..as special as you are!

today i am showing another birthday card i have made for my son Aaron, who will be 13 very soon~this one will be from us (mum and dad) and the card below (posted earlier in the week) will be from his little brother > as they both have a thing about chocolate ~don`t know where they got that pleasure from???

for this card i used the fab sketch over on SWEET SKETCH#49 (all links on my side bar)

ABC ~U is for "UNUSED STASH " ~ have found so much i have in my crafting cupboards/shelves to be used!!! ~but have never seen the light of day ~value pack of boys papers, my first ever lotv stamp, some wired shapes ~not so bad is it using them???? what was i frightened of???

FAB `N FUNKY#23 ~ "metal mania" ~ ( wired star and brad)

CUPCAKE #90 ~"buttons" ~just love buttons especially on male cards~more the better!!

CUTE CARD THURSDAY#112 ~ " someone special" ~who can be more special than my son Aaron ~especially with all he has been through at school for the last 5 months.

used doodlebug teen boy paper, lili of the valley oliver stamp, elzybells wording stamp, rectangle nestabilities dies, buttons, wired star, brad, thread and star stamp from my stash ~bit of glitter.

hope you are having a great day ~nearly the weekend ~ i now must get on and post this and get down to arranging some school visits for Aaron and myself for next week, just hope we can find a good , kind school in our area, with good teaching staff who understand the complex asperger syndrome!!!..... and a space for him???
