Pa's birthday gift (all about Pa this week)

Top O' the morning to ya (said in my best Irish brogue). I am feeling a wee bit Irish today (or perhaps just crazy from the lack of sleep). As promised I am posting the gift I made for my dad. It is so hard to buy him anything because he has everything and buys what he doesn't have. He posted these pictures on Facebook from a party that all of his brothers were at (a rarity) and I thought I am going to do something with that picture. So here is it is.

I bought some new paper from Cosmo Cricket and then started tearing it (Kel move right there) and I used Coordinations paper and sanded that down to give it a vintage feel. Magic Mesh from StampinUP! and Brothers is cute from Heritage Cartridge.

I bought a frame at AC Moore and done!
My dad is the one on the far right with the cowboy like shirt, hence Dawn's card from yesterday. The man is born and bred in Massachusetts moves to Texas for the winters and thinks he is a cowboy!


  1. This is absolutely STUNNING in person!!! You did a fine, fine job, my friend! He is going to LOVE it!

  2. LOL he thinks he's a cowboy!! I guess that's ok right?! This is such a nice gift.
