Happy Birthday, Dear Dad!

Happy Birthday, Dad!

Our family has quite a few birthdays in August and two of them were this last weekend. Actually, the oldest and youngest men in our family! My Dad was one of them. I thought I would share the card I made for him  along with one of my favorite pictures of him.

At school, in Germany, age thirteen.

And a little more up-to-date!
My Dad on the right, his twin in the middle (yep, they're twins!) and my brother on the left. Now, I do have to say that if any one of these three guys knew they were on my blog they .... well, I'm not sure they're going to find out! You're not telling, right?
Dad, we love you muchly! Right to the moon and back and wish you a year of health and happiness!

And here's the little guy that turned one!
He's our youngest grandson and he's a sweetie.
Cody bug, you're the best! Love you bunches!

Here is how I custom sized the label.
Stamp sentiment. Die cut one label,
off centering the sentiment
Die cut it again, scooting the card stock over so the
sentiment is centered


The Vintage Trinket Brads - love them!
And Brushed Bronze Buttons!
About the card - check out the wonderful Natural Composition Specialty paper, the Bronze Designer Buttons and the perfect little Vintage Trinket Brads.

Hi. Just discovered your blog...love Pinterest!! Quick question--what sort of tape did you use to hold the die and the cardstock in place?

Love your work.

I use Scotch brand removeable tape - it works wonderfully!
