Good Morning to all. How did everyone like last week's challenge of everything goes? Those are the best challenges of all. Hope you all had a great week. We are getting ready for track season. Signing up, buying shoes, headbands and of course the  physical. This is adding up real quickly. She couldn't find some nice lower costing shoes. She has to pick ones that were over $80.00. I hope her feet don't grow for a couple of season's. Soccer practices are over until the summer which is great. I won't be trying to run her from one sport to the next. I do get a little break because her practices are right after school and all I have to do is pick her up. This is going to be weird getting use to. Well, there's my little tidbit of my life so let's get to the challenge at hand.

For some reason I like doing cards for boys and babies. Having a grandson gives me a lot inspiration. My boys do to. I remember things that they did when they were very young. Milk Coffee Stamps is our great sponsor for this week's challenge. They have the cutest images of boys and in all there other categories. I chose Soccer Boy from their boys category. I chose this one partly because of my daughter. I have a lot of embellishments and stuff for the card from making things for her. How lucky can I be. Here is the prize for the winner of this week's challenge

3 Digital Stamps
The Winner's Choice

Let me show you my card for the soccer boy.

I did have a hard time to make the soccer ball to turn out right. I looked at all her pictures and still couldn't get it to look right. My husband did remind me that not all soccer balls are the same so I went with this one. I did make the tips of his hair look like they were bleached out to match the style these days. Let me give you the items that I used for this card. It's not a long list.

Cardstock -- Close To My Heart
Paper -- From My Paper Stash
Embellishments -- Dress It Up
Font -- Rockwell Extra Bold
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

I can't believe that I'm done with my post already. This went by real quick. I want to remind you again to go to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog to add you cards about young boys. While there, our design team made cards that will give you some inspiration. Hope the rest of your day is great and your week is wonderful.
