Like totally awesome, dude!




Great boy card, right? *chuckle* 
My boys love getting cards from me, and they know it is a special occasion if they do. I made this one for my oldest, 11, who tried out for the spring musical at his school, Annie Jr. He had to sing a song, perform a dance, and recite some lines from the the show. We don't know yet if he got a part, but I wanted him to know he was awesome anyway, even if he didn't. *wink*

Using some more PP from my stash makes me feel good, and it was one of my papercrafting resolutions this year. This is from Basic Grey's Obscure collection. I also used several stamps from a new set I purchased from WPlus9 Design Studio! It's called So 80s and I love, love, love it! 

I used four stamps on this card, although it doesn't look like it. The "awesome" was stamped on acetate, heat embossed with black e.p. and trimmed so I could hang it over the edge a bit.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a fantastic Friday!
*mwah*
