Happy Birthday Will

I made this card for my son William's 24th birthday.  Kind of kiddish you might say for a 24 year old, but he really is still like a big kid. He left our home and moved out to Oklahoma  a couple years back searching for a career and some adventure...not having any idea where it would lead him!  It broke our hearts and we've only seen him a couple times since then though we've talked, texted & emailed a lot.  One of the first adventures he went on after arriving there was to take flying lessons! OMG!!  Then he uncovered a career opportunity that involved using his talents and might suit him well.  He's making his way in the grown up world now, and we're just hoping that it eventually brings him back home here with us!!  Anyway..he just recently completed his solo flight lesson and I thought this would be a really cute birthday card for him!!  Below the card is a  close up picture of him in the plane at his first lesson with that crazy "Oh Wow..this is going to be fun" look on his face!  The airplane & sun were cut from the Cricut Boys Will be Boys cartridge,  the grass from Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge, can't remember which cart the cityscape was cut from.  The sentiment is cut & stamped from Jillian Vance Everyday Flags and the twine that connects it & the plane is from Scrapworks.com.  I chalked up the grass, cityscape and sun.  Thanks for stopping by to take a look!!
