Catching up: 16...where did the time go???

I have been so caught up in the holidays, dental appointments, helping DS with school that I have not blogged in awhile.  So, to catch you up...

Earlier this month, my baby turned 16!?!  How crazy....it has definitely gone by too quickly!  I am proud of the independent, caring and strong young man he is.   He didn't want a party for his birthday, just a small family celebration and then a few friends over.  For the family celebration I made him a chocolate cake with peanut butter cream frosting.  That butter cream was soooo yummmy!  He loved it.  

I decided to make him a silly card... 
I used a sticker I have had for quite some time, Animal from the Muppets.  I wanted to frame him, but not anything conventional so....I cut a circle out and then rolled back the edges to form an opening in the paper for him to be coming through.  I like the effect.  Silly, but simple card.

I hope that you are having a wonderful day!
Marie

That is a very creative accent on the circle! Congrats on your DS 16th. My baby DD is 16 too.

Very cute card. It's good to be silly and do silly things especially in our serous world today.
Love it.

That's the trouble with time, Marie. You blink and it's gone. My grandma says that the older you get the faster time flies and I'm beginning to experience exactly that. Adults tell us when we're young not to wish our lives away (I can't wait until I'm 10, or 16, or 18, or 21 . . . ). I don't want to go backwards, but I sure do wish this mid-life would slow down.
You have every reason to be proud of Jarek. He is the man you have made him to be and is what any parent should wish for-a good person. Just don't blink or you'll be where I am, cuddling your grandchild, and wondering again where the time went.

I love it! Animal is my favorite muppet. I've loved and adored him since the 70's. Great way to "roll it back!" from BIF...

Cute card Marie and I love the effect of Animal bursting through the front. I bet your son got a kick out of it too.
They do grow up way to fast don't they?
