Another Dunkin' Card!

Hi, and welcome!

Hope you've all had a lovely start to the weekend.....very hot and sunny here, so I'm NOT pleased!  Red-faced  and over-heated is not a good look on me, lol.

You may remember me mentioning, a while a go that I had four grandchildren who would turn 8 years old, this year, and that would mean that each of them would be baptised, if they so chose.........

Well, the first of the four is ......drumroll.....William!!

His birthday was last Friday, and he was baptised on Tuesday.....yay, William!
I made one of these cards for another little boy (Connor), in our ward at Church, back in March, so that was a dry run, heehee.......

And here is William's card............

This was a happy occasion, so I wanted the card to reflect that, and keep it bright and simple.....the males in my family don't do "fussy", remember..........

Again, I used the fantastic digi that Nikki over at made for me....she's a star!
Everything is coloured with change there, then, lol.......

The DPs are DCWV (I think).....and I love the bright colours........and the sentiment came with the above digi.........perfect!
All I did was colour and then ink around in ice blue, then stick it on a scrap of red card........

The buttons are from my stash, and I threaded them with orange embroidery floss, and stuck 'em on with pop dots.......lovely an' bright.........

A larger button, threaded the same way, and stuck onto a yellow paperclip, (got a HUGE tub of coloured ones from Staples for 99p....bargain)..........

I handed William his card, along with the latest in the Beast Quest series  of  "monsters and aliens", and got a polite "Thank you, Grandma", then the card was hurriedly passed to his Mummy, while he whooped and wowed over his set of books..........oh, well.....there ya go.....he IS only 8........and male!
I enjoyed making it, anyway........

Thanks for lookin'......

Anything goes
Clean and Simple
Male card- no flowers
