Racey Birthday

 THIS is the card that I made for Geoffrey for his birthday this year. And no, he did not get a car for his birthday :) He will get to drive a family vehicle until he can buy his own :) Inside the card, I wrote "Sorry Geoffrey, you are not getting a sports car for your birthday, but I know if you want one, you will get one someday!" There was some other mushy mom and dad stuff in there too that I won't bore you all with. I just figured this would be a good theme for a 17 year old.

There are a couple of new/returning things on this card, along with a retiring set... sad. I just got this set a couple months ago and am just getting around to using it! The yellow paper is Crushed Curry, and I like it much better this time around than I did when it was an In-Color a few years ago. I don't know why I didn't like it back then! And the punch with the sentiment is new, called Artisan Label.

Perfect card for a 17 year old. Just hope he wasn't too disappointed that he got a card with a sports car on it and not the sports car. :)

Great card! Love the doodling and faux stitching. Great colors, too!

Great guy card - for any age! Alas… most would want the keys to go with it. :)

p.s. I'm with you on the Crushed Curry this go-round; I wonder if it has something to do with the overall changes in the color line.
