A Hero's Birthday

Good morning everyone! I am really glad that we are already at the middle of this week! It is a really cold morning here and I can feel a sort of head cold coming on. Ugh! I do hope that finds its way out, and soon! I have a lot that I want to do this week and I hope that I can find the time to do it all!

Today's card is one that I made for a young man serving in our military. His mom is a good friend of mine and she asked me (and some others) to make a birthday card for her son who is serving overseas. She told me that her son has spent seven of his last eleven birthdays serving overseas. WOW! I have met him once and from what my friend, Kim, tells me, he is very serious about what he does! He absolutely loves what he does and works very hard. So I considered it an honor to send him a birthday card. His birthday is next week but I wanted to make sure he got it in plenty of time. I took a piece of Crumb Cake and ran it through the Big Shot with the stripes embossing folder and the sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink. I attached this to a piece of Riding Hood Red and popped it up on a card base of Crumb Cake. I ran a piece of Not Quite Navy through the Big Shot with the stars die. I attached the largest star to the card and then took a smaller start, but a silver brad in it and then popped it p on the card. Then I took a strip of Crumb Cake and stamped the greeting from Happiest Birthday Wishes in Early Espresso. I flagged one end and then sponged the edges with Crumb Cake. I glued it in between the two stars. I hope he likes his card! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  1. I'm a new subscriber to your blog. I look at a lot of blogs, so unfortunately I don't have time to comment very often, but I had to tell you how much I like this card! It's so perfect for a man who is serving his country. Great design!
