You're Super, Man!

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice

Today is our youngest son, Ryan's birthday! wooo hoooo! feels strange to not be able to spend it with him, but I hope he is having a most fantastic day with all of his friends in Indiana. We have always called him Super Ry, partially because of his fondness for the Super Hero, Superman. don't ever get him started on the rivalry between Superman and Batman. it's pretty funny to listen to. ;)

So there was no doubt that  his birthday card was going to feature a Superman type image. I found this one over at A Day for Daisies a while back. the sentiment was hand typed and then punched with a SU! punch. papers are from the new Basic Grey Persimmon collection, including that fab golden feather. a little SU! linen thread and some buttons complete the card. kinda simple, but perfect for my super hero!

I know it's been pretty quiet here on my blog lately, but I have been VERY busy getting ready for all of the fun coming up in October. I hope y'all are ready for LOTS of posts filled with inspiration for breast cancer awareness as well as LOTS of blog candy! :)
