Good Luck in Junior Year!

My son begins his Junior year today!  Where have the past 10 years gone to?  I made him a card that is totally out of the norm for me in that it's a cutesie kind of card for my 16 year old son! I was feeling a little down and decided to just have some fun instead and embrace the inevitable - he's growing up fast! So, I got these digi-stamps from Degital Delights, re-sized them to fit my 6.5" x 5" card, and put them together with some background papers from my stash.  I put Myrtle, the scholarly turtle, on an action wobble.  It's too cute!  Fortunately, my son saw the fun in this card too and told me that he liked it.

For the inside of the card I also used a digi-stamp. The sentiments are from my heart and computer generated to fit into the book frame.

And here is Myrtle, wobbling away :)
This card actually turned out very cute and I think I will make a similar one for my 5 year old nephew who is going to be starting "big school" in September.


  1. I love Myrtle! He's sooo stinking cute. I also like the action wobbles - they make ANY card fun.

  2. super cute card!!! they do grow up sooo fast
