Well it is a very grey day here in Manitoba, so instead of flying, I am home working on a card. We are having a Pre+Canada Day pot luck tonight at my gliding club, and it is also a secret celebration for a club member, Glen, that has been with the WGC for 50 years! He is 85 and still flying. A truly amazing guy, and an inspiration to everyone that knows him. I wanted to make him a thank you card for all the time he has put into volunteering at the club over the years as an instructor, treasurer, and chief grass cutter, etc. I always struggle to come with ideas for man-cards, so I started looking around on the internet for ideas and came across this thank you card on this week's Muse challenge:
The funniest part is that I had this idea in the back of head to cut a glider out of white paper (since there is no such think as a stamp of a glider) but the reason I went to the internet to look for ideas is that I figured fussy cutting a glider was a bad idea that was going to take entirely too long, and would likely end up looking terrible in the end and landing in the trash can. I was just planning to do a blue sky window with some pretty cumulus clouds (the kind us glider pilots live for) and I had it all assembled, but ended up deciding it was missing something. I showed it to my stamping buddy, Sue, and asked her what it needed. She said, "A glider." Argh! So, I thought I would give it a try and see what I could come up with.
I think the guys will be pretty floored when they see it. They don't know about my "other" hobby!
Thanks for stopping by,
