My "little" sailor...

Hi everyone...well, you saw the b-day card I made for Adam (my youngest who will be 32 on Saturday!)...now here's a card for my oldest son, Andrew. He'll be 35 on Oct. 2nd. I wanted to get it in the mail BEFORE his birthday! My kids give me such grief because I'm ALWAYS late sending out birthday cards! So he'll be surprised to get this early!! hehehe!
So, this little image of Edwin is perfect for my "little" Andrew (who is 6 ft. 3 in. tall and is a body builder!). Andy was in the Navy for several years and traveled all over the world on the destroyer U.S.S. Gonzalez. My little boy "grew up" in the Navy...and I'm so proud of him having served his country...and of the friend, husband, and father he's become! Happy early b-day, Andy!


Here's the recipe:
Cardstock: SU white & navy
DP: Magnolia
Copics: (see pic)
Crackle accents applied to porthole
Glossy accents on shoes & anchor
Rope & Charm: my stash
Sentiment & ticket stamp/die: Tim Holtz Thanks so much for stopping by...and don't forget to scroll down to see my newly organized craftroom! YAY!! Pat
