Happy Birthday Dad!!

Howdy friends, I hope you are having a fabulous week. Mine has been very good, some of which I will save for later posts, so watch for more than one post today.

I finally made a waterfall card! I have been wanting to make one for years and
found a video on You Tube about a week ago that really made it easy to create. Click on the words "You Tube " above to go to the video. If you look at the side bar under related videos, you will see other waterfall card videos, if you need inspiration. Dawn Griffiths is really good too!

This card was for my Father-in-laws Birthday on February 20Th. He already has it and Mark (hubby) says that he kept playing with it all evening. I thought that alone was a big compliment.

Dad likes clocks and usually for his Birthday, I try to make him a clock card of some kind. This year I was at a loss as to what to do and when I saw this video it hit me that it was perfect.

This is the front with the waterfall.

I also decorated the inside of the card. I used 2 ivory colored pieces
of card stock and sponged the edges with Brown Timber ink by PSX.
That is the ink I used for the whole card.
Supplies: Green c/s...Unknown, Lighter Green Decorative heavy weight double sided paper, Unknown (Not very good at keep track of papers...sorry! I will try to keep track of new papers received, but have tons of unknown, so it will be hit & miss!) Stamps: Time...Raindrops on Roses, Dad...That's all she stamped, The Lord Bless you....Stampendous, Wishing you a day of Memories....Penny Black, Happy Birthday...all Night Media. Others....Clock Stickers, Brads and Jute Twine for pull.
I wish you a wonderful weekend and leave you with this:
For He shall give his Angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all ways.....Psalms 91:11
P.S. Thank you for your wonderful comments and I love getting them.
