This week I was asked to make two cards by two colleagues of mine. They were for their sons, yes male cards again, but at least the younger version now and so not so hard.

This is the first one. She said he likes this footballer Messi. Who ?? I said !!! Yes, you guessed it, I'm not a football fan!!! My kids found me his photo from the internet and guided me on the colours to choose...and this is as far as I can manage to get them to join me in my crafting!!!

Anyways, she wanted this guy on the card....aww no stamp I thought ... but then I thought about my Bugaboo Soccer Boy stamp I had and well, this is what I came up with. . . . and she loved it.. . hope he will too!

The Soccer Boy I coloured him with my promarkers and the background papers I did that myself on a word document. I also managed to find me some challenges for my card too :) Woo hoo :)

1 - Stamp Something - DIGI DAY CHALLENGE
2 - Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge No 39 - RED,WHITE AND BLUE/ WORLD CUP or a Football Theme

This is the second card... no challenges or stamps for this one though.. but I thought I'd share just the same as I really enjoyed making it and think it came out ok too. These are Pokemon. My kids when they were younger used to love them too, but now that they are growing up, they are more into football, music and computers. The background image I found it on the internet and then I added the stars from the MS border punch which I also added at the bottom. Hope he'll like it!

Well, thanks so much for looking today, hope you are having a great weekend.
