Officially a Sonar Tech.................. the U.S. Navy.  My grandson told us he passed his exam and he is officially a Sonar Tech, I am so proud of him and very excited.  So to celebrate this great achievement I made him this card.
 "Hooyah" is the Navy or shout when good things happen, so I used the letter in the Art Philosophy cartridge and welded them in the Cricut Craft Room program.  All the cuts on this card are from the Art Philosophy cartridge.  I love this cartridge, there seems to be a cut for most everything. And the best part is (if you haven't heard already) you can get it free for signing up as a Close to my Heart consultant this month.  It is an amazing offer for $99 you get the consultant kit, which is packed with goodies, and the Art Philosophy package for free which contains the cartridge and three coordinating stamp sets. If you want to check it out click HERE.  Or if you want to sign up here is the application form.  Sorry got side tracked, ha ha, back to the card.
I made this card following the sketch this week at Mojo Monday you still have time to play along and since it is the 1st challenge of the month there will be prizes.  The sketch seemed to fit perfectly into the theme I wanted, using some Navy papers that I recently bought it all came together pretty well.  The Art Philosophy cartridge even had the half circle cut on it and the red & white star banner cut.
Here is a little closer look at the bottom of the card.  The submarine and the "NAVY"  are stickers, and I had the stared ribbon to match.  All and all the card came together very well.
I computer generated a verse for the inside.
His next big challenge will be to earn his Dolphin pin while he is learning and working on the submarine.
Thank you so much for stopping by, please leave me a comment to let me know you were here.
