Birthday Boys.

Both of my Grandson's have their Birthdays in December just 1yr apart.  My daughter's son is very much into cats so his card this year reflects that. He did put feelers out  for cat as his present but I don't think his Mum was too keen on the idea of going out and rounding up yet another stray to add to the household!  The digi image is a pre coloured one by Paper Creator Called 'Bandits Mischievous Smile' (I did have a blue and white  persian cat at one time that I named Bandit). The background paper is called 'Folk Art Cats' by Cooper Station.  The Meows  were black stickers from my stash. The number nine cut from an old calendar at some time and kept in an old tin just in case.

My other Grandson  is very much into football. The image is a digi From Twinkle Lane Designs. You get the footballer, sentiment and the goal tag all in the download. The image has a number 1 on the shirt so I fussy cut a new shirt from plain paper which I coloured in with the 2018 strip of his home team. The number is black stickers I had in my stash and of course represents his age.  The blue netting paper is by Betsy Rainbow and the black football paper from the Print Fun Factory both Etsy shop downloads. Oh and he does have red hair though my son would shoot me for saying so!!

Lovely football card and what a coincidence that the boys are both 10 this year. I would have liked to have coloured the strip like you have done to make it more personal, but mine was a precoloured image.
