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!
