Happy Birthday, Wesley!

Today is my Wesley’s birthday!  He is such an amazing young man.  He’s been working at a local grocery store chain for about a year, and he’s already been promoted several times and gotten many raises.  He’s very responsible, dedicated and reliable.  I’m so very proud of him – and of Jon.  I don’t know how Mike & I did it, but we raised two very incredible boys.

Wesley said he had a great day, and we celebrated his birthday the weekend before Mike & I left.  I also promised to do something when we get back.  (It’s a Mom guilt thing.  I know he’s an adult, but it’s the first birthday I’ve missed.)  I’m glad he had fun.  I know my mom had the boys and Steph (Wesley’s girlfriend) over for dinner tonight and bombarded them with pictures of Mike & me when we were young.  Great.

Meanwhile, Mike & I had lunch with some of his friends, a wonderful Russian couple, John & Olga.  They took us to a Thai restaurant, and we had a terrific time getting to know them a little better.  I thought I’d make them a thank you card for the lunch and slip it in the mail before we leave.

Stamps:  Kindness Matters; Ink:  Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Soft Suede classic; Midnight Muse, Cajun Craze, Soft Suede stampin’ write markers; Paper:  Comfort Cafe designer series paper; Summer starfruit, Very Vanilla card stock; Other:  Designer Frames embossing folders, Big Shot, Pool Party seam binding ribbon, stampin’ dimensionals

This card was inspired – well, it was more than inspired.  It was CASEd – by a card by Patti Dolatowski of Lake Zurich, Illinois.  I changed paper, colors, ribbon and orientation.  I love the soft colors in the designer series paper. It’s a new pattern in the 2012-13 catalog called “Comfort Cafe’.”

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day.
