Weekend Productivity

If you are looking for the Character Cafe Blog Hop, scroll down. Enjoy the other cards on your way!

Crafty Ho's Challenge theme this week is "Fun in the Sun". This Bugaboo image is so typical of little boys (and sometimes little girls) during the summer as they explore the world. There is a certain fascination with bugs. The bug paper is from HOTP. I added the dragonfly brad. The sentiment refers to "dirty face" and "cut on his finger". A good description of any boy who has been out of the bathtub more than 10 minutes.

Pear Tree Designs is sponsored by Character Cafe this week.The challenge is to have an animal on the card.  I fell in love with this Character Cafe image (and the sentiment) as soon as I saw it. Character Cafe has a special on this week: 6 images for $5. This one of my 6. "You're not going to make me light them ALL are you?" is so light-hearted. The "Happy Birthday" box is from another digital image store: Soft Pencil. They have several sentiments available in English, Spanish and Dutch.

As always, any cards not already in mind for a personal friend or relative is sent on to OWH.
