Hi! It's hard to believe my baby turned 28 on Monday! Where does the time go? It seems like yesterday he was just a baby! Well, not really but if you're a Mom, surely you can relate to what I mean :) So many milestones reached along the way, college, marriage and settled into his career...sigh...
Jerry and his sweet wife, April live in San Francisco so I made him a birthday card featuring a cable car image from the PTI Cable-Gram stamp which I colored using Prima Oil Pastels:

I was inspired by the photo shown below for color:

I'm entering this card in the following challenges: for sketch inspiration, I joined along with retrosketches
 and the PTI Create Along with us challenge:
where I was inspired by Danielle Flanders beautiful watercolored blossoms on the card shown below:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)

I can relate having a 24 year old. What a cute baby he was, and what a great card you created for him.

Oh, love this card, as I left my heart in San Francisco when I moved from there to San Diego. Can you belive I bought this set and have yet to use it. You have inspired me to pull it out and try water coloring. It looks fantastic. And, happy birthday to your son. SF is such a fun place for a young professional just starting out.
