Addicted to cards theme-boys

Morning everyone and welcome to another challenge here at ATS. This week we are asking you to do a dreaded male card...one for the boys! August is when I have 4 boys cards, the two important ones being both of my sons. So here is what I came up with for Keir, my youngest, and daddy to my favourite boy, Charlie Bear!! I don't like to go on too........ much about him so I created his own page at the top of my blog, says the proud grandmother:))


Isn't this the perfect card for today's modern men? Keir doesn't have quite so much time these days for gaming but he still enjoys a play:) I found the template on the web and cut it out in black card keeping the top at the fold so that it would open as a card. I printed out another on white card and coloured and cut out the buttons and popped them up on foam pads.
Here is the template if you'd like it for yourself:


We are off to Portsmouth for his birthday on Saturday and hoping for fine weather as Keir loves a BBQ! We normally travel down on Friday but I have a date with Sir Tom Jones at Newmarket:))

This is a scheduled post so by the time you read it, it will all be over and hopefully there will be some fabulous cards from you in the challenge. Do check out the rest of the DT for inspiration and good luck with the challenge.
Can't wait to show you what I made for Dom, my eldest son's birthday, but that's not till the 28th:)

Val you are a very cool grandmother! This is the BEST boy card I've seen in a long time. Totally perfect for boys of today. My son is turning 12 next week and this would suit him to a T - but I've already made his card. I'm going to slip this in the CASE file for next year though. Totally awesome!

Hi Val,
It's very late, and between me and my iPad, we made quite a few errors, so I had to delete and start again.

Your card is brilliant!!! I made a smaller version and put it on the front of our sons birthday card in July, and it was very much appreciated. I love that you made yours into an actual card. I'm sure your son will love it!

Have a lovely time with Sir Tom, and enjoy your trip to Portsmouth and lots of cuddles with Charlie Bear! x
