Toys for the boys

Morning all.
 Hope I find you well and not too chilled. I think the Indian summer has finally bit the dust and we are back to more typical temperatures in this neck of the woods.
As its Tuesday, its time for a new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
This week we would like to see your creations along the theme of


Yep, we would like to see your projects that have modern technology as the main focus. So TVs, smartphones, laptops, computers, Xboxes etc.
Here is my card for the DT inspiration.

This is a stamp I bought from LOTV the other week when I had a trip out with my friend Di.
I think its called James with laptop. I used Copics to colour and the background paper was some NitWits in the stash, not sure of the collection as its been in the stash for a while! The scalloped green section was cut using a Magnolia edge die.

The layout is based on the sketch over at Retro Sketches.

James looked a little pensive so the sentiment strip was made to match. I used a two line sentiment stamp from Personnel Impressions, I masked off each line and stamped them to make a strip instead of the original.

OK, now its your turn. Check out the other fab inspiration over at the main site and have a go, you never know unless you try.
