I play video games.....

Good Evening! I took this week's My Favorite Things Sketch and flipped it on its side for my card. Another male card for me....quite a different thing! When I saw the sketch, though, I just "saw" this card:) I envision this as a card for my 19 year old son. He can play video games all night! And I mean NIGHT!! What is it with teenagers and their off sense of day and night?!?!

I paper pieced the image and popped it up on the card. I added the background detail and some extra matting. I decided it needed a little something extra, so I added the star. Thank heavens for star punches!!

This is fantastic, Anne! I laughed at your story about your son playing games all night. I still don't know how I stayed up all night as a teenager but I sure wish I had some of that energy now. LOL
