Pokémon! Gotta catch them all!

My sons are huge fans of Pokémon.  


Particularly my younger son.  He collects the cards, action figures, stuffed animals, t-shirts...

Pretty much whatever he can get his little hands on.

So when a friend of ours brought him back some real Japanese Pokémon cards from his trip over there, I figured a special thank you card was in order and I wanted to incorporate both sons' favorite colors: blue and green.

This, (in case you don't speak Pokénese, not that I really do either) is a Poké Ball.  

In the game, it's a contraption for catching and transporting Pokémon to battles by their trainers.

Get it?

Me neither.

But my little guy was thrilled with this card I made and couldn't stop pressing the round, white button I popped up on a dimensional.

Anyone else out there with kids still obsessed with Pokémon?  

I'd really think this fad would have died down by now!
