Some boyish cards.

Hi Guys,

My friends' and rellies' kids keep having birthdays, and they are nearly all boys. I seem to be making lots of car and truck elated cards.

Byron, who lives in Cairns, was 5 in September (yes, it was a huge month for birthdays). I saw this cute card made with SU's 'I Dig You' stamp set and 'Summer Smooches' DSP.  I didn't have the new 'in-color (sic)' blue and green, so used 'Pacific Point' and 'Garden Green'. I love the bright colours. I never actually heard back re this card.

This next card is also a CASE of this card from one of my fav blogs, and it is only one of about 4 variations that I have made for various boys that I know. It uses the 'Need for Speed' set and I have alternated between using the car and the quad bike depending on the boy. As I have said before, I like this birthday sentiment for male cards. I usually colour the 'i' to match the card but must have forgot this time. I made a car one for my friend Jenn's Harry, and he told her that "Aunty Fi makes the best cards". High praise indeed, as his Mum and two Aunts are all card makers (who occasionally pop by my blog, sorry Jenn and Leah, MWAH).

I was surprised to find that I haven't yet blogged one of these cards.

Have a fabbo day,

Fi xox
