Happy Birthday Nathan!
Today I thought I'd share a card I made for my Grandson who turns 13 on Jan 12! Where did the time go? It seems like just yesterday he was a little baby! Now he is as tall as I am! I'm so thankful for such a wonderful Grandson though... he's such a good "kid"! He truly loves the Lord and has a heart for things of God. I pray that he'll never lose that sight and that he will stay close to the Lord all his days. So as he enters his teen years... his Mom and Dad probably shudder a little, and we all joke about plugging up his ears until he's 21 so his brains don't run out one night.... (an old joke you might not have heard).... but the fact is.... he's growing into a wonderful young man. It brings me such pleasure to watch as the long days of parenting yield their fruit!
His wish for his birthday is to be able to go take snowboard lessons. Since they live in the mountains, and they got 8" of snow yesterday and are forecast to have a "25 year snow storm" over the next 3 days, I have a feeling that having snow is NOT going to be the issue... more likely it will be whether they can actually get TO the ski lodge! LOL! At any rate... I made this card with an image from Stampin spot Studio by Jen Ofiana. I bought these from my lss during a consignment sale so I have no idea if they are still available. There were so many fun images for kids and tweens with sports related subjects. The DP (Jack Frost) and base (Pastel Textured) are both ATD. I colored the image with Copics and paper pieced the snow board with a scrap of Papertrey Ink. dp I had in my stash. On the inside I used a sentiment from Great Impressions that simply says "Wishing you everything that makes you happy". The only embellishments I added to the card were these felt snowflakes... I'm figuring teenage guys might not want ribbon and lace, ya think? :)
