It’s another dreary, rainy, blustery day here. It’s been raining nearly none stop all week. I am in serious need of some sunshine.
My grandson Cody turned 16 this week. Gosh it happened so fast, seems just days ago he was a little guy crawling around on my floor, now he is 6’ 2” and still growing. Funny kid, he knows I can’t get over how tall he is so he likes to put his arm around my shoulders, look down at me and smile. I’m 5’7” not exactly short but next to him I feel like a mouse.
Cody is learning to drive and needless to say he is mad about cars, in particular Ford Mustangs. I printed a Mustang and a seat belt buckle found on a Ford sales site. This is a tri-fold card. I used Labels Three to cut out my window and frame from mirror card. For my background I used strips of card mimicking the colors in the Mustang logo and mounted the car onto it. I used a bit more mirror card and the belt buckle as a closure. On the inside I used black ribbon to form a seat belt. I hope he gets the not so subtle hint. The Celebrate sentiment was die cut from more mirror card using a Cookie Cutter die. The Happy Birthday sentiment was computer generated.
