Birthday card

Today is my neighbor Carrell's 91st birthday. Him and his wife live by themselves and have no family here,they have one son who lives in Texas and he's trying to convince them to move there. They really need some help and I got them signed up for meals on wheels and help getting to their appointments.
I have really grown close to them and try and help as much as they will let me. I take hot food to them every few days , they forget to eat and recently Carrell has been getting dizzy and falling.
The ambulance came last week and it scared me to death, they took him ,checked him out but he wouldn't stay like they wanted him too.
Carrell served in WWII was at Pearl Harbor when in was attacked, he has alot of interesting stories to tell and I love hearing everyone of them.
Happy Birthday to a very very special Man!

I was inspired.......

By the eek blocks below to make this cute Faith shelf sitter. I think it turned out pretty cute and was easy peasy
and fun too!

I just traced aroung the piece of wood on a piece of decorative paper then cut it out, set aside, paint all the exposed wood with my craft paint and a sponge brush,let dry. I then used Mod Podge , Applying it to the back of the paper then positioning the paper on the wood and smoothing it out, I use a small wooden rolling pin I bought at Michaels for a buck to roll over the paper and smooth it out. Let dry, then sand the edges, in downward strokes only so the paper don't lift or tear.
I used my alphalicious cartridge for the fonts just glued them on with my Scotch scrapbookers glue,love this stuff!
