Believe in Your Dreams!

Hi everyone! The design team at Lili of the Valley will be featuring boy themed projects this month on the Ideas to Inspire Blog.  If you are someone like me that struggles with boy cards, be sure to go and follow the Ideas to Inspire blog.  There will be lots of ideas! 

Here is a card using the absolutely adorable image "Aeroplane".  I think this little image can be used for all sorts of occasions.

I used some clouds from my cricut (Pooh cartridge) and added some glitter around the edges.  The travel postage stamps are from Whimsy - Vintage Travel and the papers are Maja Design.  The circle sentiment is called Dreamy Days from Lili of the Valley.  I have colored this cutie with distress inks.

I hope you like him!  I had a great time stepping out of my comfort zone and doing a boy card!  Of course, these boys from LOTV are so cute, they are a joy to work with!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!!!

Hugs, Dena

  16. Hi Dena,
    Thank you so much for doing a boys image card. I am a mother of 3boys and only 1girl and funnily enough, I have 4grandsons and 1granddaughter (and I'm a girlie girl too...oh love me...LOL!!)
    Anyway I digress (not unusual for me), I adore this card and although I don't have this image I do have a couple of boy images from LOTV and I love them. I don't know the name Maja Design but I will look it up and see if we can get some of their gorgeous papers here in the UK.
    Hope you're doing well. Regards Linda
