Good Evening Peeps,
Yes, two cards for boys/young guys tonight. The first one is a card I have made for my only step grandson. I have 2 grandsons, one step grandson & 4 step granddaughters & another step grandchild on the way... that is what happens when you take on someone else's children for almost 10 years. There are 4 step kids but I only lived with 3 of them but out of those 3, the 2 daughters are the ones with the children. Cameron is the only boy & also the eldest out of the step grandchildren. He has been competing in Motor Cross for the past few years & last year came up trumps with winning the age group for the area that he competes in. I am very proud of him (and of all the kids, young & old)
but Motor Cross is such an expensive sport.
Anyway, for his 12th birthday card I wanted to use a sporty image for him & this Kenny K downloads image is the perfect one. I coloured him in Promarkers, Graph It alcohol pens & Sakura glitter and metallic pens giving the edge on the bike & his protective gear including protective suit.
The easel card was made using Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Circles & plain circles of the same range of cutting dies. The smaller circles were cut using the standard Nestabilities dies range from Spellbinders again. The finishing touch were the die cut words from the Tattered Lace sentiments die set & the little silver coloured bike charm.

The next card is one that is for sale, I made a couple of weeks ago but I have not posted on here before. It is made from the Hunkydory "Cards For Boys" card making kit.
I folded an A4 sheet of card into a tri fold card base & added bits from the kit to form the layout as in the photos below. The verse I found on a Hallmark Design Studio software that I have installed on my laptop. This is a large card measuring roughly 8 x 8 & half inches when folded for the envelope.
There is nothing else to say about this card apart from:
yo ho matey and a bottle of rum ;)
