Boys And Their Toys

Are you all ready for Monday?! It's another Marvelous Monday at Shelly's Images! Today's featured image is Conductor. You gotta love this sweet little boy and his train! This sweet image is on sale, today only, for a special price, in in the Shelly's Images store. While you're there, check out her other fabulous images, too! There are so many awesome things to choose from!

Of course, I had to go with a male card, for this image. The image, Conductor, is colored with Promarkers. I went pattern crazy on this one, with a mix of stripes and polka dots.. Then, I couldn't resist adding this houndstooth patterned paper. It reminds me of my grandma. She had a houndstooth patterned coat when I was a little girl. (Back then, I hated that coat! LOL) I used a corner punch by EK Success to punch the corners. The sheer brown ribbon is from my stash. The recycled buttons are from an old shirt that I threw away when I did some cleaning of the closets.
