Another owl card!

Yes, I do like owls LOL! It's my Dad's 80th birthday on Monday, I made my own card for him a while ago but my DD asked me to make one for her to give him too. I figured that at 80 years of age he must be a wise owl!

I used the sketch from CPS117 for the card. The chipboard owl is by Collections, I used the same technique as THIS CARD I did a while ago......this owl is a larger one though. The greeting is made with the Justrite Stamper tiny letters, the numbers are foam Thickers. Tree branch is from a Pink Paislee stamp set, PP is Christina Re.




We are going up to see Dad on Saturday as that is the only time we could all go together, and I'm really excited because my brother is making a visit from Townsville to surprise Dad for his birthday! I haven't seen him for over 2 years, he is bringing my 15yr old nephew too.......I bet he's grown heaps since last time I saw him. I pick them up from the airport on Friday.........cant' wait!
