"Happy Birthday!"

Hi Everyone!

The card I am about to share with you is one of my favorites.  It took a little longer than some of my other cards have to create, but I think it was worth the time.  This card meets the requirements for

365 Cards, Day 326 "Imagine This:  Breezy" Challenge

Cards for Men "Boys and Their Toys" Challenge

Crazy for Challenges "Child's Birthday Card" Challenge

Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge 91  "Birthday Card" Challenge

Here's my card.


Sailboats need a "Breezy" day to move across the waters.  Put some toy boats in the water table and the little boys in our preschool classroom will play with them for hours.  The adult males that I know who sail are happiest when they're out at sea. 

The clouds on this card were cut from a die and then I paper pierced them.  There's something about those clouds.  I ALWAYS paper pierce them!

The waves were cut with a Fiskars paper punch. I paper pieced the sailboats. Their sails are attached to the card with foam tape.  Don't you just love those tiny number stickers.  They're from October Afternoon and were waiting in my sticker stash for me.  The text was stamped with a Lawn Fawn clear stamp.

Too cold to go sailing in Massachusetts today. 

Hope you'll have a wonderful day!
Carol
