Grandson's Birthday Card

Thanks to Terrie, I managed to do my Grandson, Luke's, 18th birthday card.
I happened to visit her gorgeous blog today and found the inspiration for this card here!


The sentiment is a bit hard to read as my photographic skills aren't all that brilliant.

It says...

'There are souls in this world
who have the gift of finding Joy everywhere
and of leaving it behind them when they go'.

He is the kind of young man who doesn't find it 'uncool' to see his Nanna (me)in the street

and give her a big hug and a kiss, bless him. He's a lovely young man.

I've used lime green CS matted with Basic Grey's 'Scarlet's Letter' DP.

Faux stitched the sentiment matt and stamped with 'Souls in this World' by Verses Rubber Stamps.

(That's what it says on the stamp anyway). Ink is Fluid Chalk Eyes 'Chestnut Roan'.

The '18' was cut using my Cuttlebug and the metal 'L' Initial tag and frame is from a PaperMania set.

Must go and check out CCT now for another challenge!
