You're Only As Old As You Feel

It's Saturday! Woo-Hoo! Looks like it's going to be a gorgeous weekend here with temps in the high 70's. That's PERFECT for our outdoor birthday party this Sunday at our house! Our  special needs baby girl, Bonnie, is going to be 19 next week, but we are having the family and grandkids over this weekend for a cookout and birthday cake. I'm so thankful for the beautiful weather we are going to have!

We have four children, but our son has a best friend he's had since high school named Ed. Ed has always called me mama and now that he's married with 3 kids of his own, his wife, Lisa, calls me mama too. I love it. Ed's birthday was a couple of days ago, so we are going to celebrate his birthday along with Bonnie's on Sunday.

Remember that Napkin Fold birthday card I made our son a couple weeks ago? Well, Ed said he wanted a birthday card with that fold too. :)

I learned how to make this Napkin Fold with Dawn's YouTube video. Please refer to that for all the instructions. You can find it... HERE

Here  is the one I made for Jimmy... blog post for it... HERE.

And here's the one I made for his best friend, Ed...

No, Ed is not a farmer, but he does work at the Michelin plant and make huge tires. I just wanted to make him a card that had big tires on it, and seeing this tractor made a bell go off in my head saying, "Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner!"  LOL

I used my CAMEO for all the cuts. The SVG files are from various sites. The tractor is an SVG file, but instead I used it as a PRINT AND CUT. (Love this feature!)

Cardz TV Stamps "Good Times" for the sentiment which was stamped in CTMH "Topiary."

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a fun weekend! :) Janis
