Oh me I have had a right to do with round two, as Karen said to do our own thing, but my problem is whatis my own thing, a few months ago it was all colour and paper but recently I have got well and truly into CAS and WOW cards, so after a few failed attempts I have come up with two cards, and I have gone COLOUR this time as it was WOW in the last round.
The first one I am happy to share with you is a girlie one, all pink and cutesy,

For this card I have kept to the clean and simple approach as I love this image HIPPIE CHICK and the size of it is perfect to make it the real star of the card, well I think so anyway.
Used to make this card
Stamp - Hippie Chick from Sugar Nellie
Coloured with - Promarkers
DP - Bo Bunny
Cardstock - Stash Boxes
I have used chalk and a scallop punch to create the cloudy sky effect on the background, this is the first time I have tried this technique and I rather like the finished effect.
And of course no card is complete without a MS border punch.
And now for my second, I have a couple of older boys birthdays coming up early in 2011 so am getting them out the way now before mr Mojo goes on his annual xmas break.

I love this image for older boys, and I had to go COLOUR again, and colour I have used to the max I think, but as he's going to be 10 I think I can get off with it
Used To Make This card
Stamp - No 1 Fan from Sugar Nellie
Coloured with - Promarkers
DP - My Minds Eye Lil Robots pack
Sentiment - Personnal Impressions
The Label/Tag is a spellbinders Nestabilitie set which I forgot I had until recently
For both cards I went with CAS, no embellishments, just the DP and the Image, and I think for these thats all thats needed.
Anyway I hope you really like them, and if you do please please vote for me in the final round xxx
Thanks for taking the time out to visit me and please leave me a comment or two along the way.
Take care and stay safe in this white weather

I was going to email you to wish you all the best with this - but now I can comment instead. The balck works so well in the first one & the sky is brilliant. I think a 10 year old will be just fine with your second. I too think that CAS is great - but haven't really quite got the measure of it yet.
All the best
