home-made trading cards

~ A few weeks back while helping a friend pack up her kids' room I stumbled across his homemade trading cards that were AWESOME! I loved everything about them from concept to completion.
Ironically, that same week burger was begging to go buy some new trading cards. I asked,"what kind?" he responded "baseball, no ...Bakugan, no ....monsters!" I said" monsters! those would be awesome,but I am not sure they make them".
I then explained about the friends cards and to as a lovely surprise he was super stoked. That day 2 weeks ago we bought some new skinny markers and a package of cards. We have since bought 2 more packages of cards! he cannot get enough. Everyday, several times a day, he sits and makes cards. he almost always works in series. Sometimes we join in(grackles) or he asks us to label them. However the last few days he has been labeling them himself. I am loving it. Here are a few of the first ones.
