*Happy St Patrick's Day*

I hope you all remembered to put on something green today...  I found it a great excuse to break out my green spring/summer cardigan over a white t-shirt.... I sure looked like spring today!

Today is also an important day in our house as 14 years ago today our son Matthew was born!  I can't believe my baby is 14!!!!  We did his big birthday dinner with family and friends on Tuesday and I'm making him meatloaf (his choice!) for dinner tonight.  Tomorrow a few of his friends are coming over to hang out and eat and have cake and play video games.  Sounds like a good birthday to me!

Sadly, my card today has nothing to do with Matthew, the #14 or green.... but it is a birthday card LOL

Happy Birthday to your son.
Nice card. I really like that you didn't put everything squared up. I have trouble doing that, Ya I have a problem, teehee.

Happy Birthday to your son! What a great day, I had 2 friends give birth today too (Mar 17th).

Your card is fabulous! I love the patterned panels and the off kilter focal images.

Also I wanted to say sorry for not seeing your comment earlier. I'm so sorry to hear about your mom.
I still get a little teary at times when I'm crafting (well lots of times actually!)

Take care,
