A spoonfull of sugar dt

Hi there blog hoppers, this week on A spoonfull of sugar we are looking for something for the boys.  Yeah i can see you all scratching your heads, well it is after all a challenge blo, but hopefully if i dont inspire you enough you can head over to the challenge blog and see what the other fab dt has come up with
I am certainly challenge by boy cards, since i love to add lots of THINGS to my cards, i didnt have a clue what i could add to my boy card.  once i had decided to use this cutey from a local South African stamp company, the rest kind of just happened.  Since most of the boys go fishing in the summer i decided to use pinwheels on my card, added a fish charm to a little length of chain, used some stitching aroun my card, the faux kind i think i mentioned in an earlier post that i am terrified of using my new sewing machine for cards in case i gotta run soemthing up for my girls.  I put some cotton through the centres of my buttons and stuck them to the middle of the pinwheels and there you have it, VOILA!  Oh my almost forgot, not that you actually see much of the dp, but its an old one from daisy d's.
