A Card For The Boys!

Hi Folks!

Last time I posted I said I needed to make a card for my daughters friend at school, and I actually got to sit and make that today!  It was a pretty quick and easy card thanks to the inspiration I found online here.  I loved this lady's card so much that I really didn't change all that much as you can see!  Thank you Colleen for inpiring me with your great card!

Here's my version, as I said, pretty much the same.......I just used a different sentiment and I also added some black cord to the game remote rather than keeping the stamped version!


It's a really simple card to make......took me no more than 1/2 an hour from start to finish.  Wish I could make more cards in this kind of time frame! lol

Hope you like it!

Woo hoo this is great! Love the cord you've used - always a nice way to add texture. Male cards can be a real challenge, love what you've done here.
