HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAD!

Today is my Dad's birthday, and when I saw THIS CARD on Wendy's blog, It's All About Stamping!, I knew I had to case it for my Dad. I fell in love with the simple, clean lines of this layout which could be used with any of Stampin' Up!'s designer papers. The stamp set, Circle of Friendship could easily be used in place of Riveting. Be sure to check out Wendy's blog ... LOVE her stampin' style!!!!!

I am really bad at using my retired stamping supplies like designer papers, ribbon, and cardstock, and am trying very hard to stop hoarding them. Pretty much everything on this card is retired except the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from the stamp set, It's Your Birthday and the Naturals Ivory and Chocolate Chip CS.

Love this card, it is such a great male card. Thought it was just me and spell check that were not seeing eye to eye, guess it is everyone.

Wow just adore this card! Perfect for a man and I'm sure your father will love it. Hope he has a wonderful Birthday! I always have a hard time with cards for the men. :)

This is a great manly card Nancy - I really like this! These are so hard for me to do, but yours came out perfect! And, yes, I am having problems with spell check too - not sure what is going on! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex
