Happy Birth-DAY!



Hello, I haven’t had much time recently to play along with any challenges in blog-land but today I finally have something to share.  I wanted to get out one of my favorite block stamps and do a little pencil coloring.  This is one of those stamps that doesn’t take much effort to color with great results.  I am going to link this card up over at Inkspirational where the word is Day.

The sentiment and tag die are Verve, the button die is MFT.

I hope this post finds you well and you have found a way to be happy today!  The weather is finally cooler…YEAH, so hubby and I went for a long walk.  The fresh air can really help heal the soul. Then we stopped for coffee and that helped too!

Before I go, this man turns 90 today.  I love him so and I think he loves me too…hopefully as much as he loves his dog.  It is questionable though. He gets tears in his eyes when he talks about her.  Thanks to Covid and his stubbornness there will be no celebration.  I finally talked him into cake tonight but that only worked because I told him ASH (the dog) could get another walk. Then he is like okay she would love that. LOL

Happy Birthday DAD!

  1. Beautiful birthday card design.

  2. It’s quite possible your dad gets a tear in his eye when he talks to about about you, you know. Happy birthday to him! Your card is gorgeous! I really like the little pops of orange. Thanks for joining us at Inkspirational!

  3. I love this design, Nanc’! You did a beautiful job with the pencil coloring and I love the handmade DSP background! You know, of course, that your sweet Dad and Ash stole the show! Happy milestone birthday to him! That’s true love! Keep well. Hugs, Darnell

  4. Your coloring is lovely. So happy your dad let you help him celebrate that milestone–even if it wasn’t quite what you had in mind!

  5. He may act like a tough guy, but I bet he gets those tears in his eyes for you too. I love this technique for this card. I was just looking at one that I did ages ago and said I need to do that more often. Your coloring is amazing and love your design.

  6. This is lovely. It’s a beautifully coordinated card, I like how you used the stamp as the main element and for the background as well. Thanks for joining our challenge at Inkspirational.

  7. Lovely card! And Happy Birthday to your father!
