A Birthday Shout-Out and a Milestone Anniversary

Today we celebrate two special occasions -- a brother's birthday and a veterinarian anniversary.

Kevin's youngest brother, Victor, turns 27 today! He currently lives in Hamilton, ON with his wife, Chelsea and their son, Micah (who is adorable, by the way!) He is the studious type and is studying his way to becoming a minister. A little over a year ago, when Victor and Chelsea came to visit us in PG, we had the pleasure of hearing one of his sermons in our own church (Prince George CRC).  He speaks clearly and with confidence and has a way of incorporating the history of the Bible times and how it can be applied to today. It will be neat to see how God uses him in the future!

Here's wishing Victor a very Happy Birthday!

Remember this card? I created it a few weeks ago (see original blog post here). It makes a perfect masculine birthday card!

And another reason to celebrate -- My father-in-law has reached 40 years as veterinarian! What a significant milestone! I decided it would be very fitting to create an animal-related anniversary card. I was inspired by Mary Fish's paw print card (click here to see her post). Here's what I came up with:

Can you tell what punch I used for the paw? It's a full heart punch and the 'toes' are small ovals from the Ovals nestabilities. I love punch art! This one especially is super easy and just perfect for this occasion! I fussy cut the numbers and popped them up to give the card some dimension. The strip of Chocolate Chip cardstock is embossed with a square lattice pattern. Finally, I added the sentiment 'Happy Anniversary' and cut them in flag shapes.
Thanks for stopping by!
