Happy 27th Birthday Andy-Let's Hear it for the Boys IO Challenge
This card was made for my 27 year old baby. My middle son. The child who gave me the biggest headaches. The one who tested every single rule we ever gave him. The one who I always tried to be one step ahead of, yet never quite was able to. The one who is the reason I know so much about emergency medicine. I read nearly every textbook he had, made more flashcards than you can imagine, had my blood pressure and pulse taken so many times it went up just looking at him come into the room. Thank goodness you can't do CPR or intubate someone who is actually breathing or else I would have really been in trouble. In the end, all of this paid off, after many years of training, testing, interviewing and 4 different academies, Andy became the firefighter/paramedic he had wanted to become since he was 16. He tells us stories about the fires he's fought and the people he's saved, events I can not believe my Andy could have been part of. I am so proud of the man he has become. Today my baby is 27. I won't tell you how old that makes me, but I can say all of the work was worth it. This card is for Andy:
I used several Impression Obsession stamps for this card today. IO Screen is stamped on the kraft cardstock base and Distressed Corduroy is stamped on the orange mat behind the sentiment. I absolutely love these stamps for a beautiful, subtle background. I have entered this card in the Impression Obsession Challenge, Let's Hear it for the Boys.
