Card for Tagen

Michelle of http://donkeysmiles.blogspot.com/ has a nephew who is recovering from serious surgery and I would love everyone to send a card to Tagen. He is marking where the cards are from and when he gets to go back to school, the cards and the map where they are all from will make it to show and tell.

This is the card I made for Tagen.
I used this dinosaur stamp from Stamp Zia since I think all boys think dinosaurs are great. I sure hope so. I find it hard to make a card for an unknown someone. I used some glitter paper on the bottom section. This paper is from the Christmas Glitter matstack from DCWV. The blocked paper is from The Paper Company and the blue is cardstock from Michaels.
I wanted to make a card that a boy would like and not have it too Christmasy. Hope he likes this one. Its on its way to him. If you would also like to send Tagen a card, go over the Michelle`s blog http://donkeysmiles.blogspot.com/. If you email her she will give you the address. It just seems a nice thing to do. He may be in a wheelchair now so any encouragement would help.
We are still in the midst of decorating for the open house. It will never be completely done until the day of the open house. My husband loves to decorate for Christmas and he will only stop when the day finally comes. I am awfully glad we have a large home. We joke about moving to a smaller home once the boys leave home but it always ends with....where would we store/display all our Christmas decorations? The boys always joke about what they will do with all our decorations after we pass on. They say there will be the largest garage sale in the history of garage sales. LOL Oh well, as long as they let us enjoy them now.
Well its that time again....DH is away so I must go pick up DS from work. Life sure will be different once he decides to get his driver`s licence. Talk later.
