NSD Challenge #5: Kid's Craft

Hey everyone!  I'm here with a card I made for a challenge yesterday but due to some planned activities I couldn't post until now!  I am on a blog group called the Papertrey Paper Dolls and one of my fellow Dolls, Laurie from Hiding in My Craft Room, issued several challenges yesterday for National Scrapbooking Day!  One of the ones I chose to participate in was the "Kid's Craft" challenge.  I had to make a birthday card anyway for a birthday party my son was attending yesterday so this was perfect! 



What is it with boys and video games anyway?  I mean we had to buy my son's friend Pokeman cards.  I don't understand Pokeman at all and don't intend to.  Don't get me wrong........I love playing my DS when I get time but I prefer something like Sally's Salon or Cake Mania!  :)  But isn't this PTI stamp set perfect for those gamers in your life?  This $5 set will get lots of love in my house!!


This is also for one of the Papertrey Paper Dolls challenges that are ALWAYS open over on our blog. 
Katie issued us a challenge to use only scraps from our scrap bin to make a card!  Well folks, all these pieces were in mine!  Even the blue card base! 

Did any of you enjoy National Scrapbooking Day with any fun activities?  I did get to go to my LSS yesterday for a free Make 'n Take and everything was 20% off!  Whahooo....can't beat that!  I picked up some yummy new DP collections that you will start to see on my cards soon!

Awesome card Amy! I'm sure your son and his friend loved it! Is your son into nin-jaga now? I have no idea how it is played either, but my boys are addicted!

All scraps? I can't believe it! This is such a great design. Love how you used the circle border with punch-out sentiments, and the stamping on the grid paper :)
