Good morning and happy weekend! A new challenge starts today over at Crafty Calendar, the theme is ' all about the boys' and we're sponsored this month by the fabulous Doctor Digi. I do love colouring these fun images...and there are so many brilliant ones to choose from! I used A Dunderton abroad, isn't he fantastic, a picture of sartorial elegance! I've coloured hm with my copics (as usual) ..loved colouring that shirt!...he's wearing his socks with his sandals 'cos he doesn't want to get his feet burnt...and a hanky to cover his head...can't be too careful in all that heat! The stamps I used, camera, smile' panel, ticket and passport stamp are all from a set of magazine freebies I've had for ages.
We have some lovely new teamies over at Crafty Calendar...they've made some wonderful cards to inspire you this month, as have the rest of the DT. I'm sure that all of them would be delighted if you paid them a please just click here to hop over and take a look, of course we would love to have you join us this month, so why not play along?

Incidentally, we are soooo close to our 1000 followers target at Crafty Calendar....and there is an amazing prize (it really is!) for some lucky someone when we reach it! If you're not already a follower then don't miss the opportunity to be in the draw!

Thank you for visiting today, have a wonderful weekend.

Fantastic image and superbly coloured, some fab embellishments and papers. Looks like he is ready for the Caribbean night on a P&O Cruise.
