Happy Birthday

Hello my friends!

This is my second post for today.  Please scroll down to see my Word Art Wednesday card. :-)

I hope you're having a good week, and are looking forward to the weekend.  I made a few cards recently, but hadn't had an opportunity to get pictures until this afternoon.  This frigid weather, and two feet of snow, have made it almost impossible to get outside.  I think this spot on my desk at work will actually be a great place to snap a few pics from now on though.

Here is the card I have to share with you today.

I have been practicing with the CAS style again, and tried my hand at a masculine card for a change.  I really think this card is quite nice.  And, I even watercolored for the first time!  I've had these Winnie & Walter stamps in my stash for a while now, and was happy to finally ink them up.  Love the bold, silver sentiment on this one.  The recipient of this card is a pilot, so I hope he enjoys it.  I'm going to submit this card for the following challenges.

Seize The Birthday:  Anything Goes
CAS-ual Fridays #136:  Watercolor
Crazy 4 Challenges #271:  Masculine Birthday
Just Us Girls #278:  Sentiment As Focus
Mod Squad Challenge: Use Water (I watercolored the map image)

That's all for me today.  I'm off to work, and then hitting the gym with my co-workers.  I hope you have a wonderful day!
