Happy Birthday Jules Verne

I just happened to go out to Google to look up something and low and behold, the Google logo had changed. So then I saw that they were celebrating the 183rd birthday of Jules Verne. WOW isn't that awesome!! Normally this wouldn't mean too much to me, however, I just finished a card that had a deep sea theme.So I thought the card I made would be so appropriate for his birthday. 

He is best known for novels such as Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870), A Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), and Around the World in Eighty Days (1873).  We all have probably read one of these books and maybe even saw one of the movies made based on his writings. He wrote about things that hadn't been invented yet, a true visionary. His works are considered science fiction. I find that so amazing because as I read some of his works as a kid, some of the things he wrote about , we had, like submarines. Click here for a site with more info pertaining to Jules Verne, its very interesting.


So here's to you Mr. Verne, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!


Thanks for stopping by,
