Happy Birthday Grandson!

Nathans-bd2012

Hello friends!  Just a real quick post today.  I wanted to share a card I made for my Grandson who turned 14 last Thursday!  Yikes!  Where did time go?  Anyway... I had won a free image from Karen's Doodles some time back and had chosen this one because my Grandson's dream is to get an old VW real cheap (is that possible?)  and then for Christmas, birthday,s etc. ask for the parts needed to fix it up and eventually he'd have a "whole" car!  Not a bad idea when you think about it!  Scary thing is that in TN. where he lives, kids can drive at 15!  Double Yikes !!!  Actually.... I think he will be a very good driver once he has had some experience and learns how to drive expecting the other guy to do something stupid.  (That is the one piece of advice I remember myself from Driver's Ed.... drive defensively and expect that the other guy is going to do something stupid. LOL!)  Anyhoo.... look out TN coz here he comes!!!

I  colored this fun image with Copics.  I knew the minute I saw this one that it was perfect for him!  Had to wait until I knew he had gotten it before I shared it.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Cards For Men -  "Boys and Their Toys", Hooked on Crafts - Try Something New (digi), iCopic Challenge - must use Copics- use your neglected copic colors (Dark Blues), Lexi's Creations -  Anything Goes, Lollipop Crafts - NO Embellishments (yikes!), Make it Monday - always Anything Goes, Scrappers Delights -Anything Goes, Truly Madly Crafty Challenges - Anything Goes, Dream Valley Challenges - Anything Goes, Gingerloft -  Anything Goes, One Stitch At A Time - Anything Goes,Catch The Bug -  Birthday Challenge, Secret Crafter - #168 Anything goes with Blue

That's it for me today!  I've been VERY busy creating, but creating things I can's share just yet! :)
