Life lessons


Friday’s Potluck Challenge on StampTV was posted by the very talented Lee Murphy and the challenge was to create a card for a young boy, not a baby, not a man – a young boy.

So, this is my Potluck Challenge STVPF22 card. If you haven't had the chance to play, please join us!

Now, I am the mom to 2 boys Andrew and Shane, ages 24 and 11 – yeah, big age difference, but we won’t go THERE . . .

What I learned when Andrew was little, all those years ago, was boys love their wheels. It doesn’t matter how old the boy 2, 24, 64 whatever age – boys love wheels. And if you take away their wheels, you pretty much get their attention. ALWAYS!

So, a card with wheels works for a young boy. Shane loves his toy cars, his 4-wheeler at his dad’s house, models, big cars, little cars, toy cars, real cars. As long as it has wheels, he loves it Andrew loves his wheels – his truck, his motorcycle, cars, dirt bikes, 3 wheelers, 4-wheelers – and I bet the man in your life loves his wheels to!
So, where’s my card for the Potluck Challenge. Make sure you check out Lee’s blog. She is one talented lady!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!
