J for Joshua

Good morning everyone,
I trust the week is treating you all well. We are having very hot weather here, not sure where spring has gone off to, but summer has definitely arrived. Yesterday the temp was 35 deg. C and the next few days much the same forecast, with a sprinkling of rain for tomorrow. Hope the sprinkling happens to be here over our area.
Well my card today was made for our grandson Joshua's 10th birthday. He loves doing things with his hands and is always making tree houses, or some or other contraption with his tools.
Here's what I used.
Paper......DP was from a pad, Wilson & Macglaglin. The brown I put through the cuttlebug with a folder to look like wood.
Image....Whiff of Joy, coloured with copics,....I am trying to use them more often...I cut it out and mounted with foam pads
The letter J and the numbers were cut with my Cricut......I did well used 2 of my "tools" for this card.. The J  also ran through the cuttlebug.
Sentiment....a local stamp...attached it and the J with brads... nails.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
All sorts....To the letter
Karen's Doodles K..for Karen..use a letter.
That's it for now. You go and have a great week, take care.

How sweet is that, Ursula... for a grandson who loves to work with his hands - just like his lovely gran who loves to create cards, right?

Love the embossing and the image is just right for him. The letter J looks awesome.

What a great boy card! I am loving that great big J:0)

Happy birthday to Joshua!

It is so odd to hear you speaking of a completely different kind of weather than what we have here. I suppose you have summer Christmas. That is just way weird. I love hearing you talk about the weather makes me feel great to know people of all over the world now:0)
