The Big Dog's Birthday Card!
Tomorrow is the first day of Spring - YAY! - and it's also my dad's 83rd birthday! (He's shooting for 100!) I was thinking of doing a spring theme for his birthday card until I found this cute canine image while rooting through my Box O' Card Kits. I thought it would be perfect because, after all, Daddy IS the "big dog" in the family! LOL!
The layout is inspired by SCS Card Sketch #242. I sponged the edges of the patterned paper (thanks Mary!) with walnut distress ink, and used a Nestie tag for the computer sentiment that I sponged with blue. A fun ribbon brad (thanks Roxane!), plaid ribbon, flowers, and basic brads finished the card. Inside I'll write, To the Big Dog of the Family . . . Happy Birthday! I think he'll get a kick out of it!
I also wanted to share a picture I snapped of one of the construction contractors working outside our office building. It struck me as funny because I imagined he could be thinking, Oh no - that's the second cell phone this month! The wife is gonna kill me! Ha-ha!
ANYWHO, thanks for stopping by today! And remember, you have until tomorrow at midnight to enter for a chance at my Spring-A-Licious blog candy! Have a stamptacular evening!
