R is for Ryan

Last week, I needed a birthday card for Ryan, a neighbor boy that lives a few houses down from us. Ryan was having a birthday party at Bounce Planet, and Sam was invited.

Ryan is a six year old World War II buff. He's a rare breed! His Mom says he's loved watching the History channel from the time he was three!

When Ryan was about four, he came to my house looking very dejected one day.

"My mom says she won't let me be an Army Ranger because they jump out of airplanes. She says I'll have to join the Navy instead."

"Well, that's how Mom's are, Ryan. She probably figures you'll be safer in the Navy."

"It wasn't safer for the Navy in Pearl Harbor, though," he replied.

Who could argue with that?!

 Ryan is a sweet, special boy, and I wanted his card to be special, too.

I pulled out my new Crate Paper Story Teller papers and chipboard to create this card. I knew he'd appreciate the airplane!
