Enjoy the little things...

I made this card for my son.
Although this is his 2nd Father's Day, Lil Maddix has
just turned 1 year old so it will be much more meaningful for him.

As we all did when we were new parents,
we sometimes forget to see the forest for the trees -
hence, my theme for this year's card.
The cuts are from Camp Out and the
circle sentiment is computer generated in WORD.
A few small gem stones for stars, a small tag for embellishment,
and the front of this card is complete.

Some "popping" for added dimension...

My personal sentiment...
(I did get a bit teary-eyed!)
and this card has already hit the mailbox!

I will be entering this in the following challenges:
