Have a Par-fect Birthday



This week at Sassy Cheryl's I get to be the hostess!! Yipee!! I have chosen the theme "The Great Outdoors". The weather is getting warmer and we will all be spending a lot more time outside. (and it's about time!) I have to say it was nice to finally get a touch of pink on my shoulders.




I made this card for my Brother In Law, Sam. He is an AVID golfer. He retired from the Army last year and is now a helicopter pilot in Colorado. When we went for a visit last summer he took us up and the view of the mountains was AMAZING! For me, they were beautiful from the ground because I had never seen them in person but the view from the heli was sooooooo much better. After I got over the initial "OH CRAP" feeling I really enjoyed it. Sam is a great guy and I am really glad my Sister brought him into our crazy family.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAM, we love you!




I hope you all will come by and play along with us this week. We all really enjoy seeing your creations. So, pick out your favorite "Outdoor" Sassy image and get crafty!






Paper: My Mind's Eye-You and Me Numbers Paper, October Afternoon-Seaside Swim Trunks'\


Accessories: Spellbinders-Labels Two, CuttleBug-Swiss Dots embossing folder, EK Success-Rock Fern punch, Fiskars-Cloud punch

Jeni,
this is a really cool card for a man. I love all the little embellishments and it's colorful... even though it's for a guy.
