Can Ya Handle ONE More??

It was my father-in-law's 80th birthday last night ... and he makes people half his age look like they are standing STILL. No kidding ... he works 10+ hours a day and on Saturday. He is amazing ...

We had a family get-together last night to celebrate. And because I had such a CRAZY day, I literally had about 25 minutes to make him a card. This is one of those rare occasions when I was able to go from concept to completion in such a short amount of time!!! This has happened to me TWICE in the last two weeks ... I think perhaps it was all the "down" time I have had the last 2 1/2 months. Maybe??

So here is what I came up with. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Now I gotta make ANOTHER "dude" card for my cousin. Seems like all the "dudes" in my family are having birthdays at the same time!!

Your card is beautiful...love it!
I found this on pinterest, however the link did not come back to your blog! It was a link to some bogus blog. Good think your watermark is on your picture...I googled your name and found your card here in the right spot! I did repin with the correct link. I don't get why someone is doing that - I've seen quite a few pins with that same bogus link. Irritates me!
Anyway, just wanted to stop by and say I love this card!
