Happy 13th Birthday Alex!!!!

Well . . .13 years ago today, I became a mother, and it was love at first sight. It is so hard to believe that my "baby" is 13 and is now a teenager. Wow, how time flies!  I wish you nothing but the best Alexander and may God bless you as you enter this new phase in your life. Have a wonderful birthday!!
It has been awhile since I really made a masculine card, but I am pleased with how Alex's birthday card turned out. I was inspired by a couple of the challenge blogs, but I will come back later today to post supplies and the challenges I would like to enter this card into. I just wanted to get this photographed and posted before I gave it away. I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and thanks for stopping by. I hope your weather wherever you are is better than what we were surprised with yesterday . . . you guessed it . . . a huge amount of really wet, heavy snow. Anyhoo, I best get a couple of hours of shuteye before I have to get up to make a special b-day breakfast!!
