My husband and I will be in church today, each teaching an Easter lesson to our respective classes, but it is also my dad’s 85th birthday! The family gathered yesterday to celebrate Dad, and one funny thing that happened is that everyone gave him the same thing – Taco Bell gift cards! You can’t mess with success – it’s his favorite casual dining spot with grandson John. He figures they’re good through at least June for Chalupas, Burritos and works.
Here is the card I made for my dad, using the Number of Years Photopolymer stamp set, plus a greeting from the Suite Sentiments set and a bitty butterfly from Papillon Potpourri (both retiring as of May 31st!)
I always try to do my best when making a card for my dad, because he was my first Art Teacher and everything that I do with paper and ink I can thank him for, as his influence and inspiration will always be with me.
Here are the colors that I used on my dad’s Best Guy Ever card:
Dad went to pick up the mail during the festivities, and there was a hand-crafted card from Kathy Degree, a perfect complement to the German Chocolate cake:
We are so happy that we can honor our dad for the full and exemplary life that he has led.
