15 and Ready To Drive

Before I get going, I just want to say thank you all for following me and taking the time to make all of those wonderful comments! I have reached 100 followers!!!!!!!! I still can't believe it! I am in awe that people would even care about what I create, and that all of you are so talented and would even care to look. Thank you from the bottom to the top of my heart!
My first born has turned 15...oh my word, I don't like it! I miss those tiny baby feet, those sweet cooing sounds, the smell of baby lotion on his soft, sweet head. Oh the way he would rub my cheek when I fed him. Sigh! But alas, he is growing up, and is very eager to drive. A permit is now seen in his wallet, and every day he asks to be my chauffeur...I like that part! Here is the card I made for my 'Sonshine'.
Isn't this stamp set perfect for a beginning driver??? This is the background of the card. I also altered the date from 1779 to 1997...perfect that is worked that way! I was so excited to give him this card, and he just loved it and gave me a huge hug! I am sure he will treasure it always!
 
Supplies:
Uchida Marvy: red pigmented marker
From My Stash: white, blue, and kraft cardstock, snaps


I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!

  4. This is just so totally cool, Anita. I love the way you stamped your background with the sentiments on the textured paper. And the way you altered the license plate - awesome! I'm sure your son loved it! My youngest is 23 - glad those first days of driving are behind us!!!

    Hugs,
    Linda

  9. Your guy is only 6 months older than mine, so you are scaring me! I do love your card, especially the cut out car and awesome driver. What a totally fun memento for him of this very special time in his life! May all your rides be smooth ones with your chauffeur at the wheel.
