Mark's birhtday card 2012



When I was deciding how to make my son's 47th birthday card, I knew I had to use the motorcycle stamp I had bought especially with him in mind....not sure why it sat on the shelf for so long, but it did! Finally I will use it. At first I planned to add it to the front of the card, but once I decided on the color scheme, paper and added the glitter paper stars, their really wasn't any room left....so the inside was a decorated as the front. His Harley is a red Firefighter's Edition that was made after September 11, 2001 and has been very special to him. He has ridden it south to Key West, Florida, north as far as North Dakota, west to California and everywhere in between. All of these trips have been with at least one other firefighter, sometimes many and meeting up with others across the country. He has had 25 1/2 years service as a career firefighter, was a cadet in high school and also a volunteer for several years. He is retiring but not before giving the county another 2 1/2 years before hanging up his gear. As you can tell I am very proud of him as a son, dad and mentor to others.

All products are Stampin' Up, thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Blessings,
Barb
