Happy 13th Birthday

Today my youngest turned 13! Now I have two teenagers in the house! Since both my boys also speak German I chose a German sentiment for his card. The balloons that look almost white are actually a light green. 

We are currently away on an island on beautiful Lake Muskoka, Ontario, Canada. This is out last night here. This summer turns out to be crazy busy. But soon I hope to find more time to craft and post!

  10. Guten Morgen ;)
    Und einen herzlichen Glückwunsch hier aus Deutschland- feiert schön und genießt den Urlaub ! Eine absolut passende Karte für einen 13 jährigen großen Teenager!
    Ganz liebe Grüsse Elisabeth

  11. Nachträglich noch herzliche Glückwünsche an Deinen Sohn! Diese siper Karte hat ihm bestimmt gut gefallen! Wir sind auch gerade im Urlaub. In Boulder, CO.

  12. Fantastic, Susanne ... fun, bright, celebratory ... bet your son loved it! How brilliant both your boys are bilingual ... you must've worked hard to make sure that happened ... what a wonderful advantage they'll have! Summer here has been crazy too ... hence me being so late coming by ... doing lots of catching up! Bon weekend, my friend! Hugs, Anita :)

  13. It's a perfect card for a youngster, who probably doesn't appreciate 'fussy'. Love the colorful balloons, & the clever way you've gotten the age factor in the design. Lots of texture in the balloons too. Enjoy the rest of your vacation. TFS & Hugs.

  14. A great card and I really like the different colours on the balloons! Thanks for playing along with us at Seize The Birthday :)

  15. Na, zum gratulieren komme ich ja wohl zu spät!! Schöne, schlichte Karte (Jungs mögen es eh nicht so voll).....

  16. Totally made me smile. Great choice of balloons for a cheery bday card. Hope vacay was wonderful.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! They make my day!
