Attitude!

Alex started street dance this weekend, which by all accounts he loved.  They were taught a mini routine and told to give it lots of 'attitude' - this is his impression of attitude in the first pose of the routine!  It has been a nice weekend despite me being full of cold. Yesterday we were able to enjoy the sun in one of our local parks and then this morning Alex had a birthday party which was great fun.  Although it was raining this afternoon we had a mini rain walk before settling down for a rare 'movie' afternoon.
Crafting wise I had to make this card for the birthday boy.  I used a cute whiff of Joy stamp coloured with promarkers, cut out and edge embossed using an oval die and mounted on swiss dots embossed blue card followed by dark blue card.  The sentiment was from Speedy Fox.  I am entering this card into Less is More 'ovals', CCCB 'polka dots', and Speedy Fox 'favourite technique' (colouring with promarkers).
I also made this card following this weeks Unscripted sketch for my friends little girl who turns 5 later this week. I am also entering this into Simon Says stamp 'on trend' (hexagons), Penny's challenge 'pink and brown' (there are several shades of pink and brown used here - apologies for the photo colour reproduction), and PTW 'cute' challenges. That is all from me for now.  Have a great week everyone.
Love,
Caro
