12 years old!!

well i just cannot believe it, but my aaron will be 12 years old next week!! where has the time gone?? as many of you know he has aspergers syndrome , so has his like and dislikes ~and playing with my parents two cats is one of his loves!!!.. also he loves bright colours ~especially when it comes to clothes!! (yes think i will be doing his clothes shopping for a bit longer!!) ~so this is why the theme and colours have been chosen for this card.
well had a look at all the challenges for this week and boy are there lots i could have done , but decided to do 4 challenges for this card ~well it has been a while since i got some crafting done!!
used the wonderful sketch over on SKETCH AND STASH ~used these kars stamps for the first time, these papers and stickers!! MY TIME TO CARFT ~theme this week is " kids kards", on CUP CAKE CRAFT ~the theme is "card for man or boy" and on CUTE CARDS" the theme is "letters and numbers" ~links to these challenges on my side bar.
used perfect paper collection papers, kars boy and cat stamps , magnolia book stamp and cuddlybuddly fluffy cat stamp, don`t know where i got the sheet of letters/numbers from, stamin`up scalloped edged punch, ribbon and vellum stickers from my stash, finished with a little glitter (around the edge of the letters/numbers).
gosh that was a long post!! hope you all have a fun weekend ..oh yes excitement... my whiff of joy spring stamp set has arrived this morning.. but i have no ez mount ~so need to get that ordered so i can play later this week!!

And congratulations with your son's birthday, Vanessa!

You've made a beautiful card for Aaron. And you've done a great job combining all the challenges :)

Tomorrow we'll celebrate our constitution-day here in Norway. It's really a big day for all of us, but especially the kids.

Have a great week-end. Lucky you who've got your new WOJ-kit already. I'm awaiting mine next week. Cross my fingers that it'll arrive on Monday :)

Hugs, Kristin :)
