For those about to rock............

we salute you!!
Today's card is for my rock music loving 4th Son, Chris who's
 16 today!!!! Where have the years gone......doesn't seem like 
2 minutes since he was born......on the settee at home!!!
Here's a pic......he's the one on the left!
He's funny, kind, clever, loves acting & cooking, is music mad
.......and has a maths exam this afternoon :( !
Happy Birthday Chris..........we love you!
So for his card I just had to use the fab paper from the DCWV
Rockstar range, no image just some words from
a song by one of his fave bands......AC/DC, some die cut
bunting and some brown card.....hope he likes it!
This pic is of the 2 newest members of our family.....
my 2nd Son, James came home with these 2 little kitties
yesterday.....that's Shadow on the left & Syn on the right!
Poor little things had not been cared for very well and
they'd been kept in a shed day & night. So they've been fed,
 cleaned up, brushed, wormed and look so
much better although under all that fluff & fur they are just
skin & we just need to get them to sleep lol!
They haven't closed their eyes once since they came!
Rightio, off to make Birthday cake....thanks for calling,
hope your days' a good one!
Hugs Jo x

  10. Great card... and as an Aussie I'm glad to see that there are Acker Dacker fans out there in the younger set :-) My youngest son is called Chris too, (his middle name is James!!) and he's funny kind and clever as well - perhaps it's in the name :-) Hope he has a lovely birthday (my Chris turns 28 on 24th November) Thanks for joining the Die Cuts and Punches challenge at Here Come The Boys, good luck and hope to see you next time too.

  13. Hi Jo, fabulous card there - perfect for teen boys, wouldn't know how to make a card for a teen boy (or girl come to that!) myself. Great picture as well.

    But, oh my, look at those kittens!! Awwww, don't you just want to snuggle them right up!!! Poor things to have been treated so badly - some people shouldn't be allowed to have animals. They have fallen on their feet finding you.

    Have a great weekend,

  14. What a great card for a guy! Thanks for playing along with us at Kaboodle Doodles this week.

  15. Great card for a man

    Thanks for joining us at Cards for Men

  16. Happy belated birthday Chris! Great card Jo. Spot on for a teen male, and we all know how difficult they are to design for.

    Love your little memory about him being born on the sofa. I'm intrigued do you still have the same sofa?
