Cosmo Cricket - Lil' Boy

It's always fun to go back and use an old favorite scrapbook product that you may have forgotten.  You know.....the one in the lower drawer underneath some other stuff you've been meaning to re-organize and try to use.  I remember when I first bought this Lil' Boy line by Cosmo Cricket.  I just HAD to have it ALL.  I made several layouts with it for my son, as well as several cards.  I came across it this morning while looking for a little boy's Birthday card that I needed for a party we were headed to this afternoon.  I sat down and made this card in about 5 minutes (we were running late).  I also like using square-shaped cards when I will be hand-delivering a card/gift.  If you mail them, square cards required two stamps.  So this worked out perfectly.  We had a fun time.  My son ice skated while I sat with some other Moms from our church.  That nice cold ice arena was a VERY welcome break from the Las Vegas heat; which is still very near 100 most days.
 

I'm entering my Cosmo Cricket Li'l Man card into the following challenges:

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by.

  1. Karen, this is one incredible card for such a short time! Love the ribbon accents you used and wonderful batter image! Glad you got a reprieve from the heat! You could always come and visit me, it gets down to freezing at night and around 55 during the day. Nice and cool for fall!
