Have a whale of a Birthday!

This birthday card is for my son, he turns 23 next month, how does it happen? This is a 6X6 card. Unidentified background paper. The Pelican and banner are Magnolia images. The porthole is a Nesties Oval. The whale tail was cut with "Life is a Beach" and the anchors are from "Mickey & Friends". "2010" is a QK font and stars are from a Martha punch. All coloring was done with Copic markers and the Airbrush. Happy Thursday, Hugs

Fabulous card, Sandi! I love the porthole and all your images are fantastic! I don't know where the time goes. My oldest will be 33 in October and I can't believe it! I just shake my head and move on. :)
hugs!

What a fun card, Sandi! Love the view from the porthole! My son is 22 and I swear just yesterday I was putting him on the bus for his first day of kindergarten!

Your son will love it..but isn't it amazing how our children get older and we stay the same..

I still can't believe that my youngest just turned 17.. especially since I'm just 21...lol

Absolutely delightful card, Sandi! Love the way you combine different machines to get your embellies. Isn't it strange how time goes so much faster as we age. My oldest just turned 38 and it seem like just yesterday I was papering her room with Holly Hobby wall paper and she was wearing a prarie hat and carrying a really honey pail to school! LOL!
Hugs

Sandi, time flies and although I always know that I am getting older each year, nonetheless I am amazed when my son turns another year. It is thru our children that we see time fleeting. Love this card.

Hi Sandi...you're right, this is an adorable seagull and what you've done with him - perching him on the porthole - is just delightful!! Beautiful card! Pat Frank
