Bedhead Birthday

How about something sweet for this week’s A Day For Daisies Challenge?  

The Challenge is to use 3 different patterned papers...


These images from the Oh Boy collection are so sweet!  With two boys (well...one’s almost a man), and nephews around I have lots of use for these.  I thought I’d do it up great with some fun plaids and checks....perfect for the boy theme.  And I tried to give him the look of a ginger bedhead with some sunkissed skin, carting around that cute kitty.  I love how my boys would get such brown necks over the summer from playing outside.  



This is this weeks’ Deconstructing Jen Sketch, and I accented it simply with some buttons and twine and the sentiment from an older SU set.  



Check out with the rest of the ADFD ladies have for you today!  And be sure to play along!

Just a beautiful, sweet card, this image is truly angelical, love the way this little tike is holding that kitty.
Can you tell me where the pattern paper came from? it's so beautiful.
Thank you for sharing.

Oh, how sweet, for sure! I love all those boyish plaids and the buttons. Of course, the image is darling and your paper piecing really pulls it all together.
