My Baby is 6!!!

No great man is ever born too soon or too late. -George Norman Douglas
Today is my sweet baby boy's 6th birthday! I can't believe how fast he has grown! I am so super proud of him. He is a bright, kind, loving child and is a joy to be around! He is excels at reading, loves learning new things and floors me with his ability to work out things around him. If he is confused by something that happens, something he sees or something someone says he thinks about it, twists it around in that amazing brain of his and comes up with a logical explanation...Well, logical to him anyway! ;)

I made this card to stick in his lunch box today along with $6...I think he will be excited. :) The image is another fun one from Mo's Digital Pencil...I love her artwork!!! The paper is some older Basic Grey and My Mind's Eye papers I have had for Ages...I colored it with Copics and added some stickles to bling it up! The layout is this week's SCS Sketch Challenge...

The inside sentiment is from the Elzybells set Swirly Greetings, I LOVE this set...So versatile, it has a solid Happy and Birthday as well as a swirly one so it works for boys as well as girls. The star is from Verve's Swirly Stars.
