My Son.....the Rock Star!!
Hi everyone, well it's my baby's birthday tomorrow and I'm definitely feeling my age as my 'baby' will be 31! (I'm starting to think that my body actually knows this, as every muscle and joint is aching today, not a good sign!)
I've made this an 8"x8" card and put lots of 'bling' on it, just so it stands out as being from his Mum and Dad lol!
Making a card for Gareth is never an easy option as he isn't particularly interested in sport or computer games (normal 'fallbacks' for young, male cards) What he does have however, is a fabulous singing voice and a love of music. He sings with a band locally and they have just recorded their second CD (not that I'm a proud mum in any way you understand) Here's a photo of him at a memorial concert a couple of years ago.
This card is also dedicated to my lovely crafting buddy Ann, not only for the idea, with her brilliant card for her daughter's boyfriend (which I've copied quite blatantly because it was so fabulous!) but also because she even sent me the image and sentiment to use. She is going on my 'honours' list for a medal for stamping this image onto acetate, and persevering with it when it didn't want to know. How many times did you have to attempt this Ann? You're my hero!
In case some of you haven't visited Ann's blog 'Craftroom Creations' before (and if so, where have you been?) do pop over and take a look. I always come away from my daily visits totally inspired.
Thanks to everyone who sent me good wishes on my new DT role, I'm looking forward to seeing you all there on the 6th November.
