A quick card

Here's another Wanted card for you.....I am headed off to BSF, so no time to chit chat! I still begging for TypePad help, so if you love it and can help me get a custom banner on it and my old blog transferred over, I'd give you a great big hug!!!

You know what else I need some help with? My son has his very first GIRLFRIEND! Ugh. I can hardly believe my eyes, and I just don't feel ready to go there yet! Any and ALL advise welcome on this new addition in our lives:)!


  1. I love this card, Amy! But you know I'm a sucker for western stuff. Sorry, I can't help with the girlfriend thing...I am NOT looking forward to those days. ;D

  2. A beautiful card! Love it! Wow! His first girlfriend - now the "fun" begins. LOL!

  3. Oh I remeber bing that "girl" that the mom wasn't ready for. (I don't think my M-I-L is ready still and all her sons are married!) My boys are 5 and 2 so I cannot offer anything really. 'cept for this: Welcome her, talk to her a lot and just simply enjoy her as a temporary daughter - sneak in some girl time if he and she allow it. *wink* My bff has that girl at her house now and actually they have become good friends over the past few months ... in fact this gal even comes to stamp and make cards with us once in a while, while the son is off doing his own thing. (I so wish my mother in law understood this.) Best wishes for this new part of the journey!

  4. Hey Amy, not much I can help you with your son's new GF..but I can relate to the kid bro just got a new GF and my first reaction was, oh! you're too young for it, you have no idea what you're doing. She'll break your heart and a lot more. I guess no girl is good enough for my bro :)

  6. Very simple advice, the more you push against it, the more he'll push for it. Good luck!!!

  7. Gorgeous card! You do such an awesome job with this technique, and I love the papers you used!

    As the mom of a teenage son(and daughter) who both have "special friends", what I have learned is:

    1. Stay cool.
    2. Don't get overly attached(they may be gone before the day is over!)
    3. Ask questions about where they plan to go on dates and with who(I always suggest couple/group dates to alone dates)
    4. hold on for the ride!

    It will be okay, it's just a part of growing up and learning how to be a good partner someday.

    Also, love the card!


  9. love the card--you're so much freer with your stamping than I am!

    one word of advice about the girlfriend--don't get too attached. i had a friend whose son dated a girl for 6 months, and the family all grieved when they broke up, she had become such a part of the family. go slowly and be yourself...ask your son what he wants you to do.


  10. Hi Amy,

    re: typepad - I cried & cried, and said a few choice words, and tried & tried again. I hired Angeie Pedersen over at scrapbook industry news to help me with a few things. I understand we are not alone. I am btw still trying to figure out how to get a picture into the side column that when clicked on will link to another web site - and the BIGGIE, how do I get my blog onto search engines, and read? email me w/ any specific questions and if I have a how to answer I'm happy to share. You just may want to call on Angie tho - tell her I sent you ;o)

    hang in there


  11. I love how you stamped this! What an awesome card! And the teenage girlfriend am so not ready to go there....doesn't it seem like yesterday they were toddling around? Where the heck does the time go?

    Love your card. Oh no a first girlfriend. My son hasn't yet, he's 15, but I'm sure it's coming. I wish I had advise, I guess prayers are always a good thing!
