Happy Birthday Daddy...


Today is my Dad's birthday.

Happy Birthday Daddy!

I usually write a bit about the 'featured' person, but I've said quite a lot about my Dad previously, so this year I will keep it brief.

My Dad is the only person that sends me email just because - he sends me random news, tips, photos - all kinds of random things.

The emails totally remind me of him and our conversations and make me miss him and home.

Now on to my card :) I had lots of fun making my Dad's card - in fact I always do, I get to create something elaborate for a man - so rare!

I used a Silhouette cut file that made me smile. Now there was a little bit of a oops moment with this card. I didn't line up the black and the red papers correctly when cutting, so as you can see the guitar has a little black section...

At first I was peeved and was going to cut another guitar..then my lazy side woke up and suggested that I stick the 2 parts together and use it anyway.

I think it works...

I mounted both the sentiment and the guitar using teeny tiny foam pads (never again) and added little black gems for fun.

Have a happy Friday wherever you are and have a great weekend.
