was a fab teacher albeit a temporary one. I had to make it using a boy image (Caleb would have gone crazy otherwise!) but as it was for a female teacher I could still go a bit girlie with my embellies, though Caleb would not have had any pink on the card!
I have used plain white, blue and kraft cardstock, my butterfly is from little snippets, my wooden jigsaw pieces from crafty embellies and my flowers and jute from WOC.
My image is a super cute Bugaboo one, perfect for teacher cards and I have coloured him with prisma pencils. My cute little letters are adornits.
Do check out the fab inspiration from the rest of my teamies and there is a fab prize from Little darlings up for grabs if you join in with us!
Thanks so much for coming by my blog!
Big hugs
