Another Happy Tuesday w/ Y&F H


Chase, from the Y&F H Back to School release has always reminded me of my son who has the same adorably pinchable cheeks and "puddin' face" grin. I  thought he would be perfect on a card for my son's 21st birthday...which is this coming Friday.

This is one of those cards that is much better in person. All of the blue stars were cut from glitter paper,  there's lots of pop-dots and texture, and I love how a layer of vellum mutes all the stamping behind the image. DP is from ATD's Textured Cardstock pad. The glasses were hand drawn.

Happy 21st Birthday Nico!
Our plan is to take Nico out to dinner and celebrate with family...grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins over the age of 21. I asked him....
Where do you want to go for dinner?
The Tilted Kilt
Ummmm, Mama and Papa are going too...can you think of a place more appropriate?
Alright, let's choose someplace together.
I want a big, juicy cheeseburger
It's Friday during Lent, it's not going to happen.
Get real, of course it's going to happen.
Do you think you're the only person turning 21 during Lent on a Friday?

Our compromise...stopping at The Tilted Kilt on our way home from dinner and having a drink at the bar. There's something about going to TK with your son that just isn't right?!! LOL!

I love it and I dread the day my son turns 21 with a grandmother that lives in Vegas. The card is Wonderful and happy birthday to your son.
