Well, just one boy in my case but the I ♥ PROMARKERS challenge #147 this week is One for the Boys....surely you must all be fed up of Christmas cards by now eh?  Please say you are!!! lol. The sponsor is again the super JOANNA SHEEN with a £10 spend for the winner.

It's not Aidan's birthday until the middle of January, but I thought I may as well get my card done now.

My papers are from a pad I've had for eons and never used, K & Co 'Itsy Bitsy Baby Boy'.  I don't even know why I bought it really as I don't do baby cards.  I suppose I could use it in some scrapbook layouts if I ever do some more tiny baby pages.  I have used Memory Box (corner), Cheery Lynn (fence) and Spellbinders (greeting mat) dies and a Martha Stewart Punch. The totally adorable image is from Teddy Bo and it was coloured, of course, with my Promarkers.  I made the number plate in Photoshop by taking a selection of the bumper from the main image, and typed using an outline font.  Then I distorted the text and outline slightly to make it all fit. It's stuck on the bumper with foam pads.
