We have a dear young man in our church named Kenny who turned 14 this week.  He suffers from severe autism.  His father can be seen many a Sunday walking around with Kenny to keep him under control as he is prone to outbursts.  I saw his mother this week and she asked that I come to his birthday party.  I knew it would make Kenny very happy to see people on his day so I decided I would make him a card and go to his party.

Kenny greeted me on the porch with a big hug.  He has also discovered the Eskimo kiss of noses.  I don't think I have ever received so many Eskimo kisses at one time.  He enjoyed his card and put it in his pocket for safe keeping.

I got to use some new stuff for this card.  I forgot to take a pick of the inside where I used a new birthday sentiment stamp but on the front I used my new die from Frantic Stamper.  I cut this out five times and glued them all together for more of a chipboard feel.  It was then covered in Glossy Accents to make it shine.  Even on a boy card I can find a place for my Glossy Accents.  I just love it!

Thanks so much for visiting me today and have a
