June WMS Blog Waltz

Today is the day of the June Waltzing Mouse blog waltz! This is my first time participating, and for the life of me I can't get the badge to display. Will anyone give me a pointer on how to get it on here? Thanks!!

The theme this month is boys! And am I ever surrounded by boys! Here's a quick card I made up using Free Spirit Boy and Free Spirit Additions. My son thought this would be the perfect card for him to use for a friend's birthday.


I pulled some textured cardstock from my stash, tore the edges and then gradually sanded more and more with each layer to let the white core show through. Also pulled in PTI Aqua mist for my skyline and surfboard. The other board is stamped with SU Pumpkin Pie.
