Two for the boys

Hi girls
I've two cards for you this morning.  I'm being a lazy git and adding both my DT cards to the one post.

Over on Polka Doodles this week we're going all 
monochromatic, pick one colour hue and use as many shades of it as you like:)  Simples!!

I've gone for plain and simple this week.

The papers are from the new Sugar Plum Daisy CD , the banner and image are from Not for Girls CD.  How cool is this little fella with his shades?
Coloured with prisma pencils which I blended with mineral spirits and as it's CAS I only added a few little dew drops to embellish.
  Do pop over to the challenge blog for buckets of inspiration from my teamies and of course we'd love it if you played along too.
challenges for this one:
Creative Craft - anything goes
Come and Get It - masculine
Pan Patel UK - anything goes
Top Tip Tuesday - clean and simple

This next one is my Totally Papercrafts card and this week our theme is..


I needed a card for my cousins wee one who will be two next month so I killed two birds with one stone.  Don't you just love it when things work out for you:)

Again I've used papers from the  Not for Girls CD from Polka Doodles.  This image from Sparkle n Sprinkle is perfect for him too.  He loves nothing more than being at the allotment with his Dad getting stuck in there with his own wee plastic tools.  A real boy's boy already lol
Come and Get It - Let's hear it for the boys
The Craft Place - one for the boys
Crafty Cardmakers - one for the boys
Dutch Dare - birthday
Pixie Dust Studio - for the boys
Southern Girls - about the boys

So, that's my efforts for this weeks girls.  It would be lovely if you played along with both challenges but one will do:)  Have a smashing weekend
