Shhhh!! Jason will be 30 soon!!!

This is my card for the WT challenge on SCS which was to use numbers on our cards.

Well.....my oldest nephew, Jason, will be 30 next month!!! That is so hard for me to wrap my head around. For a good part of his life we lived next door to each other or in a shared home. So, since I never had children, he is very much like a son to me (although my sister would claim otherwise....lol)!! He now lives in North Carolina, has been married for over two years, and really is enjoying a good life with a fabulous wife, wonderful friends, travel, and work he seems to love. However, next month I do plan to enjoy (picture a wicked grin on my face here) the celebration his 30th birthday, even if it will be over the distance.

As to the card....well I used an image by Stamping Bella. I used a piece of the striped panel designer panel as the stripes on the shirt. When Jay was younger he was very fussy about what golf shirts he would wear...stripes were okay as long as they weren't too big or bold.

The sentiment was computer generated. The inside finish is......"It is all downhill from here!!"

Anyhoooooo.....we have a crisp, cool, but sunny day today here in Connecticut. Hope you enjoy your day in your little corner of the world.

What a fabulous masculine card Joanne. Jason will treasure it I'm sure. I do feel sorry for him though. That wicked grin scares me and I've only had just a little taste of your orneriness. I can only imagine his trepidation since he knows you only too well!!! *grin*
