Old Buzzard

Well yesterday was my Dad's birthday and we went over for a visit and supper. Lance got all of the yearlings hauled on Friday, so he was able to come with us which was nice. We stopped in town first to get Kirsten and Landon a baseball glove, bat and ball, so now they are all ready for T-Ball tomorrow night. Landon is officially too young to play, but we can still play around at home with him, so it should be fun. I played ball for a few years and loved it, so I hope they enjoy it like I did. Kirsten got a pink bat and 2 pink balls, so she is all set!!

I made this card for my Dad. I don't have the sentiment that goes with it, "Ya Old Buzzard", so I didn't put anything on the outside, but I did put a sentiment on the inside that I got from River City Rubber Works with my secret santa gift cert from my SBS sister. Everyone got a kick out of it too, but I definitely think you need to give it to the right person....not everyone would find it funny!!

So here is the outside...using High Hopes Buzzard

I used BG Marrakech Papers and buttons, SU Pacific Point and Chocolate Chip cs and some hemp twine from CTMH. Cut most of my circle with my nesties and then left the balloons out, covered them in liquid glass and stacked 2 scallop circles to mat it on.

Here is the inside...simple enough, but thought it worked well for a "guy" card...

Kirsten wasn't feeling great yesterday and not really today, so we've just been laying low. We just got up from a great snooze and this is her second one today, so I hope she is feeling better!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful rest of your Sunday!
