We are celebrating our son David in the early days of October with a family dinner and outing. He set a goal 10 years ago that he is proud to say he has achieved, and the family wants to take time to tell him that we are proud of him for knowing he needed to set the goal, sticking to it, and achieving it! He tells me he has set new goals for the years ahead. . .again, good for him!!
We should all take time just to say to our loved ones every now and then how proud we are of them and happy to have wonderful times to spend together as a family and just enjoy each others company. It says loud and clear. . ."Hey, I love you, I enjoy you, and love to be in your company! Thanks for being here for me, too!"
I decided I wanted to use the My Favorite Things t-shirt die again and settled on using a couple of stamps that are companions to this die; the saying, You Rock and a lightning bolt. I embossed the stamp prints with gold and black and used a red shimmer cardstock for the T-shirt. Various Graphic 45 patterned papers worked in beautiful with the masculine theme and the color combinations. Below is the final design I came up with. I know David will like his t-shirt card and probably wish he had a t-shirt just like it that he could actually wear!
