Daddy turned 85 last week. He had felt really bad for a while and is finally back to his old self. Doesn't feel GREAT, but doesn't feel 105 any more. So thankful. I was concerned that he might not be around for his next birthday if he didn't get better . . . so, very thankful and hopeful that we will have him to celebrate many more birthdays.
This is the card I made for his birthday. I used some Ippity stamps from the set So Very Happy for his birthday card. I stamped it using distress inks on the kraft paper. Then I colored the leaves using a Marvy Uchida marker. It's hard to see, but the square in the lower righthand corner says Happy Birthday. I used a Fiskars punch for my cardinal--just had to have that punch!! This is a very clean and simple card, but I was happy with the way it turned out.
