My Grandson is Turning 16 this week!

Good Morning Stampers,

I spent all of yesterday...well almost, making this card for my firstborn grand-child. He's a good kid, but  has so much to learn in the "real world." I love him to pieces and pray for him everyday. I pray for all the adolescents of today. They have a rough road ahead of them, like no other before in my opinion.
So Greg has his driver's permit and is coming along great with his skills. He loves the Cake Boss series, so we have cupcakes. What's a card without balloons and he lives for basketball. This card is called a Pop-up Matchbox card. You can find a tutorial on-line https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gq38N76YOrQ. This tute is from Elizabeth Dyson, an SU demo. There are others. I found hers the easiest for me to follow. It's a bit time-consuming, but the results are super fun. I hope you'll considering giving it a try.

Greg loves my 3D cards and told me he saves them all. WOW! Coming from a teen boy, I'm impressed.

I'm entering this into my team's challenge no. 66 http://simplycreatetoo.blogspot.com/2014/07/challenge-66-for-child.html   For a Child.
Sorry about the long link. Blogger is not letting me change it.
Have a Blessed Day.
