Enjoy the Journey!

My friend, Gretchen, has a friend who's father, Frank, will be celebrating his 90th birthday this coming week.  Her friend would love to have him receive 90 cards for the momentus occasion.

I think that we forget how blessed we are that those who came before us enable us to live as free and as comfortably as we do.  If you'd like to help celebrate his birthday, here's his address:     

                                                  Frank Klackle
                                                  119 Lime St., NE
                                                  Lake Placid, FL  33852

Here's my card for Frank. 

The hot air balloon is a new template from The Cutting Cafe...I just love it!  If you've never ridden in a hot air balloon, you really should put it on your "bucket list".  It's just the most serene and peaceful way to travel across the sky.  They're so beautiful, tool .

The DP is from a really cool, really BIG pack of adhesive backed paper from DCWV called Pattern Stack.  It's 12" x 24" and works PERFECTLY in die cutting machines.  One of the things I like best is that you don't have to worry about how to glue or stick down small areas. 

Happy Birthday, Frank!

Supply List:
Paper - Neenah Classic, DCWV
Template/Sentiment - The Cutting Cafe
Numbers - Papertrey Ink dies
Accessories - sewing machine, Spellbinders circle dies

Pin It!
