Hippo Birdie 2 Ewe

It's been much too long since I've been here to post a creation - let's just say, life gets in the way sometimes!  I really want to be better about it - and it hasn't been that I haven't been creating - I just haven't had the time to photograph and post as much.  Well, I'm here today to change that!

I created this card for my father's 91st birthday - hard to believe he's 91 when you meet him... I think most people would say he's in his early 80's the way he looks and acts.  I am amazed by this man so much.  

I needed something totally unique for this occasion - enter inspiration from Torrey - and voila!  It came together easily...  She can be a thousand miles away, and she is still inspiring me, each and every day!

I used a bunch of Lawn Fawn products including the hippo and birdie stamps, the hills, grass and fence border dies and the words hippo and birdie.  The "2" is just handwritten, and the sheep and EWE word are from My Favorite Things.  I used a cloud stencil from My Favorite Things as well as some Distress Inks to create the cloud background.  The hay bail stamp is from an older farm set that honestly, I can't source - not sure who makes it.  All images were stamped on textured cardstock and colored with my Prisma's, then fussy cut.  The patterned papers were all just from my scraps.

Amazing milestone for your father! Congrats to him to be enjoying life in his 90s! My maternal grandma lived to be almost 94, so it would be wonderful if I could be so blessed. Your card is so darling! It's a charmer and sounds as if your dad is too. Beautifully made. Thanks for sharing this week at PPCC blog! Becca ~DT
