A card for Cameron....

.......another Birthday......another cake.......I really will have tostart 
that diet next week.......after yet another Birthday!!!!
Today it's my Son, Camerons, 19th Birthday....where have the 
years gone?? He's a very quiet, calm person who loves a good 
book and a nice cup of tea and dreams of owning his own, dusty
 secondhand book store.....only thing is, I don't think he'd want to
 sell any  books!! So for my card for him, I tried to make it look
 old & dusty!!It's his fav stamp of mine and I've stitched and 
torn and inked and tea bagged....you name it, I've had a go on this 
card....hope he likes it!

  25. This a fabulous!
    Any bookish person would treasure this card. The image is so cute and whimiscal and the way you distressed the paper and the embellies, is fantastic!

    I is fun to learn about your family from the birthdays cards you make them. Each child so different from the next, as it should be.
