The Big 50

This birthday card is for my son who is turning "The Big 50" this month. It is hard for me to believe. It seems only yesterday we were growing up together. My husband and I got married when we were children so my kids and I have always said we raised one another. He is a son to be proud of. Both of my children have really stood by me since my husband's death. I love them dearly.

I used Kraft paper for the card base. I embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder (don't know the name). Then added swatches of SEI Moravia paper. The word "the" was cut from Mini Monograms cartridge. The word "big" was cut from Ashlyn's Alphabet cartridge. I added some embellishments and a "50". The "50" is from a Thickers Alphabet I purchased at Big Lots. They have them at Hobby Lobby. I then added some pen stitching for an added touch.

My son works with computers so I thought it would be fitting to work a computer into this theme somehow. I cut the computer from the Locker Talk cartridge. I can still write a message on the inside.

Thank you for stopping by our little section of the web. We love your comments and visits. God Bless You!!! Peggy
