Happy Birthday, Jordan!

Hi friends,
Today is a bittersweet day for me. Jordan, my little one, is officially a teen today. I had so much fun with him when he was a baby- there were always grins & giggles when he was around! While I've been down in the dumps thinking about how fast he's grown, he couldn't be happier to FINALLY be a teenager. It's been a time he's eagerly anticipated because with 13 comes lots of things we've said "No" to before, now we say "Ugh...OK": PG-13 movies, sitting in the front seat of the car, & ordering from the adult menu at restaurants.

Well, here's the card I made for him:
I tried to keep it basic- not too much stuff going on. I used the Die-namics Jersey and stamp set. I used my circle punch to make the football jersey look a little more basketball-y since that's the sport he plays. I stamped his name in Wild Wasabi & his age in Baja Breeze then I added the little basketball letter stickers. I colored the trim with my copics.

Here's a peek at the innies:
I crossed out the boy & added "teen." sniff...sniff...

I used this week's MFT sketch:
We'll be taking him to eat at Stacked after school. He really likes that place so that's where we're headed.
Thanks so much for peeking today!


  1. Hope Jordan has a really happy birthday and a great year. It is tough to see our "babies" growing up. Hope the teen years will go smoothly for you both!

  2. Happy Birthday, Jordan!

    Karli, fab card. Love the jersey.

    p.s. he'll always be your little boy.
