Hi Everyone,

This week's challenge is all about THE BOYS! Simply create a project a BOY THEMED project(robots, trains, trucks, sports, etc).

I have to confess this challenge was a hard one for me, which is SHOCKING as I'm a mom to TWO BOYS!! I struggled with ideas and finally settled for a Rocket Ship Shaped Card.

The Rocket Ship is from the Cricut B is for Boys Lite Cartridge. I used the Cricut Craft Room to weld together two Rockets at 6.5" to form a Card Base. I then added each layer cut mostly from an older Imaginisce Colletion called Let's Pretend, separating each with my dimensionals.

I replaced the strips included in the cut with an ovalish - rectangle and stamped it with the BRAND NEW My Craft Spot "Build A Valentine" Stamp Set. I just LOVE this Stamp Set as you can mix n' match the phrases to create your PERFECT sentiment!

To finish my Rocket Ship, I added a button twined with some "Blue Berry Blue" Baker's Twine, available at My Craft Spot.

NOW, its YOUR turn! Create a BOY THEMED creation and link it up to the My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #42 by Monday, January 30th 11:59 PM EST for your chance to win this week's prize.
