Happy Saturday! I have a Verve card to share today using this week's Viva la Verve Sketch! Charmaine is the host!
For my card today I needed a birthday card for my baby boy! Except, he is not a baby anymore. He has technically not been a baby for a long time. However, today, he becomes a teenager! WOW! The Big 13! Where did the years go? I am still having a hard time believing it. It seems like just yesterday he was just toddling around. So, here is my very "manly" card for my little guy who is actually taller than me already! Have A Happy Happy 13th Birthday, my son!
Stamps Happy Days and Small Celebrations
Paper PTI vintage cream, The Paper Company kraft, PTI true black, Echo Park Times and Season
Ink PTI scarlet jewel and ocean tide, Ranger brushed cordoroy and walnut stain, Memento tuxedo black
Accessories Spellbinders, foam tape, glue dots, PTI fine linen button, seam binding, stitched ribbon, corrugated cardboard(recycled),MFT numbers die, baby bracelet beads, Verve's Cut Above Charming Banner die

This is just the perfect card for a 13 year old boy!! Hope your son had a lovely birthday - and yes, they do grow up to quickly, hey! My own son is also turning 13 in a few days' time and I just might try to make a similar kind of card for him - I just doubt that mine will be as stunning as yours, but i'll give it a try!

I sure know how you feel. My " baby " just turned 17 and is gradding in a couple weeks ( which reminds me I will need to do a grad card...:0)..).. I too wonder where it went and am sad already. having to cut more strings. This tho is a perfect young mans card...love the papers you used and the rich colors. works so well with the great style...TFS..:0)
