Boys cards are so hard, I have problems every time and unfortunately have far more nephews than nieces, its so unfair. i find I feel like its hard to do something different and my son and one nephew are turning 16 this year which is such a hard in between age, at least my younger nephews are a bit easier to make for , your card is great. I really think i am so going to have to try aand find some more teenage boy stamps well boystamps in general and invest. Thanks for sharing greeting farm will now be on the list.julye

Hi Susie,
Lovely boys card hun. I purposely look for stamps that would suit boys as there are alot fewer of them - so it's a case of buy them when you see them. I love the DP you've used.
Hugs
