Ben's Birthday Card

It is a wet and snowy day here today. Just like it was a snowy day 17 years ago on this day, so I was told. I was in Labour & Delivery at the hospital to have my first born, Ben.  Wow, time has flown, it feels like it was just yesterday. I am sharing the card I made for him that was inspired by this post HERE by Debbie Gaydos, this post HERE by Jen A. and plans I already had to use the car from Enjoy the Ride.  Fitting since he got his driver's license last week.

Happy Birthday Ben! Love the card you made Tracy. I used the bug for my sons 23rd birthday ,on the 9th. Just didn't post it. I love the way you made yours so colorful! I know they grow up to fast. Im very fortunate to still see all 4 of my children quite often. Thank God! Because I would miss them if I did not. Take care.
