Amazed.

Before I get to my card, I have a quick 30 second video for you.  Ryan had a solo last night in his normal choir concert.  I am more proud that you can ever imagine.  He sounded great (had a little laugh together about the last note.)  WOW, WOW, WOW!  14 years old standing up in front of a full auditorium of classmates and all their families.  Way to go Ryan!! (ps thanks to Jonathon for taking the video...I was busy shaking with nerves while I watched Ryan!)

Now my card...the lovely ladies over at a Passion for PaperTrey have a Color Pop Challenge.  Immediately, I thought of my new PTI set.  I love color pop challenges too and it is a great set to use as it has two stamps to layer perfect for this type of challenge.  And...it's also an entry for the current CAS-ual Fridays challenge to get sentimental.   So there you have it...a quick CAS birthday card!

  6. Kudos to Ryan! You must have been one proud mama listening to him. My daughter does one dance recital each year and I'm in tears each time she gets on stage. I can't even imagine how full your heart must be watching your son perform a solo!

    Your card is fantastic, Lynn! Love the super CAS design.

Hey, all great singers have the first video they'll show when they hit it big...I think this one will be Ryan's!! When's the next solo?
