Happy Birthday, Dad

Hello & Happy Sunday!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
The weather here in PA couldn't be more perfect! Last nite the hubby & I went on a "date night" as he called it. We went to the Dallastown Carnival with our friends, Edgar, Amy & lil Dominic. He's so cute and growing like a weed! He's 5 months old and got 2 teeth already! The weather was awesome and we had a good time with them! :)

Anyways, today is my Dad's 77th birthday and yesterday I sat down and made him a card. I had this card in mind for awhile but sometimes getting it to come out the way you picture it is another story!

I'm not sure what type of card this is but I had made one of these several years ago. I usually just label them as a different fold card. 

Here is the card.....

Dad's Birthday Card:

Stamps: Wonderful Woodcuts (retired), Sailing Away (retired), Perfectly Penned, Sentiment from Schooner (retired)
Ink: Memento Black, Not Quite Navy, Copic Markers
Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Sahara Sand, Georgia Pacific White, Whisper White, Nautical Expedition DSP
Accessories: Silver Circle Clip, Sahara Sand Grosgrain, Dimensionals, Stamp A Ma Jig, Scor Tape

Simple, easy & fun to make and for once it turned out the way I pictured it in my head!
Hopefully this evening we will get to visit my Dad for a bit. 
77 birthdays is a big milestone and every minute spent with him is special! :)

And below is a picture of my awesome hubby holding Dominic last evening at the carnival. He is such a sweet & pleasant little boy. We were passing him back & forth to give his mom & dad a break as they were playing games and winning him lots of stuffed animals! Just look at those cheeks and big blue eyes! Cuuuuute! :)

Well, that is all for today!
Stay tuned for tomorrow....time for another sketch from Merry Mondays!
Till then.....enjoy the rest of the weekend and thanks for stopping by!
