Throwback Thursday #8

Hey everyone! How are you all? I sure hope you are having a great day. Okay, so Emma over at My Creative Time is having a challenge and it couldn't have come at a better time. She asked us to do a birthday card and use an older cartridge.
Well lucky for me my baby boy (tears) is turning 8 in 4 days! WOOHOO HIM!!!! I am so thankful for my little guy; when he was born he had a rare illness and his little tummy wouldn't work. So after emergency surgery and days and days of hospital trips they figured out what was wrong and fixed him up. Now he is a healthy 7 going on 8 year old. Who...mind you just asked us for an ipod for his birthday. Long gone are the days when he loved Spider man, he is now enamored with The Twilight Saga lol thanks to mom. Either way here is his card! Have a fabulous weekend my blogging buddies.




What was used:
Cricut- Beyond Birthdays, Paisley cricut cartridges
Paper- It was all random paper that was picked up from here and there. But the pattern paper is tindlywinks
white gel pen-Peachy Keen Stamps
Brads- Stampin Up
Black Marker- Martha Stewart
Adhesive- Tombow and pop dots
Also I'm planning on putting a tiny picture of him as a baby in the ipod lol!

    I know exactly how you feel. My oldest turned 9 in March and he also asked for an ipod for his Birthday. (He got a blue one.)It made me so sad to realize how big he's getting and just how fast...sigh. :)
