Bakery Shop Birthday Card

Birthday Card For My Son

Today my son Chase turns 20!  Wow where does the time go!!!  I wanted to make something fun, masculine yet still something that tell's him he is still a little boy to me!  The inside of the card reads:
Happy 20th Birthday Chase
It seems like only yesterday
You'd say I love you Mommy
And wrap your arms around my neck
And seal it with a kiss
Those days are gone forever
Stored in my memories
I can only say... Those days I truly miss
My little boy has grown up
Into a wonderful young man
You truly are a blessing
Of who I am so very proud
Honesty, kindness and gentleness
To name just a few
With all these things
I think of you!

Happy Birthday Son ... I love you so!  Always your Mommy  xoxo
