All Star...

Now, why is it so tough to make cards for boys?? Took me a while to think of what to do, but thanks to some great challenges...I put them all together and got this...
Following Tamiko's challenge, and the toughest part for me on this card was altering the image. It felt so weird to cut off  switch the heads of Dylan and Paul (both from the TGF Roll Call kit)! Even my kids said "WHY did you do that??" Then of course I explained it to them, and "ohhhh" was all they said. lol! Another challenge I followed was Color Me Copic's Challenge #4...take a look at this amazing toot by Amy on straight hair! The basketball is from my son's old sticker collection...which was in a big ziploc bag ready for donation! Luckily I remembered it was there, otherwise I would have been looking everywhere to find a basketball! Sentiment is computer generated and cut out with a Spellbinders label die...the green "ribbon" is actually cardstock! did I fool ya?? hehee!

Hi Mimi! I guess boy cards are always a little bit harder huh? But they make the best cards once you are done. Great job with the alteration and hair coloring. And you definitely fooled me with that ribbon. :) You did a fantastic job on all the challenges. Have a good week. Hugs,

Hi Mimi! Just catching up with blogs! Love your altered Sprout! I may have cut Paul's head off, too, for Tamiko's challenge but I think I missed the deadline! A great "boy" card!
