Happy Birthday Dad

It's been a tough few months for my fabulous Dad, but he's hanging on in there following surgery to hopefully stop the spread of the big C.  He's now struggling a bit with the whole idea of eating little and often as he grew up on 3 square meals a day, but he's getting there slowly.  My Mum is working her magic and adapting too to helping Dad follow this new regime.  We've also learned to take her out for 'real' meals as well.

However it's celebration time today as it is Dad's birthday. I've made hime this card as he does mean the world to me and my family, but he is also a big star in my eyes.  He's been a great sounding board in my life and a good friend.  Have a lovely Dad.

Now what did I do.  I embossed the globe stamp from Stampin Up Going Global set in white and then spritz the piece of watercolour card with water before adding drops of ink using an aqua painter as my dipper dropper!  I punched out the world, ooh that sounds grand, then used circle thinlits to cut the pacific point circle border.  I've punched out various stars including one from the sea and also some epoxy accent star stickers.  My happy birthday is from Something to Say on the retired list.

Once again HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD - have a great day.

Hugs Zx
