My Eldest Son is 18 Today!!!!

Well, my eldest son is 18 today.  We bought him a joint present with his Nan and Aunt of a special driving experience of driving a Ferrari and an Aston Martin.  He's got a year to use it but already wants to work out when to go.

Both boys, their Nan, their Aunt and myself went into town to a restaurant for a cooked breakfast for an 18th birthday treat.  Then it was onto the mobile phone shop so he could get his contract Blackberry.  Lunchtime was a cream cake before he had to go into work - not good for the digestion after a cooked breakfast but thankfully it doesn't happen that often!!!

I took some hours making Kevin's card and used a wonderful digital image from CraftsUPrint by Gordon Fraser.  To be honest you would have thought he knew Kevin, even down to the bare feet!!!  I used my Cricut to cut out the "18" and "today" and used My Craft Studio to design the verse/backing sheet.  Please note:  the mirri card is as clean as anything but no matter what the camera didn't like it!!!

This card fits the following challenges:

Stamping Vacation - No brads or eyelets
Party Time Tuesday - Anything goes birthday
Pear Tree Designs - Male theme.
