Well today, is an exciting day for me. My oldest son turns 13. Where has time went? I just don't know, it seems like yesterday I was holding him in my arms...now he is 1/4 inch shy of 6 feet tall and I have to reach up to hug him. Hmmm. I must say today I have struggled with him becoming a teenager (yes some silly tears have flowed, hate to admit it, but it is true) and also because I lost my dad at 13. He is a very, very lucky boy to have his dad here with him.
Tristan loves horses and he has taken to wearing black (he does like some color though :o), sooooo I thought the two would be perfect for a card. I cased part of this card from my friend Lori's one stack a stamp christmas card. I changed some things to make it my own (colors, two top notes, a different cuttlebug folder, no ribbon, no daubers and different stamps). A huge thanks go out to her, because I was under the gun once again *wink*. The last few days have not been kind to me...Pain has set in and stoled my MOJO and let me tell you I want it back...LOL. Oh, well things can only get better, right????.
There is a new blog challenge out there that everyone should have a look at. It is called Stampin Royalty. All the DT's have done an amazing job on the first challenge and the cards are awesome!!!!! How did I find this new challenge blog, well it was from Sandra Farrell, Stamper on the Shore. With my son's permission I am posting this birthday card onto the challenge. Oh ya, in my ramblings I forgot to tell you their first challenge is a birthday card, to celebrate their birthday and launch.
So here is the big birthday card.
Stamps: Bareback and It's Your Birthday (SU)
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, DSP (SU)
Ink: Vera Mark
Accessories: Top Note (SU), black embossing powder, D'vine Swirl folder (cuttlebug), black pearls, dimensionals, heating gun.
Sorry the posts have not been regular lately, I hope that changes soon. :).
