Enjoy the Hop. Come on back tomorrow for more creative fun!!

I used Paper Doll Chuck to make a masculine card. I made it with a special guy in mind. That guy would be my 16 year old son. I took a page out of a local phone book for the restaurants. I scanned it and printed it on cardstock for the background. I stamped Time's Running Out. I masked the sentiment and stamped the pocket watch over it and added the Can you spare some time for little ol' me. Those three stamps are from 3 of MFP stamp shop's mini sets. I can't believe how fast time is going by. I know that my time with my son at home is getting less each day. I am going to use this card to ask him out on a date. He might dress up like this for our date, because he loves to wear suits. He has worn suits to school just because he wanted to, not just for special occasions.
This is a collage of his photos from newborn in top left corner, to Sophomore year with his friends after winning first place at a show choir competition this spring. He is the one on the left in the suit.
I am proud of the man he is becoming. Just this summer a friend from church was injured and unable to use his hand so my son offered to mow his lawn for him. My son has a quiet servant heart and he has a quirky sense of humor.
