4 year olds

Hi Guys,

I have had a few days off work and am starting to feel much better, although it still sounds a bit like a bear is living in my chest. I am going to work tonight, then have 2 days off, work 4 shifts & then I have a month off. I can't wait. I am looking forward to doing some crafting with my niece and my nephew's girlfriend while they are visiting from Russia.

Recently I had two cards to make for 4 year old boys. I usually go young and cutesy but didn't this time.

I wasn't sure of what to make for my cousin's son Byron, and as the card had to be posted to Cairns I was running short on time. Mum said that he likes guitars so I went with that:

I have CASEd this card from here and used my usual colour combo & Celebrations DSP (retired). Best money's worth I've had out of any DSP!

My friends' son Sam loves computer games and is the youngest of 3 boys, so likes to be treated as a 'big boy'. I CASEd this card from Nichole Heady (you ned to scroll quite a way to find the original). I brightened the colours and white embossed the game remote as Sam's is white. He was really thrilled with it.

As you would know, I am a huge fan of number dies. I have an SU set & a PTI set, and you can't beat it for kids cards. In two seconds you can make a card that much more personal, and kids seem to love age cards. Funny how that doesn't seem to apply to adults....

I have just made some cards for my nephew's upcoming 16th, will blog after the event, not that he's likely to be scrolling through my blog anytime soon LOL.

Better go have, a rather late, brekky. Have a great weekend,
Fi xox

Great cards Fi! The colours are fabulous & it's neat that you have personalised them to the boys' age & interests. The die-cut numbers always look great on your cards & the CE really makes them pop! :)

I am very jealous of your number dies! Definitely would love them ... but because I don't scrap ... I don't think I would use the letters ... so the price seems a bit of a deterrent! Great cards, Fi! You seem to have the male cards nailed! Hugs xx
