Let's Hear It for the Boys

This week's Simply Stampin Challenge is the dreaded male card, the challenge name being Let's hear it for the Boys!  I made this busy card for a very busy young man - my nephew Adam!  
Adam has triumphed over adversity all his life, he suffers from Aspbergers syndrome, which is very high on the Autism spectrum.  Not that he has let this stop him, he has so many interests that I could not list them all here.  Among them are Army Training Corp, shooting and golf.  He has managed to learn to drive and has also secured a university place.  He has had many problems along the way, particularly with his education and integration into any social scenarios has been a real struggle for him.  He has come through it all with shear grit and determination and I am really proud of him.  Well done Adam, Happy 18th, you deserve it!


  1. This is such a great card Marcia, I'm sure Adam loved it! Such great texture and fab colour combo - the cogs are perfect for a male card!

    Thanks so much for playing along with us again at Simply Stampin' and I hope we see you again soon!
