As you know, until frighteningly recently, I had no idea what I wanted to make for my son's 13th birthday card. That's not quite 100% true - I had a few little ideas. I wanted to use this tank stamp that I purchased (and altered) from DeNami designs (chicks aren't his thing - at least not the little fluffy kind!). And of course, he and his friends played paintball for most of the day on Saturday, so that's another theme I wanted to go with.
Then Sunday came, the day of Splitcoaststamper's Featured Stamper challenge. Laura O'Donnell was the chosen one this week. I scanned her gorgeous gallery, hoping against hope that she had made the perfect card for my son. Not a tank or paint splatter in sight (but many, many beautiful cards!).
When I found this one, I loved the ring of birds. Hmmm. A ring of tanks? Laura, I'm SO SORRY!
I'm happy with his card and I know he will be too. Despite being a teen-age boy with every gross and annoying thing that comes with that, he's also one of my biggest fans and gets excited when I get a new follower on my blog or win an award for a card.
Happy Birthday, Struan! And "Many Tanks", Laura!
