Crafty Gals May Challenge Card
Good Morning Friends & Happy Saturday!
Today is May 5th & that means it's Crafty Gals Challenge time!!!!! Our hostess this month is Tracie & she challenged us to make a card to celebrate those who love us. We also had to make sure that our creations have at least 3 layers, used 2 embellishments & 1 sentiment.
I decided to make a card for my son Reginald who's in the Navy. I know my son loves me through our many talks & text messages and the fact that he still asks for advice in his life from the *mean woman* speaks volumes for our relationship! On the day of his graduation from Boot Camp, he thanked me & told me how much he loves me for raising him to be such a strong young man. I miss him terribly but it comforts me knowing that he's doing so well in school--he's top of his class--& that life is so great for him! He's following his dreams & he's happy.....what more could a Mom ask for?!! I love my son with all my heart & I wish him only the best in his life & future!!!
I kept his card simple...as simple as I can make a card LOL....& used masculine colors--whisper white, basic gray & lucky limeade along with the Sail Away stamp set. My finishing touches were the ribbon & bling....can't make a card without bling even a masculine one! Reggie always enjoys every card I send to him so I'm sure he's going to like this one too!
Please take the time to check out the rest of the Crafty Gals creations & leave them some love:
