Flying High

Hi Everyone,
Hope we are all doing well. My week has not been that busy so I took advantage and have been making up some cards and doing a little scrapping. I will eventually have to post some of my scrap book pages, but I have not been that brave yet haha!

Today I made birthday card for my daughter's boyfriend. He just passed his test for his commercial pilot's license. We are very happy for him. So I thought this card would be appropriate.
But before I get into that I should mention that my daughter Ashley (said girlfriend) was picked as the freshman academy teacher of the month! What an over achieving pair these two are. She has been a high school teacher for 3years, but this is her first year at this school and her first teaching freshman. We are very proud of her.

Ok enough of my bragging. Today's card is fun, the image is actually a clip art image from Arthur's Free Air Transport Clip Art. I picked a Cessna plane because that is about all I know of planes except that they fly. Colored with Copics. Made a card out of Kraft paper and distressed all my paper on it. The sentiment stamp is from Stampendous. Metal clip is from Making Memories. The ticket stub is a Tim Holtz. The brads and buttons and little passport I had in my stash.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Incy Wincy Designs Something Old/Something new (Old paper, brads, embellies, New image)
Paper Pretties Masculine
Phindys Place Challenge Distressed

Hope you enjoyed your little visit. Thanks for taking a peek. Would love to hear from you.
I am off to make another card, maybe for my brother this time.
