My baby turned 21!!!!

Good morning!!!!

Well, it is Wednesday and I didn't get a chance to post yesterday. It was my youngest son's birthday and he turned 21. Boy oh boy did that make me feel old!!! It was a day of happiness and tears. It's so hard to watch these little boy's grow up and become men. Now don't get me wrong..... It is a joy to see what wonderful young men they are turning into. But where oh where does the time go???

The card that I am posting today is a birthday card that I made for him. And yes I know it's a tad cutsy (is that a word?) for a 21 year old boy. It was made for him with all of my heart and a few tears in the process. He will treasure it always as he does everything that I make for him. On the inside on the left side I wrote a little some that did put a tear in the whole families eyes as it did bring back some memories of the wonderful years gone by. Oh yea I guess I should let you that the reason it does say Toad on the card is because that is his nickname and has been his whole life. My boy that is just a year older than he couldn't not say his name right and it always came out as Toad so it stuck!!! So of course I had to put a frog (toad) on the card as they are his favorite little things also. Weird isn't it?? Okay back to the card... I will be posting this card up for 2 different challenges today. First over at SKETCH SATURDAY for challenge #51 with the wonderful sketch. I truly love this sketch. Very easy to get all of your paper arranged so that they can be seen with a bit of flair. Second it will be posted over at Spoon Full of SUGAR challenge number #48. The challenge over there is buttons Galore and I have 4 buttons on this card.
Wishing you all and very wonderful Tuesday and I will hope to see you all tomorrow with a new card.
