Hi Everyone!

Tomorrow my baby boy (Brandon) is turning 17! I can't believe it, where has all the time gone, it's gone way too fast though, I know that for sure! 
The poor guy has an exam tomorrow & they don't celebrate Birthdays at the Military School he attends, so he will have to wait to celebrate when he comes home in March for Spring Break.

I didn't want the day to go by without anything though, so I baked him some brownies & sent them along with this card I made for him. Hopefully he will get them tomorrow, they were supposed to arrive today, but I haven't heard from him (not unusual though). I won't get into it now, but being a parent of a child who attends an away Military School is very hard!!! 

I'm hoping to get a serious laugh out of him on this card, because this is sooo not him!!!
Brandon is so physically active in sports like Football & Lacrosse & LOVES weightlifting! The girls are going to LOVE him, he's tall, handsome & has all the muscles! He doesn't know this yet, but when he is home this summer he is going to be my
I think it turned out really cute & am entering it in some challenges that are listed below. Love it when you have a card in mind & can find challenges that fit it so perfectly!
