Happy Birthday Dad!


Well, today is my Daddy-o's birthday!! This whole month is really special for him because he also retires in about....a week! I'm so excited for he and my Mom. They've worked hard all their lives and are really looking forward to this new chapter!

My Dad is the most inspirational man in my life. He and my Mom came over to Canada from England a couple of months after they got married. They only had their luggage and $200!! Everything they have, they have earned through very hard work. They raised my brother and I (not an easy task), put us through school and now have two gorgeous grandchildren (if I do say so myself). I wish we lived closer and could spend more time together but hopefully now that they will be retiring, we can see each other more often.

My Dad is also a really fun guy with a great sense of humour....good thing too, because this is the card I made him for his birthday!!!

Hehe!! I used a GinaK designs set and an SU Simply Scrappin' set with cardstock, patterned paper and die cuts. I stamped the main image on Wausau bright white cardstock and coloured this ol' coot in using my Copic markers. I used my new Nestabilities to cut it out and emboss it.




Now my Dad doesn't look anything like this old guy but I knew he would think it was funny!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!! *giggle*

I'm off to work early today, my last day for the weekend. Tonight is Emileigh's semi-formal dance at the high school, so hopefully we'll get some great photos of she and her boyfriend and best girlfriend and I'll be able to share them with you next week!!
