Dad's 87th

I've been such a bad blogger!

I do apologize for not posting.  February and March are the months I make the most cards for birthdays and anniversaries and as soon as I finish one, I start a new one and then forget to photograph. Ugh!  It's so frustrating when I've already sent it or given it and then find out it isn't in my camera.

Anyway, I did remember a few so I would like to start with this one that I made for my father in law's 87th birthday.

No stamped images for this one, just lots of delicious dies.  The cake and stand are from the DooHickeys Club Volume 5 and the candles are from Club Volume 12.

The 87 was cut using a Sizzix die by Brenda Walton.

Happy Birthday to You is from Lawn Fawn.

The shaker was made with a spellbinders die that I have no idea what the name is and I'm too lazy to look up.  :P

All of the dies are either colored or edged with Distress Inks.  I used Faded Jeans, Fired Brick, Spiced Marigold, Wild Honey & Vintage Photo.

Thank You so much for stopping by and taking a look.  I will be posting another birthday card that I made for my sister as soon as I know she has received it.  Have an awesome day and better tomorrows.
