95 Happy Birthday CCMCSPRING 14-03

February 8, 2014

It is a gorgeous day!  The sun is shining and it is about 60 degrees.  You can't ask for more in February!

I needed to make a card for my Dear Uncle Paul who will be turning 95 on Feb. 15.  Yes, I did write 95!!!!  He is very, very special to me!!! He is my Daddy's only brother and when I talk to him, it is like hearing my Daddy's voice.  I love him so much and I am sorry that I can not go to his birthday celebration next Sat.  I can't travel yet with my knee replacement, so I will just have to be there in spirit.

I couldn't decide how I wanted to create the card, but when I saw the Sketch Challenge from Create With Connie and Mary this morning, I was thrilled.  I knew just what I wanted to make.  The sketch is so versatile and I loved all the examples by the Design Team.  Here is my special card for Uncle Paul.
