Boys Will Be Boys

     Hello everyone, I am so sorry my post have been so far apart but I have had some medical issues that have prevented me from posting.  I none the less have been making cards but have not had the energy to post so I thought today I would post what I have been working on.  Little boy cards are always a challenge for me but I have a few today that I hope you will like.  Some are from the new occasions catalogue and some from the main catalogue.  I hope you are inspired.
