A Boy, His Dog, and a Canoe Birthday Card

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice (no, I really don't ever get tired of drinking it!)

When you son filmed his own nature documentaries as a young boy, rescued a dog from the pound, does all kinds of extreme sports, and has had aspirations of working for the World Wildlife Federation for years, what other kind of card do you make him for his birthday than a nature inspired one?! :)  He is currently studying Wildlife Resource Management in school, too. yes, I am ever so proud!!!!

I used this wonderful image from The Doodle Garden, which sadly no longer sells digis. paper is from the Kaisercraft Hunt & Gather collection, which I hoard ever so dearly because it's so perfect for my guys! main image die is Spellbinders, stitched sun die is La La Land, linen thread is SU!, and buttons are from my vintage stash.

I was able to start visiting a few of your blogs yesterday by back-tracking from comments left here on posts. hopefully my blog feed will be back to working again soon. again, I am so very sorry.

Have a wonderful weekend! :)
