Happy Birthday, John

Today is DH’s birthday—Happy Birthday, honey!  I saw a nice sketch from Mary Jo’s  Technostamper Monday Sketch that fit the bill perfectly for the card I wanted to make for him:
Being the sailor that he is, I pulled out an old SU set and set to work with Cherry Cobbler and Pacific Point:
Despite my best efforts with my photo editing program, this does not look like Pacific Point…it looks more like Brilliant Blue, but you’ll have to take my word for it!  Since John is a no-frills guy, this is a no-frills card!  I did use some embossing on the background, and a little Itty Bitty Banners sentiment & die for the greeting.  Any questions, be sure to pop me an email!  And here’s a picture of John getting ready to sail on his sailboat, Selah:
Enjoy your day!
Cassidy snagged a baby wipe to make a blankie for Lambie:
Then used it to clean Lambie:
Then used it to clean the piano stool (thanks, Cassidy!):
Then had Lambie sit on the piano stool!

Oh...I'll be stealing this card! My husband has boat too and LOVES sailing!! Most people don't think of sailing in Colorado but our boat is docked at the highest yacht club in the world!! (When the water isn't frozen!)

There is something wonderful about a sailboat! However I get so seasick at the slightest bobble I will never know what it is like to sail on one! Perfect card!

This was the perfect sketch for this stamp--well, your creative mind made it the perfect sketch, love it! Great masculine card. Thank you so much for playing along with my sketch challenge this week--sand for sharing Cassidy with us--she is so cute!

This looks great! I love the colors and the layout. I've got to make time to stamp some non-Christmas cards using a sketch challenge. I haven't done that for weeks now! Love the photos of Cassidy. Glad she's so diligent about caring for Lamby. :-)
