Happy Birthday to my Dad

Earlier this week it was my Dad's birthday.  I had made his card a while ago as I saved postage and sent his Father's Day card, this birthday card and one for my brother ( his birthday is Saturday) all at one time.  I rang and had a nice chat with Dad on his birthday .... two calls in one week!

I did some embossing and some die cutting and some distressing as well.  The photo is, of course, the birthday boy.  I used a Hero Arts sentiment cut as a banner.   The  clock is a Spellbinders die that I have had for quite some time but never used.  (It had been on a half price sale) 

I miss having my parents close by so was lovely to talk to them over the weekend and again on Tuesday evening.  Mum and I write each other a big long e-mail once a week.... just like writing a letter to her but instant postage!  Miss you guys!!!!!  ( that's 'cause I know Mum reads this!)

entering this into the challenge at Simon Says Stamp ~ embossing.  My background is a Sizzix embossing folder. 

Well I've got 5 ATC's to make for a swap so that's my night planned.  Hubby is out of the country for 3 nights ~ work trip to Singapore so I'm making the most of the ME time.

Take care

Your Dad must have loved his card Dawn! Yes, it's crappy being far away from our parents, I only just recently moved closer to my Mom.

What a terrific card for your dad, Dawn--happy birthday to him! I love that clock die cut, the colors, using a picture of him--everything makes this so special!
