A giraffe and a cake?

I was asked by a friend to make her a few cards for some birthdays she had coming up

So the first was for her grandson who was 2 and is obsessed with Giraffes!
This cute digi is from Digi Doodle Shop, but they are now closed.  But if you would like to get a digi similar to this, i know Mo Manning does one similar.

It is colored with promarkers.
The papers were free from a magazine recently.  

The second card was for her son.
When i asked her what he was into, she said his xbox, but i couldn't decide on an image for it, so whilst looking through my digis i came across this one that i brought AGES ago and had forgotten about it.
When i showed her the image, we agreed that is was the perfect image!
She asked me to colour the hair shocking pink as that is what his girlfriend has!

The image is from Redonkadoodles (new name) and is coloured with promarkers.
The striped paper is from Man about Town from Wild Rose
The checked paper is from Dovecraft (i think)
The candi is from Craftwork Cards

I hope you like them both and thanks for looking
