I am in awe of World Making Card Day. This is my first time participating as a card-maker and not as a giver or receiver of one of these beautiful handmade cards. I have had the pleasure of sending OWH cards to my loved one's a few years back and I have also received them from friends who were deployed.
Since then I too have become a card-maker and today I give thanks to the men and women who sacrifice so much for our freedom. Thank you OWH for using today to showcase the beautiful works of art that I have personally benefited from. Now, I give back to my comrades.
For this card I used OWH's Sketch #45 simply because my birthday is October 16th and I will turn 45 years old. I like to celebrate my birthday the entire month because I like to brag about I am…. growing old gracefully… LoL. However, this year I am deployed and will celebrate my birthday for a whole month when I get home. =)
I was actually quite pleased with the way the card turned out. Not bad #45… you made me proud. Funny, in a couple weeks I will turn 45 and I don't know what 45 is supposed to feel like… so I'll just keep acting as young as my heart feels. That's what my dad always says and he just turned 86 yesterday. =)
