“Nothing is dearer to an old father than a daughter.” – Euripedes
My dad, who is a champion candlepin bowler, turns 80 this week. I made this card for him and used the party theme from this week’s Global Design Project for inspiration. (www.global-design-project.com). Our computer is on the blink again (we keep losing internet connection), so it will be a miracle if I can get this post shared via my phone!
I made the candlepin bowling pins and bowling ball with the Work of Art stamp set. The words come from the Number of Years stamp set and the “80” is cut with the Large Numbers Framelits. The card bases are cut with the Circles Framelits. I wanted a round base to compliment the round bowling ball! Happy Birthday Dad! Love, Dawn

We have a leap year baby in our family who is turning 21 this year! 21 in leap years, 84 in “real time” and we’ll be celebrating with a big party this weekend! I had planned to make the birthday card today, and was happy to see a new Paper Pals color challenge to use for inspiration (www.palspaperarts.com). The colors are Night of Navy, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzaz for the PPA289 challenge.
For the butterfly and spots on the bottom of the envelope I used the Watercolor Wings stamp set, for the bow on the flowers on the envelope I used the Celebrate Today stamp set and for the flowers and the sentiment I used the Number of Years stamp set. The Number of Years set is such a great “go to” set, along with the Large Number Framelits for cutting out numbers!
We have another birthday in the family today, her card will be added to my previous butterfly post. Happy Birthday Ashley! Love, Dawn
