Gramma's Birthday Blessings for her first born grand child

Our Daily Bread designs stamps, Special Boy, Grace Nywening
Hello friends!
Yesterday marked the 15th year that I have been a Gramma!  Where has the time gone?  I just turned around and this tiny little bundle of baby boy turned in to an almost 6' tall young man, and a sweet loving young man at that!  This is the card I gave him for his birthday, because he and his dad are working on a big project of completely rebuilding an old 1949 GMC Pickup.  It's been his dream for some time, and now they finally have the opportunity and it's been a great way for them to spend time together.  When I gave him this card, he remarked a couple times that this card is really "COOL"!  That of course made me feel good! :)  So... if you have a young man in your life... young or old, I think this image is perfect for them all!  The stamps are from this month's release from Our Daily Bread designs, Special Boy.  I stamped with Memento and colored with Copics.  The papers are various scraps I had in my scrap box, on a black base. I hand cut the checks for the canopy at the top.  I used copy paper folded inside with my special note to him, and enclosed a check.

Here is the set I used:

I thought I'd share a picture of my grandson holding his card... and one with my daughter who is almost 5'8" standing next to him so you can see what I mean when I say... he's really growing up!  I'm so thankful to have such a wonderful family who love the Lord and are trying to live their lives for His glory!

Great card...I know just what you mean, I feel the same way, when I look UP into my tall Grandson's eyes, and wonder what happened to that tiny bundle that I used to hold in my arms (which seems like it happened yesterday...LOL) Time sure does fly.

I just bought this stamp, love the papers you used with it. Isn't it amazing how fast they grow.... and so good to hear your husband continues to improve!

Grace, I was going to comment yesterday after reading about your husband. My husband has blood clots, but in his heart, and has been on blood thinners for almost 20 years. You two have been through a lot with his job change and now this. It makes you realize how much we depend on the Lord for His mercy, and to be thankful for every single day. I always love your cards, and your thoughts. My grandson will be 16 this year, and is 6'1" tall. Grandkids are the best! Take care and thanks for sharing your heart!
