Cody is 21

When my kids were young my Mother worked part-time for a few years and would take my children for several days.  She would many times plan excursions with a neighbor friend who had children around the same age.  Now that my daughter is going to college in that town, she has become friends again with the neighbor boy Cody.  We have always exchanged birthday cards throughout the years, but it is interesting that the kids have reconnected.  My daughter likes that she has friends locally to do things with especially if she stays there for the weekend.  Cody turns 21 so I made this card for him with a deer since he likes outdoor sports and hunting.  I used my Tim Holtz inks and spritzed some water on the TLC sentiment to give it a more rugged look.
My other card is using this weeks Mojo sketch and another TLC sentiment.  I cut out four ribbon banner spellbinder dies and put them behind the circle.  I also used a Zva pearls sticker.
