Whenever I make an over the top, too elaborate card it means only one thing...it has to be an occasion for one of my sons. My oldest son graduated from college 2 quarters early and this is the card I made for him. Thst was my super big event for 2017.
This is a bendi card, but I added a third bend panel just because I never like to follow directions without a little improvising. Why do something the easier way when you can drive yourself crazy by adding a few more steps. The yellow car has hearts for following the road to happiness and love. The blue sports car has stuff to symbolize fun and adventure, and the truck has a bag of gold to symbolize success. On the back I wrote a note that I hope the roads he travels in the years ahead all lead to love and happiness, fun and adventure, and success. Come join us in Robin's creative F4A challenge. TFL, Francie

I love your special cards for your sons. I was just looking at one of them the other day, the one that has little hot air balloons. Those greens hills and sunshine make me want to be there, and your rainbow background is spectacular.

What a truly amazing card to make for your dear son. I love all the fun and colors you put into your cards and I really love the heartfelt meaning you put into the messages you add too. This is a card that exemplifies the saying, "Live Life Out Loud!" and I mean this as a wonderful compliment. I am so impressed! ~Karen.
