... to make things for? I have 2 males in my household so as i have a couple of things to make for my nephews I thought I would pick their brains, I so wish I hadn't then I could pleed ignorance. I was making , well trying to make a couple of easter baskets for my nephews, mum is going to see them at easter so she said she would take down thier easter pressies so that meant I could do somethin alittle different to posting a gift voucher or similar. I have yet to buy the goodies to fill them but that will be the easy bit . I asked both son and hubby what kind of things boys would like on them, are things like flowers butterflies, bunnies and eggs acceptable. Although I asked separately I got the same look and response from both, just rabbits and eggs , flowers and butterflies and cute little chicks are so girly and not boy things. Boy did that scupper my ott plans so my bakets are plain and simple and I personalised with a name well saves arguments doesn't it.
I am entering these wee baskets into the challenges for eater at Sassy Designs who have an easter theme.
The pink elephant has a spring theme and they like things other than cards so I'll enter these there, hope easter comes under the spring umberella.
Cute Daisy May have an anything goes challenge theme so thats the third challenge for my little bunny baskets.
I have also made the boys an easter card each, and decided this cute little dragon a freebie from Dustin Pike would fit the bill of not girly. I have done them both slightly different so the boys don't squabble at seeing double. The first I originally coloured in bright green and mango for the challenge at passion for promarkers but yet again have missed the deadline . I haven't followed a set layout but instead much to my distress as I really feel guilty when I do distress have roughed up the edges so I can enter the challenge at YNS, which is distressing, if you get what I mean.
A spoonful of sugar has an easter theme challenge this week too so my little dragons can fly over there to enter their challenge.
Simon says has a challenge in honour of St. Patricks day and as my dragon's green I think he might join in the celebrations over there, and don't forget if you enter their challenge there are Lorraines, and Catt candies you can enter weekly and Domi's every month too thats loads of chances to win, just for entering a card.
Sophisticats has a theme of new beginnings and thats what easter is partly about and why all these new babies are associated with it, as flowers burst into life and spring wanders in, well usually unless mother nature plays tricks of course or you're in the southern hemisphere.Not sure about between the tropics oh I best stop before I tie myself in knots.I am entering my card as it has a newly hatched chick on it and easter is about new beginings.
Cup cake craft challenges have a green theme too St. Pat again and I think I will wind up my challenges with the citrus theme form CRAFT providing I've not missed their deadline. Have a fab day although its gone cloudy here now, not that that will bother the frogs I'm sure, thanks for popping by.
