Mo Manning Birthday Card and Minecraft Egg Project

Good morning everyone.  Hope you are all well.  We have rain today but yesterday was quite nice, so can't complain.  I hope you all have a very happy easter!

It was my son's 9th birthday and I made this card for him from me and his dad.  The image is so much him, on his X Box.

Yep so much like my son lol.  I have used Promarkers (of course lol) to colour him in and the sentiments were computer generated.  I love the denim paper in the background but can't remember where they are from.

Just before Brandon broke up for Easter, there was an egg competition and Brandon decided he wanted to do Minecraft eggs and this is what we came up with.... Eggcraft !  Me, Dad and Brandon all chipped in to this and we came 3rd which was great because last year we came nowhere as the competition is really fierce.

The project features (from left to right) Creeper, Enderman, Steve and TNT.

I would like to enter my CARD into the following Challenges:-

Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes + A Sentiment
