Up Up and Away

Before I get to my card I would like to say that I am sorry for disappearing this last week. About a month ago I got a promotion at work and as a result I have been very busy and putting in a lot more hours at work. I am hoping that now that school (for those of you that don't know I work at at a school) has started for us I will get back into my regular schedule. So on to my card....

I made this card for my son's birthday this week, he will be nineteen (how did that happen?) It also is for 9 different challenges , a personal best for me! I will list them all below. Thank you for stopping by.
