16!

Hi Everyone!

Hope you all are having a great Valentines!  My sweetie surprised me with a pink frosted doughnut with heart sprinkles, so I was a happy camper.  He's also going to make me dinner tomorrow night since we both weren't up to eating much tonight.

I made this card for my youngest who will be 16 on Wednesday (I can't believe how the time just flies)!  Since he is away at school I sent it along with a care package of goodies that he can share with all of his friends.  He'll be home at the end of this month for a visit, so we can do the grand celebration then!

I have to say, I had a really hard time coming up with a card idea for him, I'm still not sure if I made the right choice, it may be a little too cutesy for him. It has nothing to do with the fact that I don't want him to grow up any more than he already has...LOL..yeah that's it.  Since I was having such a hard time coming up with an idea, I turned to a few challenges for some inspiration (I'll list them below)  I hope he likes it, even if it is a bit too cute!  :0)  Let me know what you all think.


One of my goals this year is to enter more challenges and when blogger or website lets you use your card for more than just their challenge it makes life a little easier.  So this card is being submitted for the following challenges (in alphabetical manor):
