I love a bargain!

Hi all,

I was in town the other day, spending my accumulated vouchers at The Works, when I stumbled upon the "reduced to clear" bin at Samuel Taylors in Leeds market. Inside those bins, I found half a dozen different La-La-Land stamps, all reduced to £2 each! It doesn't take a genius to figure out that they all came home with me! lol.

So here is the first of them. I really fancied making a boy's card, as it had been a while!

I coloured him with my Promarkers, and teamed him up with some MME papers - after fussy-cutting him first. I then added some buttons and star die-cuts with a LOTV "friend" stamped in the centre.
The picture has come out a little light... It's actually a lot more vibrant in person, but still... I'm quite pleased!

Expect to see a few more LLLC cards in the near future!

Also... I officially have over 100 followers! Welcome to everyone that joined recently, it's a pleasure to be sharing with you all! x

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenge:

ALBC - Man Up!

Have a great evening everyone!

This is a fab, fun card Sammy. You have matched your colours perfectly to your backing papers and I love that layout with the image off centre. Hugs x

What a fun card. It looks great Sammy. Brings back memories of the towel tied around the neck pretending to fly around the yard. Never tried the jump off the garage roof though. No Garage. There was a barn with stacks of hay. YUP! from the loft. Fun.
