Happy Birthday Dad!!

Thursday is my dad's birthday!!!  It is always so very very hard to get anything for him.  What do you buy someone who has everything he wants???  Well... I know one thing will be easy... a card from me.  He always loves my cards and I love designing one especially for him.  He has always been an outside guy and Theresa Momber's set, "Farm Life" was perfect for a manly card. 

I stamped the wheat image and added the sentiment from Theresa's, "Hope Grows".  I think it's kind of hard to see here, but I also covered the oval with some Glimmer Mist to add a bit of sparkle.

I used my Cuttlebug Embossing folder Bird Call to add a bit more dimension to the card.  After I embossed it, I ran over it with a a sanding block just to bring it out a bit more.  I sponged the edges of the entire card with some Vivid Butterscotch ink.

Oh yeah.... I decided to bring my dad into the "hundies" (hee hee) by getting him an iPod Shuffle.  I remember how much he use to love using his Walkman when he mowed the yard or worked out in his garage.  This is tiny enough and not to complicated that I think he will really enjoy it.  (I made sure I got him green too.... so as not to compete with his camo when he goes hunting. HA!)

Don't forget the blog candy below!!!  Leave a comment and win some stamps!!!

Have a great day!! *smile*
