Max/Ben does Papertake Weekly

Just a quickie from me, I'm not feeling so good. If anyone read my post from a week last Sunday, all I will say is, now the boot is on the other foot! Anyway, at least it is not stopping me from cardmaking, so here's my entry for this weeks lovely sketch over at Papertake Weekly.

There is not much to tell you about the card. You'll see in a minute why I just had to get this image when I saw him & why I think he would be better named Ben. He is one of the new Twinkle Tots from the Greeting Farm. The papers are Oh Baby! Boy from Basic Grey. I've had them some time!! The corners are made with those fake brad thingies. I still can't remember what they are called. He's coloured with Promarkers. Couldn't be simpler!

Now, you're about to see why, I think the stamp should be called Ben. I have to say, I took this picture this morning & it is not staged in any way!

What do you think? Ben is 4 next month & I made this card for his birthday. I could use it for my other son, Jack, who is also completely mad for video games. It drives me to despair, I wish they would read more & play with their other toys. Lord knows they have enough!! They take after their Dad in this respect!
Anyway, better go, I need to go to the supermarket. Food shopping, the last thing I feel like doing right now! Hope you are all in better shape than me!
Thanks for looking,
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
