Video Boy

Good afternoon all.

It's done. My son left this morning around 10AM in his dad's car and drove towards his new and independent life. Did I cry??? You bet I did! I felt such a fool lol and I am remembering all the times my mum cried when I left (to Switzerland, USA and England). He called me a while ago - settled into halls and sharing a flat with 4 other students (each have their own room but share kitchen and lounge). He sounded fine hehe.

Well, it's blowing a gale here but at least it's dry so I have been washing and washing and washing and crafting so I have this to show you today ......

..... you can never have too many teenage cards. Used one of Mo Manning's fabulous illustrations and a little sketch from Clean and Simple. I did find that the card cardstock was missing something so I wrote various Xbox games on it. Had to ask my son James as I do not have a clue. I think it works rather well here :). Promarkers for colouring and I have cut out the image (something I really love at the moment). The card has been decorated inside. This card will be entered into the DP2 Challenge

Well, thank you all for visiting my space and enjoy your day. Hugs, Mette

Great job, Mette! And I sure can understand how you would feel saying goodbye to your son. Its so hard when the kids grow up. My daughter is only 13 and I was ok on her first day at school but really lost it at her first immunizations and dentist appointment. lol
Thanks so much for playing with us at Mo's!

Wonderful card! I love the game names...makes a wondeful background for that image! Glad you joined us in Mo's Challenge.

Godt de unge er i stand til at stå på egne ben, det er sådan det skal være. Så er vi forælder/mødre bare nødt til at finde os i at stå med lommetørklæderne parate!!
håber du får en OK weekend.
