It's my baby's Birthday today and it's a very SPECIAL Birthday in anyone's life. I can't believe I am typing this, as it seems he was only born yesterday and today I have an old baby....LOL Boy, have we gone through a lot, and by that I mean, have we gone through a lot of beautiful milestones together. He is the joy of my life, I am so blessed to have him. My belief is that we each choose who's life we enter into when we are born, and I am just so grateful he chose me, I couldn't be luckier!
Yeah, we had the teenage years, and yes he was withdrawn into his cave trying to figure out who he is. But my ex said "just get him through the teenage years", and we did! So, if you have a teenager, just be patient, they do get over it.....LOL....I did, too, when I was a teenager after all. Than his dad decided to move away far and at 17 years of age, heavily into car racing at the promise of his dad that he would get him into racing, he left, but after 2 years, he realized all by himself, that he has different goals and today he is in college and pursuing to become a pharmacist, or a higher level nurse, or psychiatrist, well, really we don't know yet...LOL....but one thing I know, whatever he will decide to do, he will be GREAT at!!!! That I trust!
Today, my baby turns 21 and once again I am away from him...hehehe...it seems we have a hard time staying in the same neighborhood, but I baked him some cookies and shipped it to him and I know he loves those, and hopefully he will feel that I am there with him at least a little bit. Smiles..... And I wanted to share the sweet little card I made for him using some fun and cute My Favorite Things stamps, my latest addiction....hehehe.
I tried to make it as masculine I could and hope he didn't think it was too girlie, but he likes my cards, so I am sure it's good in his book. The papers I used are by Sassafrass. The MFT stamps and dies I used are
Die-namics Banner Day Die
Die-namics Textile Rectangle & Stamp Set
Die-namics Framed Greetings Die and Stamp Set sentiment
This time I decided to decorate the inside of the card, too and while the outside is more serious...the inside I wanted to be cute, so here it is.
Giggle....this image, makes me giggle, I soooo LOVE it. For the inside I used the following stamps:
Pure Innocence - Boy & Dog - Tree Swing
Pure Innocence - Birthday Princess sentiment
And part of my message to him in this card was, "You may have just turned 21, you are still my baby". Let's see how he likes that...hehehe.
Anyway, Shawn if you are reading this,
HAPPY 21st BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!!
LOVE YOU TO PIECES!!!
WISHING YOU ALL THE HAPPINESS!
