Boys will be boys ...

...whatever their age.

Good morning one and all and as I write the sky is clear blue and the sun is shining though we are forcast more heavy showers(that we really need) and my poor beautiful peonies are getting totally battered.

Another fortnight passed, where does time go, but that means time for another challenge at Penny's paper-crafty challenges. We had loads of entries for here comes summer, you are all so obviously looking forward to the sunshine we hope to get and Courtney is going to have one hard choice. Appologies to all those I didn't manage to comment on but blogger is still playing silly and on some I just go around in a sign in circle when trying to comment, funny on some there is an added option to sign in with name and URL but not all, no consistency but appologies anyway and just to say comment or not we do visit you all.

Our challenge this time is another goodie that you can all get your teeth into , so to speak we are celebrating 'best friend day'. Have to say I'm not sure if it's an official day world wide or just in the USA . If I look on the W.W.W. I find lots of answers today is best friend day but apparently the UN declared July 30th international day of friendship,  in many parts of india and other countries friendship day falls on the first sunday of august and in some spanish and portuguese speaking countries it is celebrated in april.Talk about confusing, but I guess if you have a special friend its good to celebrate that friendship several times a year so who cares what the official date is.

For my card I used a LOTV image well they are just so cute, my son saw me colouring it and asked if he could have it as a fathers day card for his granddad. I told him it was for best friends day and he said that was fine as the his granddad was his best friend (well one of them, the other is a girl called Becky) and he said the image reminded him of them sharing cookies and sweets, I suppose thinking about it they sometimes do look like these boys especially when they sit there whispering you just know they are up to something.

I coloured my image with promarkers and used a punch on the k and co papers for extra interest and added some candt to the corners, my son approved as he said they looked like extra cookies, though I never thought that myself. The sentiment is also LOTV which I stamped in blue ink. Quite a quick card to make and truth be known not my original DT card either. My internet being down all last week I made all my card and I put it somewhere really safe, so safe that when the internet came back I couldn't find it and had to make another one really quickly, and I still haven't found it yet, no doubt it will eventually turn up but still my son likes this one so at least it will get used.
