Some People Add Such Joy!

How is it possible that it is only Wednesday? This has to be the longest week in history!
I have been doing waaaaay too much chasing and running.  

Kyle got a job at our local pizza place.  I am quite proud of him.  I don't talk about him quite the same as I do about Cort.  Mostly because he looks at my blog, he's a boy, and he's 17.  But he has had his share of struggles, and plenty of  ups and downs.  I don't want to get into the nitty gritty of it all and possibly risk embarrassing him. But let's just say that his struggles are different than Cort's, but can be just as difficult as hers in a different way. He is aware of his differences, unlike Cort, and that makes it difficult for him. For me. It breaks my heart some days to see what he has to go through. 
So for him to interview well and land a job is quite an accomplishment! His grades are good, he is signed up for the ACT, and he is starting to look at colleges seriously.  
He is one of those people that does add joy to my life. 
He is my baby. My "Renaissance Man." 
My son also collected frogs when he was this card is perfect for him. It is a Crafty Secrets image.  It was colored with Copic Markers.  The pocket was cut using my Silhouette. (Which I still can't link to because my computer is telling me it is a malicious site?)  The sentiment is also by Crafty Secrets. 
I added glitter and touches of glossy accents to the frog. 
Here's to a speedy end to this week! ;)
Thank you for stopping by!!!

Michele, this card is so stinkin' cute! I love the papers you combined to make that bright, happy background, and then the coloring on the frog is perfection. I love every little detail, right down to the hot pink twine bow. I don't know how you do it!

Congratulations to your son on his new job! Being 17 isn't easy, but he sounds like he's got a great head on his shoulders. This card will really make him smile. That frog is so stinkin' cute! Fabulous design, too. I adore all the bright colors!
