Karate Kid card

Hello, and welcome!

I will be sooooo glad when I've got through all these flippin' boy cards.........but thank you all so much for the great comments you've been leavin' for's not that I particularly like makin' boy cards, but rather that I don't have much choice!!
Maybe I really should have stopped at that one sweet little girl, back in 1970......but, with my luck, she'd have probably grown up to  produce all these boys all by her ickle self!!
Anybody want 2 sons, 10 grandsons, 3 sons-in-law, 2 brothers, 2 brothers-in-law, friends, neighbours, bin-men, man at the pizza place, etc., etc.,.........scrub the last three....I'm not really quite that sad, lol!

Okay....if I have to....might as well get it over with.........

This is for grandson, George.........will be 8 years old (another boy baptism card comin' up...groan) in August....which means I'm making one more male card, for a friend who is having surgery soon.....and then it's all pretty, pretty until September....yaaaay!!
By the time George has his birthday, he will have his yellow belt in Karate.........

This is you can see, he's a blondie.......

Was in a bit of a hurry, so this was a quick and simple one.....aren't they all?

Papers were scraps left over from another boy card, and the large star is a journaling spot from ?????....oh I'm sooooo bad at takin' notes as I work........the image was a freebie digi....isn't he cute?.......and of course he had to have a bright yellow belt!  Not much colourin' with this....told ya it was quick and simple......

Didn't have 3 yellow star brads, so used a silver one, in the middle, to be yellow, but looks more like gold, ......I can live with it, if you can.....heehee......

The sentiment was from the same sheet that the large star came from, and I mounted it onto a scrap of brown Bazzil, as I did with the 3 small stars.....all up on foam strips.........easy-peasy......
And there you go.........
Only one more male card to go....for the time being, lol........

Thanks for droppin' in!
