Some things never change!!

After thirty years, some things never change!
 This week will come to a grinding halt on Friday when my son celebrates his thirtieth (did I really write that? ) birthday!!! I don't feel THAT old and yet I have a son now in his 30's..... I remember well, not adjusting to that age just like I didn't like 40, or 50 or 60!! It's only a number and it's how I feel inside. Gee, I wonder how he is doing? Really!  Anyways, I had to make him a special card and I have been dwelling on this important deed for a while but not coming up with anything. Suddenly, on Wednesday I had an idea which stems from his youth. He LOVED being naked!! It was a chore to keep the clothes on him. In our home, we are pretty prudish about these things, so I have no idea where it started. But it certainly was entertaining!  I found this adorable image in the Bugaboo store and I knew it was for him. The  inside says:
"After thirty years, some things never change!!" I know it will make him laugh and I hope he has as much fun in the next thirty years, as he has had in the last. I am so proud of him and wish him love!
I used Scenic Route as my paper and coloured my image with Copics. I added pop dots for dimension and some ribbon and twine. Some Cuttlebug embossing was added to the top piece and the sentiment inside was computer generated. I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
PIO : funny bone
Catch the bug : anything goes
One Crazy Stamper : men/boys
One Stop Crafty Challenge : birthday
Digis With Attitude : make us laugh
Stamp Something : May digi day
Pollycraft Challenge: boyz to men
