GAME ON!

My kids love video games as most do. It seems like my sons hands are starting to merge with his DS. I think adults are going to evolve with coffee cup shaped hands and kids with game systems attached.



I made this for the CAARDVARKS CHALLENGE to color a stamped image and CUTE CARD THURSDAY challenge to make a terrible teen card. I know the image is a little cutesy for a teen but I let both my 9YO and 15YO play with it. They both loved pushing the buttons (they are all popped up with dimensionals) to the point where I had to take it off of them before the ruined it.



I used THIS pic from the web (and a consultation with my kids) to make a template for the game controller. It was made with a little pocket in the top so that a small card would fit inside. I put pop dots on the image just above the legs so it made a ledge to stop the card from falling inside. I am going to tuck a gift card inside for my nephew who has a birthday in February. First time ever I have a card made for him ahead of time. I am usually scrambling.

Wow such a cool and unique idea. That is what I call steppin out of the box. Good job.

Ok, too funny cuz I just came from Sandra's blog and she's got her game on over there, too! LOL! This project/card is STUNNING, Kim! This is just so darling! I'm glad I'm looking at it while my DS's are at school or they'd be yelling at me asking why I can't make cool stuff like this for them, LOL! Seriously, LOVE this!!! You are so talented!
