A quick post today to share with you a card that I made for my son's 14th birthday today. Yeah, I know it's a little childish for a 14-year old, but he loves dogs...and animals in general, and I am a little short on dog images that are more adult-themed. He really loves it and never mentioned that it looked too childish. This young man has had a rough time of it for many years and is still struggling through many medical issues. I wanted to make a fun card for him that would make him smile. He is still undergoing many tests and has had a couple of diagnosis right now that he will require treatment for for the rest of his life. This is actually a blessing though that there is treatment. The one that we are trying to dodge right now is cancer. If we can be cleared of cancer of his thyroid, I think we will ALL breathe a sigh of relief!! We hope that he can enjoy his special day today and that it will leave him with happy memories.
I used some wood paper from McMahon Five Designs inside and out on this card. The inside pocket is made from wood paper as well as the fencing. I have also embossed and punched onto the papers. I've always loved the wood paper on masculine cards. It adds so much to the look.
Hugs and Blessings,
