Hello!! I was finally able to get in my craft room and get this card finished. Our second grandchild is starting school tomorrow. Where does the time go! I can still remember the day he was born. It was in Alaska and the middle of winter. Very cold but it was an exciting time. Because then I had one granddaughter and grandson and now many more. I wanted to have this done so he would have it before he started off on this new adventure. I wish I could be there with you Cody when you head out to spread your independence. Sorry, Melissa I know it is going to be a little of a rough day for you. I think I went through it with each one of you. But it was a very exciting time!
I used PTI's Pure Poppy for the card base because that is his favorite color. A boy after my own heart. It is my favorite also. The writing paper I made myself. I stamped it with PTI's Journeling Lines and Faux Ribbon for the red line. The punch is from Stampin' Up! I wrote his name myself and the little sentiment by the bookworm. He had to have a gold star right? I punched it with a Marvy punch using gold paper. The worm is colored with Kooh-i-nor pencils. The rest of the supplies I won over at Moxie Fab World. I just thought those brads were perfect for school. I like th number 6 in the PP, it was already there and I just colored it in to make it darker (he will be 6 in a few months). Yes, Melissa they do grow up and faster than you would like them to. Look at you kids. ;) I can hardly believe that you guys are grown-up with kids of your own. But it has been a fun adventure and a lot of great memories!!
Cody, I am sorry that this is going to be late. I do hope you have a great day!! You will make everyone proud!! You are growing into such a fine boy and know you will go far. I think I had better go now before I start crying here myself.
Thanks for stopping by!!! Hope you have a few more projects for you. I have so many things going through my head right now.
