Happy Birthday Dad

My DH's birthday was not long ago.  My son approached me about a birthday card for him.  I told him I would help him with paper choices and sketch to select from, but I was not going to help him beyond that.  I would supply other things if he couldn't find them himself...like the tape and how to use the Big Shot.  ( Why did I insist on HIM doing it...you may ask?  My DH gave me no card for my birthday ... not even a gift.  I even suggested a little note would thrill me.  My birthday came...nothing...not even a note.  Therefore, I wasn't about to make a card for DH and I really think the time my son put into his father's birthday card would be remembered and mean more at the end.

So here is his card.  I keep a small box of colored images and die cuts ready for a "moment's notice" and he chose the fun From the Heart Stamp called Birdbrain Brew and a beer mug I had bought awhile back from Silhouette.  I'm very proud of his completed card.

  2. He did a fabulous job! Love those birdbrain images!

  3. Your son did an awesome job! And good for YOU not helping...don't blame you one bit!!


  4. Well done. Your son did a great job. When I first saw the card and saw the colored image, I thought what wow coloring and he must take about his mom. Then I read that you keep a box of colored images on hand... Bet your husband love his card!

  5. Your son really made that? What a fab job! So....your DH still hasn't gotten the hint?

  6. Nice job on your son's card. Next birthday, just go out and get yourself something real nice, and then thank him for it!!


  7. This is too stinkin' cute Cely...I am loving these cards you're making with this bird. I just went to her site to see them. They are so adorable. Your dad is going to love this. P.S. I LOVE your new profile picture!!

  8. Your son did a fabulous job, must take after his mother! I tend to agree with the comment about buying yourself something nice on your next birthday, and thanking DH for it, lol!

  9. I think this is the most perfect son-to-father card ever, Cely! Good choice to have him do it. :-D
