Card Drive cards and digital freebie

My DS turns 6 today and while this isn't his Birthday Card - I decided to share a "boy" card today.  These  are cards I made for Jennifer McGuire's Card Drive for Kids.  If you don't know anything about it and are interested - I posted here about it.

The image is by Maurie J Manning aka Mo - and I won it in one of her recent Challenges - thanks Mo.  Just the perfect image for those boy cards!  I coloured it with copics, added glossy accents to the helmet.  I used Glitz distressing background stamps on the red deckle edged card which I clear embossed and added chipboard stickers and hey presto... card done!  Mo's images are available here and she very kindly gives out freebies to her Paper Craft Planet members occasionally too - join up here (or to her SNR Card Universe if you are a member there).
I also made this one using a Little Musings Image - by SJ.  She does freebies on Fridays and I picked up this image called "Finn" to play with.  I coloured him with copics and added glossy accents to the eyes.  Used the same stamp for the background but just stamped with versamark ink.  Sentiment from Hero Arts set.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday... mine will be Astro boy filled!!!!
