Adolescent Boys !

Its one of my grandsons birthday on Wednesday 22nd... I find cards for males quite a trial but adolescent boys!!! are even worse.. 
apologies to the male of the species :)

I was thinking about this card wondering what to do etc etc, I was getting desperate, Wednesday is fast approaching. I don't have many stamps suitable for teenage boys... me thinks I'll have to have a closer look at Stampotique!
Then I remembered my polka doodles
"Not for girls definitely for men" CD
whew! thank goodness... all the images and DP are from this CD.
I had decided to go with the black and white theme (trying to be cool insert wry grin)
It looked a bit dull, needed some colour so I added yellow
  ( hope this isn't a rival teams colours ... I know nothing! ) 

So now I am entering  it into the PDCCC colour splash ... which is black and white with a splash of yellow.

Hope your all keeping warm and safe..its minus 12 on my garden thermometer!

 The yellow is much brighter than is showing on the blog. 
It hasn't scanned well and its too dark  out side for a photograph

Great card for a boy, must agree with you though I always struggle to make cards for men/boys. You have risen to the challenge and this is a great make. Have a fabulous Christmas, Tracy Evans x x

Brilliant card, and no apologies required. 'Male' cards are a pain, especially if they're not into sport!

BTW, I love the pic of your decorations at the top of the page :)

I'm sure he will love this card and I find that Polkadoodles often come up trumps for a more unusual card.
