Many Thanks & A Rockin' B-Day Card

Hey everyone! I want to first say, Thanks so much for all of the Prayers & well wishes for our family! PRAISE GOD!! Chace is doing sooo much better today! I have only had to give him Tylenol once today, because his temp. got to 99.7 and his throat hurt. I am going to keep him home one more day from school, because he did have a low grade fever today and I think he still needs a little more rest! We have been working on all of his homework, that was sent home! 3rd grade is alot harder now, than it was when I was in 3rd grade!
I also want to say Thank You for all of the sweet comments & Congrats that were sent my way, for my card being picked for the Clean & Graphic Challenge over at Moxie Fab! I really had a great time playing in those challenges, even when I was sick! :)
And I wanted to share a card, that I made today, for my nephew's 14th birthday tomorrow! I can't believe he will be that old! I remember the day he was born at 4lbs. 9ozs. ! :)
So for the card I made it a rockin' kind of card! My nephew is very musical, just like my brother! My brother bought him a little Gibson Les Paul when he was about 2! He learned how to play it, but then he got more interested in drums! He was REALLY good on drums, but then he got into the keyboard! I don't have a drum or keyboard stamp, but I do have a guitar stamp! So I made the guitar black with little metal stars, because his was black and I used the wood grain, because alot of guitars are made out of wood, and it goes good with masculine cards, and simply because I like wood grain! :) I printed the sentiment from my computer, because I liked the font. Ok, how do ya'll like that guitar strap?! I love it! And, that is pretty much it! So I hope ya'll like it! :)
ETA: I wanted to let everyone know that Savitri is giving away some blog candy over at her blog! Go by and check it out, she is being very generous! :)

I was THRILLED beyond words to see your name right there with mine on Moxie Fab! WHAT an HONOR!! It just doesn't get much better than that, my sweet friend!
I am so glad that Chase is feeling better. I know just what you mean about school being harder. Hailey is finishing 2nd grade and I cannot BELIEVE how much I've forgotten!

And, of course, I love your card! That guitar is so great!

Wow, Winter! What a great card! Very symbolic of you guys surviving a tough week! Not only that, but a little love from Moxie Fab couldn't hurt, either! Congrats, again on that! Rock on, Sista!
