Happy 65th Larkin!!

Hello, hello! I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!! We didn't really do much of anything here today. Lance tidied up around the yard and that's about all.
Tomorrow is my FIL's 65th birthday, so I made this card for him. We are all going for brunch tomorrow along with my SIL, niece, Lance's aunt Linda and a few other friends. We bought him a digital picture frame and I already uploaded it with pictures for him, so he just can plug it in and away he goes.
I used my friend Nikki's sketch and really like it. She has just started a new blog for all her sketches and has some really awesome ones!! Her main blog rocks as well!
I embossed the main image with Espresso embossing powder and used all CTMH papers from the Sasparilla pack, love those!! I then used my new Unity stamps for the 2 circle embellies up in the corner. I put the Happy Birthday sentiment on the inside as I didn't really leave enough room on the front. I actually finished the inside of the card as well, but totally forgot to take a picture...
Off I scoot to get the children..and hubby to bed, it's waaaaaay past their bedtime, good thing tomorrow isn't a school day:-)
Have a wonderful evening and a great Sunday!
