More candles? Bigger the wish!


Today I have a fun card to share.

My mom requested a birthday card for a special birthday.  Her & my dad just started going to our local Coco's for breakfast every Monday to hang out with some of the seniors who my dad used to bowl with.  From what I hear there's a good number of them that show up and they stay there for a few hours, eat, and talk story.  They are all retired or semi-retired so they have the time to hang out. When she asked for a card for a guy who was turning 87 I wracked my brain.  I searched some of my go to stamp companies for a digi, but found none.  I found this free image on the internet via Pinterest.  It was perfect!!  I also found the perfect sentiment to go with it.  I've been loving the blues so I kept it blues and golds here.  That patterned paper is actually washi paper from Hanko Designs which worked out perfectly.  Definitely had fun here.

Well that's all for now.  I hope you all have a great Wednesday!!  Thanks for stopping by!

Ho Leanne, you found the PERFECT sentiment. I had a good laugh when I read it. The birthday "boy" will get a kick from your cool card. Wowie, he (the guy on the card) better not blow the candles too hard, got some major flames there. Hee-hee. Have a happy rest-of-the-week.
