Hello, hello, hello!
For those who may have missed yesterday, go back and read it!
The fabulous Vanessa Menhorn and I are paired in a personal card challenge this week at the Hero Arts Flickr Group. We decided that our challenge would be to make cards for Jennifer McGuire's Cards for Kids, a program that sends handmade cards to children with serious health issues and to their family members.
For those of you who dropped by yesterday and left compliments, I thank you. (If you come again tomorrow, chocolate chip cookies would be appreciated.)
(Yes, I remembered I have funny little graphics I can toss into my posts....)
Yesterday I made a card for a teenage girl. Today, I decided to attempt to make a card for a boy, aged 7 and up - which isn't easy to do because (1) what do you put on a card for a boy?; (2) there are not so many boy-appropriate stamps out there; and (3) see #1 and #2 for an explanation as to why I don't make a whole lot of boy cards (that, and everyone I know seems intent on producing baby girls - who they're going to marry is beyond me if this trend continues.)
So here's my card. I TRIED to make it palatable to the male taste....
