Birthday Cards for Boys

Today we had a birthday party to go to and I hadn't made a card yet. It's for one of our friend's sons, and he is turning 10. Well, I made the first card, was quite happy with it then asked Paul if it seemed to kiddie for the birthday boy. He said, "Ummm..." So I started to make another one. He did say it was cute, but I think we both kind of thought it was a little too kiddie for a 10 year old. Maybe not, but I made another one anyway. The turtle one can go to one of his little brothers ^_~

This was the first one I made using the Tyson Turtle from CHF. The Owl stamps I have are also from Cornish Heritage Farms as well. In fact the party hat is from the Owl set. Uses the Good Times paper set and From Me to You stamp set for the sentiment.

And this was the one we ended up giving to the birthday boy. It's a bit simpler, but I think it worked better for him. Plus I was working like super speed to make this one since we were supposed to be leaving, lol.

Well, my 10 year old would have liked the turtle one just fine...but then again my 10 year old still loves stuffed animals...etc. He's a pretty "young" 10 year old. I'm glad...I'll keep him young till he's an adult if I can! LOL. Both are great cards!
