Game on!

My son will be turning 17 in 3 in the heck is that possible?!? He has been obsessed with all things gaming since he was old enough to play Candy Land. Chess, Monopoly, cribbage and dominoes have all been faves at one time or another. Video and computer games reign supreme though. That was the inspiration for this card. The video playing boy is a digi stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil. I made the background using words that gamers use. I hope he likes it.

This weeks challenge at DYSU is "Just for boys or men". I'm sure if it weren't for this challenge I would have been hustling at the last minute to make him a card. lol I think we can all use masculine inspiration in our card making. Go take a look at some of the awesome card creations at the DYSU challenge. Here's the link-
