30th Birthday

My youngest son celebrated his 30th birthday this week. 
I can't believe that both my "kids" are in their 30's!! How does that happen?? 

Ian learned to surf when he was living in Halifax and now that he has moved back to Vancouver, he's continued to find some 'waves' on the west coast of Vancouver Island. I made a clean and simple card for him using Just Surfing (Stampin' Up) and a sentiment from Papertrey Ink: (Stylish Sentiments: Birthday).

Harvest  Gold + Summer Sunrise + Canyon Clay Surfboards

I found a Surfing Sticker in my craft room and wanted to incorporate it into a card. Framed Out #12 stamps/die were the perfect size to highlight Porky Pig!! The main sentiment and frame were stamped with Autumn Terracotta (Close To My Heart) and the small birthday sentiment was stamped with New Leaf ink.

Stamps - Stylish Sentiments: Birthdays;  Just Surfing (Stampin' Up);
Inks - Harvest, Summer Sunrise, Canyon Clay, New Leaf;  Autumn Terracotta (CTMH)

Great birthday card for your son! Beautiful! Yes, how can we have children that are in their thirties! Just yesterday that was my age.
