Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen

I don't have that many House Mouse stamps, not because I don't like them though as the ones I do have are lovely, and a lot of them bought with specific people in mind.

The stamp I have used today is case in point, I saw the image and immediately thought of Colin.  Granted I have had the stamp for about a year and never used it, but I knew, it's day would come...and today is that day!


The stamp is called Computer Tutors - not that Colin would ever need one of those - he is defo the tutor in this house and I think that would be him standing on the jug, not believing how thick I can be when it comes to all things computers.  Many is the time he's said, "Mam, you can do this already, I showed you last time."  To which I reply, "Show me again" and so he does it for me, again!

Anyway he will be 16 mid-feb so this card is for him.  Colouring by Promarker & the papers are Lilybee Design, Memorandum.

This is a fabulous card for a young adult (that's what my son said he was at 16 - I'm not quite sure I would agree with him sometimes). I love House Mouse and this is a great image - your layout is just right for a male.
Have a great weekend.
