 Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you've had a good weekend.  I don't know about anyone else, but all the days seem the same to me at the moment.  

I'm here as it's the start of a new challenge over at The Cutie Pies and the theme is "The Boys are Back in Town" so as long as it's cute and boyish it'll be good.

I've made a card for my Grandson whose birthday is next month.  He's always playing on his games so I thought this image from Polkadoodles was very apt.  The card is larger than I would normally make, a C5 I think.  I have used lots of snippets from a Doodlebug pad on this one. The stripe in the middle was only about 3" long so I had to cut it in half to fit behind the image.  I've used star dies, a sentiment die and the little dots I made by cutting two small circles, embossing them and then adding glossy accents.

I hope you can join us for this first challenge of the year and we look forward to seeing your entries.
