You Only Get One Shot . . .

My son-in-law had a birthday this week, so I came up with this card for him.  He is an avid duck hunter.  Well, he pretty much loves any kind of hunting.  So, I knew he'd like this little pooch with his gun.  I received a comment from an anonymous person asking that I list sizes in my descriptions.  I hope they are meaning the sizes of the cards because I have a hard time remembering the size of the cuts I use.  I'm always cutting and tossing and cutting again in a different size to get the right look.  Anyway, the card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (which is A2).  I cut the dog from the Paper Pups Cricut cartridge.  The orange background shape (not sure what to call it) is from the Accent Essentials Cricut cartridge.  The tag with the sentiment on it is a Shapeabilities die.  I also used a couple of border punches and embossed the green strip of paper.  The star wooden buttons came from Joann's.

The inside says, "at having a great birthday every year.  Hope you make the most of it!  Happy Birthday!"

Hope you like it, and thanks for your comments.

This is soo adorable. My hubby is a hunter and is getting very interested in duck hunting. We live near the same bay L.L.Bean had a camp on. And you are so sweet wanting to do something special for the lady who lost her daughter. Sometimes we feel so helpless and need some direction as to what that person may need from us. Prayers for you and the family, Lisa
