Christmas Birthdays

The internet has been up and down since last Sunday and so far we have managed to keep it going by rebooting every day or so.  I need the Elf post to go out daily at the moment so have been concentrating on them and not showing any cards I have made.  These are two Birthday cards for my Grandsons who both have a Birthday in December 1yr apart. I found these clip art images on Etsy. They are both by Prettygrafik Design.

This first card is for Grandson No2  who has just turned eight.  I picked the image 'Fashion Boy 22'
to use on his card.  The images are all pre coloured but you can choose the colour hair that you want to go with the image. This one does look a lot like Sweet Cheeks and the clothes too. I have used silver card for the base and the star paper is by Hunkydory. The cut out numbers were from a card sheet in my stash. I used my rectangle stitch hole die by Crafts - Too to cut the image and backing card.

This second card is for Grandson No 1 who has his Birthday on Christmas Eve.  The card details are all the same except the image is 'Fashion boys 01' and and again I think it looks a lot like my Grandson. 
The football paper is from an Etsy shop Betsy Rainbow.
