Happy Birthday Dad!

Today is my Dad's birthday! Believe it or not, I even had his card made before his birthday! And I got to hand deliver it this year! Every Friday I go and visit my Granny in the nursing home and this week, my Mom asked me if I wanted to come over for supper after my visit! Mom's need to ask twice!!!!! Of course I said yes, so after a very nice visit with Granny, and very nice visit with my friend Marion, I went out to the farm for dinner with my parents! This time of year it's always questionable if you are going to see Dad or not. He is a farmer and this is a busy time of year with the working ground, planting, chores etc. Mother Nature was on my side a bit last night and it was a little too wet for Dad to work, so he was able to hang out and visit.

I love my visits with my parents, we always have good conversations, and they always give me 'lots' to think about.

So for dad's card this year, I did a Hanna Stamps meets High Hopes card!

I stamped the straw bales in the front from the Barnyard Hanna set and the High Hopes scene in the back and coloured with Copics. I sponged colour around. Then I stamped Pin up Hanna and the sheep from Barnyard Hanna and coloured them with the Copics. I cut them out and put Hanna on the bale of straw and the sheep in front of the bale of straw. Then I just stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment and punched it out with an oval. I struggle with sentiments and greetings sometimes....where to put them...making sure they are grounded. But all in all, I'm happy how it turned out.
Today - I am thankful for - My Parents.

Chow for now
