Just a few buttons....

Hello! Hope you've all got the same gorgeous sunshine I've got! it's almost a shame to be spending time in my craft room.... Almost!

This is for my nephew, Gavin, who is 7 pretty soon. He absolutely loves dinosaurs so I couldn't really use any other stamp, could I? This is Monster Boy from Squiggle stamps but just for a change, I've paper pieced him - very fiddley trying to cut out the arm! I'm quite happy with the results though. The rest was coloured with my promarkers. The papers are Papermania Cool Tones Inspirations and then I've used some scalloped cardstock I've had for ages but never seem to run out of! And then I added a couple of buttons... and then a few more... and then I got a little carried away! Is it too much, do you think?

The challenges I'm entering it into are:
Whoopsie Daisy - Let's Paper Piece
Crafty Calendar - Birthday
Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations - Birthday

Nearly time for the school run... Have a fab day!

Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx
