You've Got The "Write" Stuff

I couldn't resist a little play on words with this card.  I am planning to put it in my stash of care package items for my son.  He is a college student and I love to send him and several of his friends cards and small gifts throughout the year.  I will probably send this during finals week.
 
Ok, now for a little bit of mom bragging...my son just finished his first year at college and came home with straight A's for both semesters!!  He got all his smarts from his mom....hahahaha!  He is spending the summer taking 2 classes plus working 2 jobs.  He is getting trained today to scrub in for surgeries so he can get a little closer when he goes in to observe.  He is planning to go to med school and would like to be a family practioner in a rural area.  Love that kid!

Keep on Bragging Mom. You deserve it. You have raised an amazing son! I love the precision of the patched background on your card. Every time I try something like that I spend hours trying to get my pieces straight. I never achieve perfection and look at yours. You must be a straight A person like your son.
