Whiff of Joy Summer kit - one for the boys

Oh I just love the new Whiff of Joy Summer kit - I really didn't think that anything could better the Spring kit but I was so wrong, it's too adorable for words.

Some of you lucky ladies have received your stamps already so for those that haven't I am going to spoil the excitement and post a card made with sweet little Oakley. This image shouted fishing with daddy to me, look at that little hat - bless. I stamped around the image with one of the small swirls from the Whiff of Joy Swirls set. These are such useful little stamps and some of them are not too swirly so perfect for male cards.

I'm entering this card in two challenges - Cute Card Thursday which is to have letters and or numbers on your card (rub-ons on his little sign) and die cut letters on the inside). The second challenge is for Simon Says Stamp which is to make a boys card.

The papers are digi freebies that I downloaded a while back, loved the colours and are well in with my imaginary gone fishing with daddy theme lol. I struggled with stopping myself from adding my usual flowers, and it looked way too bare with just the little dragonfly brads so on went the buttons. Thank goodness for buttons on male cards - imagine me leaving a bare space on my cards lol.
