Flying the nest

My son is on the brink of moving into his new home so thought I'd be prepared and make him a card for when he does. I know it won't make that much difference as I will still see him on a daily basis being his carer to help him meet his daily living needs but it will be a big step for him towards his independence and technically he will have flown the nest.


I decided I wanted to make a fun card not the usual new home card and thought this cute High Hopes stamps fit the bill perfectly. It is called dunno duck and as my son thinks I'm quackers at the best of times I couldn't use anything else.

I coloured him with promarkers and mounted the image on a fancy spellbinders circle which I wrote a sentiment around trying to keep it light hearted.


The papers are papermania and bits from my stash, the new home sentiment is LOTV stamped in brown ink, quite simple but I think it will make my son smile.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
jelly park-new beginnings
simply create too-anything goes
sugar creek hollow-something new
A gem of a challenge-something new
addicted to CAS-die cuts
papernest dolls-anything goes
A creative romance-something new
