I like to ride my bicycle

Well as predicted it is pouring with rain so instead of having a lovely walk at the seaside we have been to Sainsburys and won't be leaving until later this afternoon just in time to have a meal and see the Cromer Pier Show. I don't expect to be wearing my heavy waterproof in July. Tomorrow more rain is predicted so a day at home is planned with a bit of crafting I'm sure.

My DT card today for Totally Gorjuss is for the One for the Boys challenge. We are sponsored by Simon Says an there are loads of boy challenges this week so I expect a lot of entries again. I know some people don't like making male cards but I love them as they make a change from flowers etc. I have used a fab image from Pollycraft which has been coloured with Promarkers and has glossy accents on his glasses. Papers are the old faithful Dovecraft again. I used my MS cherish punch and a Cuttlebug star die.

I am also entering these challenges:
A Gem Let's hear it for the boys
Send a smile for kids For the boys
Sweet Stampin' One for the boys
Charisma It's in the stars
Sunday sketch and stamp Fab sketch
Pollycraft The great outdoors
Crafty Creations Boyz to men
Creative Inspirations No flowers allowed
Simon Says Anything Goes
Ellephantastic Celebrations
Allsorts Free and easy
Ladybug Crafts Ink Summer Birthdays

Whew, that's more challenges than I normally enter with one card. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and hope the weather is better where you are.
