Climbing Ropes and Kettlebell Weights

Last year Amitai and Gavriel were into running and swimming, and before that they filled their time playing tennis and basketball. This year they turned 11 and it looks like they were happy with the choice of activities Mum made for their birthday cards on this occasion!
She asked me to show Amitai climbing a rope, which he likes to do as part of his fitness programme. Mum specified that for sport he wears black adidas shorts with 3 yellow stripes on them, and black trainers with the same 3 stripes. His favourite colour is yellow, so I made that the colour of his T-shirt. To his left is a white T-shirt with the Hebrew words מרוץ מודיעין נבחרת יחד printed on it. Amitai has just made it on to the school running team and the shirt declares that he is part of the team. On his right is the logo of the Sayarut youth movement, run by The Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel, which Amitai goes to regularly. A big number 11 marks his age.
Gavriel is more into weights and Mum asked me to show him holding a Kettlebell weight on his card. He wears grey adidas shorts for sport and the red T-shirt marks his favourite colour. Mum was also keen for me to include a big Nerf gun and some darts, and to add a few green army men too.
She seemed thrilled with her sons' cards. "Fabulous cards! I think possibly best ever for them [Amitai and Gavriel]" she messaged me.

So cool! I’m sure these boys, as all of your clients, have an album of your cards that they will always treasure.

These are such great cards. The kids must have loved them since they are so personalized. I think handmade and personal are always the best!

I never knew it was to different ages for boys and girls, but it makes sense since girls mature faster than boys. Have a great week!
