Two Birthdays

I have two Grandson's who have birthdays in the same month and only a year apart.  They are growing up fast and it is getting difficult to find images for their respective cards but this year LOTV came to the rescue with their Oliver range of Digi images. I found two that were just perfect for them.

1st Card.
The image by LOTV is Oliver Game Boy.  This Grandson, as soon as school is over likes nothing more than to get home onto his computer and play games.

Coloured using my Graph'it markers and a silver gel pen.  The sentiment and banner are by Clearly Besotted from their Basic Banners stamp set. The beige cardstock and design papers from my stash. Slowly getting the hang of the little sewing machine. Glittered numbers were also in my stash.

Entering into the following challenges:
Jan's Digi Challenges #3 Anything goes.
Polkadoodles Craft Challenge #48 Anything goes.
Colour Crazy #47 Anything goes.
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #119 Anything goes.



2nd Card.
The image by LOTV is Oliver Kicking About. This Grandson hates school (thinks it is boring )
and is horrified by the idea of having to stay there until he is 18.  He does however love Football and is never happier then when playing in his team.


Coloured again with my Graph'it markers and a silver gel pen.  Banner and sentiment as above. The blue cardstock and design paper along with the silver numbers from my stash.

Entering into the following challenges:
Crafts Galore #70 Anything goes.
Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper # Anything goes.
Love To Craft #41 Anything goes.
The Creative Crafters #22 Anything goes.

Two really great older boys cards, very apt for the ages.
My youngest Grandson goes 11 this week and I had an easy choice for his card, it has a dog on it, he is sick to have a dog his Christmas list was.

! - A dog
2 - a dog bowl
3 - dog bed
He is very good at football, he can't wait to get to BIG school, mostly because of the gym and the sport.

My eldest goes 15 in April, he loves school and is really into computers, he has three screens and does all sorts of things with it and plays games too.

So cool - both cards! LOTV are always hard to beat. And I bet the boys love them. I see your weird friend has left a comment above mine! I ran it through Google Translate and it seems that someone is offering their cleaning services - no kidding! :)

It seems that you have found the two perfect images for your grandsons!! Lovely both your cards!
Kids today are very unhappy about what they have (as a great number of adults, I think) and school is very boring for the most of them. Playing games (virtual or not) is the only interest at that age...
