to B 14...


...do you remember when you were 14?  I do, it was mini-skirts and Yardley make-up...white lipstick.  I especially remember my 13th birthday as I got a new pocketbook (a Southern term for sure) and inside there were 13 new dollar bills.  I thought I was rich!  My DS, Andy turns 14 on Tuesday.  He's longing for a long board...over 10x's  $13's! But then that is what birthday's are for. 

I thought I would bust out a birthday card for him and make it fit the 365 Card Blog Saturday Challenge, to have everything front and center. I used my favorite pick-up truck image from B-Line Designs.  It was inked with ColorBox Raven Black onto DoubleMates merigold paper. I embossed it in clear ep and colored in the chrome bits with a silver gel pen. It is popped on foam mounting squares.I added an Andy name stamp, #14 rub-on's from Making Memories and the fab, "OH, Happy Day" (Wordsworth).
