Hello! Today I am sharing an early “Go Wild” personalized birthday card I made for my son Matthew who will be turning eight next week. This card is also part of my Guest DT post over at Squirrel Not So Random Challenge. The theme is Celebrate. I hope you can come join me over at Squirrel’s blog and participate in this fun challenge. I would also like to thank my friend Squirrel for inviting me. It is truly a joy and honored to Guest DT for her again.
