Happy Birthday Wishes

This the card I made for my son's Birthday. The image so reminded me of his teenage years  when he would get so involved in the moment! He is still like that but calms it down a bit, and he and his friends still have video game tournaments for his birthday and still practice ahead of time, so a lot hasn't changed. They are now 25 and 26 year old's.  This will be my son's 25th and it is so hard to believe how fast the time traveled since his birth.  There is no way he can be that old and yet he is:O)! Love him dearly!

  22. Fabulous male card Glenda. I just adore that image. Have met me a few chaps like this in my time. I had to ban my ex from using the computer (which was in the lounge) when our Daughter was still awake as his language used to get really bad if the game beat him!


  23. That is actually so awesome that they still act like "boys" now that they're men. Perfect image and the burlap fits in so well. I hope he has a wonderful birthday. My oldest will be 7 this year, and yes, it goes by too fast.
