None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Birthday Glow!

A man's age is something impressive, it sums up his life: maturity reached slowly and against many obstacles, illnesses cured, griefs and despairs overcome, and unconscious risks taken; maturity formed through so many desires, hopes, regrets, forgotten things, loves. A man's age represents a fine cargo of experiences and memories.
Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry, Wartime Writings 1939-1944, translated from French by Norah Purcell

A shout out to our wonderful retired Reverend, Uncle Russ, who is celebrating 83 years of living, breathing and being human like the rest of us! 

I won this adorable image some time ago and just finally got around to using it. It's called Birthday Candle Birdbrain by From the Heart Stamps.

Uncle Russ has such a great sense of humor, I thought he would enjoy the whimsy!

I printed him on card stock from Georgia Pacific and colored him with my Prisma Color Pencils.
Still working on my shading but I think I'm getting better.

The card size is 5 x 7
