My Superboy


Hey Peeps. (This doesn't count Delphine!)

I made this card earlier in the week, (my first attempt at monotone) and it's kind of appropriate now, as Sweet Cheeks is our Star and Superboy. He's (unexpectedly) been in hospital the past few days and been poked, pricked, prodded, x-rayed, measured, tested, poked and then prodded some more and as much as a two and half year old can, been very friendly and brave about it.

Thankfully, we're home again now, but he's still a bit uncomfortable, so posting may be a bit random and sporadic over the coming days.


There's a new Challenge over at Sketch Saturday today and as it's Jo's week off, Terry has created this faberoony sketch for us to play with:


So, hop on over to Sketch Saturday and get all the details and see the gorgeous cards from the rest of The Saturdays...

I'm entering this at:

Well done, Sweet Cheeks! I hope all is ok now.

(I used to hate going to hospital with my own little boy for check-ups - now he can go with his lovely missus instead, but I still worry! Ah, Motherhood!!)

I'm astounded that this is your first monochrome, it looks so good! What a cutie the little superhero is!

Take care - luv, Mags x
