Captain Jake


It's my son's 8th birthday today! I can hardly believe it! We're having his birthday party this weekend, but I wanted to be sure and make a card to give him today. He's having an ARMY birthday which is fitting, cuz it's Veteran's Day on Monday. Jake has many dreams and plans for his life, he already knows he wants to be in the ARMY, then he wants to be a Pirate, not a bad one, a good one that helps people and explores, looking for treasure. He also wants to be a photographer to take pictures of all the places he goes on his Pirate journeys!! :D So cute!

This card is super simple, but I know he'll love it! The notecard is A Muse, the stamp set is Ahoy Matey by Stampin' Up! Memories black ink, Stampin' Up! markers, Spica gold glitter marker on the sword handle and hook hand, Creative Memories Precious Element silver pen on sword. Creamy Caramel SU ink sponged on with dauber, SU Bella fiber for rope, decorative scissors to make mat around pirate.

Thanks so much for looking and stopping by my blog!! :D
