Timbroscrapmania challenge

I thought i would give this new challenge blog a go, it is run by the very talented Gio, who did the sketch for this their 3rd challenge.  It sure looks like its gonna be loads of Fun.

So following their sketch i used my new Sherwood Edwin, isnt he a stunner, could steal any girls heart.  The dp is one of those that i have always loved its another Stacey Claire Boyd, and its dbl sided so it takes out the geuss work of co-ordinating your papers.  I added a little roll of aged paper to some hessian tied on the side and a couple of feathers to mimic his arrows.  This card is very simple, but i have a real problem with boy cards, am i the only one?


  1. You're definately not the only one who has a problem with boy cards!! I absolutely adore this one, he is just too sweet (but then he is from Magnolia, what can I say hehe). Your card is gorgeous my friend! Lotsa luv xxx

  5. Great coloring on Edwin. Love the feathers on this one. You are definitely not the only one who has trouble with masculine cards - but Magnolia makes it easier.

  6. Hey Paola

    I love your card, it gives me inspiration on what to do with my coloured Edwin. I love the rolled up message!

    Smiles to you

  7. Oh, he is adorable! Love that you carried the feather theme into your card too. As a mother of only a son I have problems with PINK girl cards. LOL

  8. Adorable. Your coloring compliments the paper beautifully.

  9. what a cutie he is for sure love your coloring and the sketch is pretty cool too !

  10. I struggle with boy cards too but this one is awesome! Your choice of papers and your coloring are just perfect. Beautiful card!

  11. He is delightful, Paola and the papers are scrumptious! Your coloring is so beautiful! Wow, I really like that little scroll you added. It gives the card such an old world feeling, just like Robin Hood!

  12. I really have no problems making boy cards, but there are not enough Edwin cards to be made.. I have so many cards I have made for little boys.. I have 5 grandboys so I have to make plenty.. I love making them... of course little girls are glitzy and fun, but boys can be fun and yours Paola, is fun with loads of happy things in it... and I think looking at it you have been making boy cards all your life. doesn't look like you had a problem at all... I love your colors and the feathers just make the card look like the Sherwood era! Stunning card...
    Hugs, Jean

  20. Hi Paola, I call them "the dreaded male cards"...LOL, so no you're not the only one. I think it's the embelishments I have trouble with--I just love flowers. I never know what to put on on a male card.
    You've done a terrific job on this one. Love the colour scheme and your lovely DP's. This adorable Edwin is beautifully coloured. And see... your embelishments are perfect for this card. Love the card.
