A Tricky One

What card can you make for a 21st Birthday male? Obviously monsters, trucks and boys toys are not quite right (although boys never grow up - right?!) So was quite pleased with my little self when I found this digi image of Mikey in my files - from Charmed Cards and Crafts. Bit of a cheat really as he was pre-coloured, although I've darkened his hair to look like the recipient.

I've combined it with the current Digital Tuesday sketch which is:

And I've used papers - physical ones - from Funky Hand called Funky Fellas. Buttons are from my stash and the jute twine is from my kitchen drawer.

The sentiment is computer generated and I've doodled a border around the edge

  • Backing papers: Funky Fellas 8x8 paper pack from Funky Hand
  • Image: Mikey pre coloured from Charmed Cards and Crafts
  • Sentiment: Computer generated
  • Everything else: My stash / kitchen drawer


  1. Ruth this is soooooo perfect for a 21-year-old male. Love the image and the papers really set it off. BTW - I don't think it's cheating to take the image and produce this at all. Hugs...Kris

  2. Oh wow thia is great for any age, my oldest will be 15 next week and I was looking for images like this as he isn't really into music and I am fed up of football ones LOL!!

    Brill card!

  3. As you rightly say Ruth, they never grow up, but this is spot on and I think the twine gives it a nice masculine feel as well.
