Good Morning. Most kids have headed back to school or do shortly. The boys head back to school next week and I wanted to make sure they had a card in their lunch box the first day. I always make a few through the year and day 1 is always important as the other kids seem to enjoy them as well. Finally inked up my new Whiff of Joy Racer Henry ! Since I was inking up a WOF, I checked out the challenge on the Whiff of Joy Challenge blog this week. The challenge is to use eyelets or brads. I stamped the car first for the panel I wanted. Then on a seperate paper I stamped out Henry and masked him with his race car so that when I cut out the circles the car would be behind him. Now don't look too closely at the one, I didnt match up my masking where I wanted it. Sssshh... The kids will never know the difference. :0) The windows have liquid glass added to them and his helmet shield for a nice shine. The flag is from At the Races from Clear Dollar Stamps. The boys are going to love these. Each has their favorite colors for their racer. Popped them up on dimensionals and voila!

What cute cards for your boys! I'm afraid that this is the first year that neither of my " boys" go back to school! My youngest finished up university this spring and is working in his field.. I guess I have to cross my fingers for grandchildren someday! :)
