Unscripted Sketches #230 - Happiness & Cheer

Saturday November 9, 2013
 
Happy Birthday to my son Samson. It turns 41 today and just retired from the Coast Guard last Saturday after 21 years and 11 months. (he is still a longshoreman which he's been doing for years) I'm so proud of you and all you've become.

 
Unscripted sketches #230 Saturday challenge. I hope you play along and post to the Unscripted site.
 

This is the card I made for the sketch. I thought it would be good to get some Christmas cards done and I have been wanting to use the holly leaf die. I think it's a fun sketch and it was a fun card to make.
