Happy Birthday, Dad!


Happy Thursday! And Happy Birthday to my dad!


As I was sitting in my stamp room Tuesday afternoon, I had this sudden feeling like "I'm forgetting something!" Then I always go to "What month is it? Whose birthday is it?" Does anyone else do this?! Luckily I had time to whip this little card up, run to Lowe's for a gift card, and get it mailed in time! Schwooo!


I used the retired stamp set It's Your Birthday, still one of my fave birthday sets, and the Play Date designer series paper. I picked the part of the paper starting with high numbers, just to be ornery, he's not really close to 89, heh! heh! I was inspired by this teacher card by Charity Hassel I saw for Sketch #179 over at CPS. I am totally nuts over her card!


So I survived the first day back to school yesterday, although I've gotten a little *soft* over the summer! It officially started at noon, but I worked in my room all morning and got a lot done. I think it's going to be a great year!


Hope your week is going well! It's almost Friday! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Happy belated birthday to your dad. Great design. As Savitri say "me likey" too!

I can't believe you started school already. My nieces in NM start tomorrow. Kalino doesn't start until the 30th.
