More Hugs

I am so loving this idea of sending 'Hugs' and as my  my 2 youngest nephews both live quite a distance away I don't get to see them very often and I'm quite sure they wouldn't really want physical hugs unless on their terms as they are 7 and 9 yrs old. I thought this and one I still have to make would be a hug they wouldn't mind receiving.

I made this for the younger of my 2 nephews and as his favourite colour is blue what other colour could it be, he had good taste in colours as many of you will know blue is a colour I tend to favour too.

I used this fab Sugar Nellie image available from Funky kits and it just so reminds me of my son when he was little and in fact many of the young boys who would cling to a soft toy whilst in hospital from my nursing days, they always looked so vulnerable when , when their mums were there they would be real tearaway characters.

I also decided to have a play and make a side step card after seeing one on the Penny black blog hop, not that my decoration fully utilises the style but I don't think more decoration would enhance the sentiment of the card and would probably be lost on a 7 year old.I coloured the image with Promarkers and the die cut Hugs which was a candy prize from Susie at die cut dreams. The other wording was a sakura glaze pen and the little hearts a paper punch, not much more to this card really.

I would like to enter this Hug into the following challenges:-
