Real Men Wear Orange!


Hey Everyone! I made this card yesterday with a few challenges in mind (see below).
It was nice to take a break from this card, to take my daughter to a soccer game a half an hour away, & i just wanted to show you a priceless photo. Nope, it's not of her scoring a goal, it's not her her head butting the ball.....it's a pic of my daughter, Hannah,  & my youngest son, Merik.



He was drinking water out of her cup but kept spilling on himself and down his shirt. OH how they both got a kick out of this! Thank goodness the weather was nice enough to do this! lol


Onto my card. Meet Edwin. He's also enjoying some sunshine.... in the meadow, just sittin' on a fence. The scene is from the Make It Crafty store called Daffodil Dell. I finally got to use my new wee butterfly punch to match Edwins best friend resting on his hand. Thus the sentiment in the pic below which is tucked in the top right corner.


And my completed inside.


The sun is shining here today, AGAIN.....two days in a row, that's almost a record. haha. But still kinda cool . Good enough for a  walk. Hope you all have a great day !

Challenges for my card:
Paper Play- summer citrus splash
Do U Stack Up- orange ( I understand if there is not enuf orange....heehee)
