My second son has just said good bye to his teen years, not that I expect much to change.  I still expect him to ignore his untidy bedroom, his studies etc.  Luckily he's really clever and too sweet to ever really get angry with.  

I bought the Poppy Stamps Stunning Spectacles with him in mind as he wears the Buddy Holly Ray-Ban Wayfarer specs.  I didn't leave myself much time to make this card and it came together by itself.  A friend of mine gave me a bunch of paper stacks for looking after her cat during the Christmas break so I went through them and found an appropriately masculine plaid.  I cut a few pairs of specs and was going to remove the inner piece when I thought the sunglasses looked way cooler and the plaid began to look like pjs (which is what he wears much of the time) and this is where I ended up.   

The sentiment was computer generated using the Almonte Snow font which I filled in with puffy snow marker.  His older brother appreciated the twist on the inside,

I'm entering this card in the current Seize the Birthday challenge, the current Male Room challenge and Cardz4guyz challenge 101.

Thanks for stopping by, especially if you take the time to leave a comment,
