Square eyed boys!

I made this card for my son's friend as it really reminds me of boys of around 11ish (and forever after I think!) they become obsessed this computer game or that computer game.....they live to play on it and talk about it CONSTANTLY.....what level they're on, what secret tricks they would think their life depended on it.

OMG - it drives me barmy but it's a fact of life these days - the technology is here to stay and the computer games will just keep on coming!

So I thought this would be a very appropriate card, using a sweet little LOTV stamp featuring a boy who looks just about the right age....although my son tells me that the buttons on the controller aren't quite right (see what I mean?.......obsessed!!!)

I have delved in to my Bearly Mine digi papers again for this card, using the Boyz Zone set and importing them in to Serif to make them the right size and shape. Now I would't be without my Serif now, but I am not all that adventurous so I am patting myself on the back that I custom made the greeting stopper. Also the background paper tat you see is not matted and layered - I did it all on the PC so it is one flat sheet. I could play around with that program all night!

So I would like to enter a few challenges with this card, and here they are:
Southern Girls - No Spoolin

Thanks for stopping by today :o)
