There comes a time in every rightly-constructed boy’s life...

I have a cute little card to share today featuring Jude’s Heart from Simply B Stamps.

As I’m giving this to my young nephew for his birthday I’ve covered the heart in Jude’s hand with a pirate treasure map.  I thought the look on Jude’s face worked very well for a little boy baffled by the directions on a map.

To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch at RetroSketches, I just made the corner element out of my sentiment strips and some stars to match the star paper I used.  I also made the rectangular element a bit larger to accommodate Jude but mostly so I could use my new Doohickeys die.  My crafty resolution formulated this week (a bit late for New Year’s I know but hey, better late than never) is to use every new die I get as soon as I get it.  This is to hopefully get me from just ordering and hoarding dies to actually using them on my cards.

As I do have a die cut on my card I am entering this in the current challenge over at Stamping Sensations.  I’m also entering my card in Cardz 4 Guyz’s current challenge as it is for a guy (a young one but a guy nonetheless) and it is for a birthday.
