American hero

It's been a busy week with work and then I had to take my son who is 16 for orientation at the University.  He is taking a class through "Youth Option" in which he will attend UW-Madison.  Now I have to worry about him getting from his high school down town which is not the easiest thing and finding parking to get to class.  We spent some time together and we talked about his future goals.  I still worry about him since he talks about military at times and to me he looks just likes Mo's image on my card this week.  I distressed the edges of the paper and then inked the oval with the image.  The sentiment is perfect which is from TLC, Create.

My second card is for my Uncle who loves to tell stories.  Paulette has the perfect paper fish papers along with the sentiment at TLC, Create.  This will be a perfect card for him.

Two wonderful cards, Lisa Lynn! The image on the first is so darn adorable, I love it! Love the sentiment with it, too! And the second will be perfect for your uncle--it's a great image and sentiment for such a man!
How cool that your son is already taking some college level courses! Not cool that you have to take him there, but still! And he may change his goals yet, since he is only 16. Try to talk him into finishing college before he thinks of joining the military!
