Boys will be boys


I had a card to make to send to my little nephew in England for his birthday next week. This is what I came up with. He is going to be 11 and is a right little cutie. Not sure he will be too interested in his card but he might be with what I put inside it lol.

Boys are so difficult to make for unless you know they have a particular hobby. I know he'll love this though - even if it is only as a vessel for what's inside.
