Dude - Be Your Own Guy

Good afternoon crafty friends.

It was my Son's 10th birthday yesterday.  Where have the years gone. This is the card I made for him.

I used this sketch..


This is a rubber stamp I already own and I coloured this in with ProMarkers.  The two sentiments on the image came with the stamps.  My other sentiment is computer generated.

  1. This is gorgeous Michelle. Where do the years go? I bet you can remember the day he was born.

  2. Hi Michelle,
    what a fab card for a 10 year old, and by the way Happy Birthday to him.
    Your colouring of that fab image is wonderful, as is your design.
    Now you are making me feel old as I have a Grandson who turned 12 early this month, and my youngest Son is 45. LOL.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
