A Birthday Card for a Birthday Boy

Today is my middle son's birthday and he is now 11 years old. My golly time does go so fast, I can even remember vividly the early morning when he decided to make his entrance in such a big rush. I reckon that's why he can never walk anywhere, always runs!!!

As always I have been busy making lots of other projects and cards but left his birthday card until yesterday to make!! After much deliberating I finally came up with this:-

He absolutely loved it and told me it was "wicked", I presume this means he liked it!!!

Now I can't take the credit for this idea and I was inspired by this lovely creation by the equally lovely and talented Teneale Williams and you can find her card here, which I did change a bit to make it more "boyish". I loved Teneale's card so much when I first spied it on her blog and set myself a challenge to give it a go. Even though I enjoyed making this card for my son I don't think I will be in a hurry to reproduce it.

Hopefully I will get around to some more card making over the school holidays and will have some more cards to share with you.

Happy stamping,
