Created by my 10-year-old son......


Gage, my 10-year-old son, loves to be in my stamp room with me while I'm creating, and he's always coming up with new ideas for cards for me to make (usually using images he's drawn himself, or printed from the internet). He created this scene from several different images by cutting and pasting just the 'right' parts to make the scene he wanted. He added the 'skid' marks himself. The cardstock colors, silver cord and 'pokey-things' (brads) :-) --were all his idea. He's a tender-hearted little guy, and he would love to hear what you think of his 'Batman Card'. If you could leave a comment just for him, it would mean a LOT to me. Thank you all SO much for making my youngest son's day by letting him know what you think of his first upload!!

Awesome card! My boy likes to create too but the idea of using picture elements is new to us! Maybe he can finally make that train scene (probably crashing into something) he has always wanted to!

Hi Gage! This is only my 2nd post EVER!!! But because I am SO impressed with your card I wanted to write you a note. Believe it or not, when my son was your age he loved Bayman too. He is now 20 years old. But I'm pretty sure he still loves Batman. In fact he is having his 21st birthday next week and I need to make him a very special card. Your project has given me the idea to make him a Batman card to remind him of his childhood hero! Thanks for that memory and GOOD JOB!

P.S. Your mommy is very talented.
