Soaring

Today was my beloved husband's birthday.  We celebrated by going to a movie (Wreck-It Ralph) with the kids after Church, and then out for supper with some friends.  It was a great day to celebrate him.  He is such a good man, and I'm blessed he's mine!

Here was the CAS card I made for him...


I love the idea of soaring ahead for the year ahead for him.  We'll be adventuring with our sabbatical in the new year and he and I look forward to it very much.  This cute plane is from PTI.  I colored it up with Copics, and gave the card quite a bit of dimension, the plane is popped up, the open clouds are recessed back and the banner has extra pop in the center.  On a CAS card I really think that little details like this make the design interesting.  


Cut hey?  I love the little felt clouds.  

And since I barely had any time for photos this week for Project 365  (it was incredibly busy), I'll leave you with a few shots of the family today celebrating Daddy.  We really are blessed.  




And of course you have to have a funny shot in my family.  

Love. This. Man.  :)  Happy Birthday again honey!

Great guy card, looks like he loved it. Glad you enjoyed the day with family and is birthday. we saw that movie recently too. Loved it with the exception of a lot of name calling. Doesn't help parents out any in that department. Over all very cute and makes me feel old. ha!
