Happy Birthday Dad

It's my fabulous Dad's birthday today. He's in his 80's and would love to be able to fish again, but sadly health doesn't allow, but he still has a wicked sense of humour and we're going to celebrate in style.  So it's a big whoop whoop HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD day.

I made him a floating frame card using the Stampin' Up! Best Catch set.  I remember as a child going fishing on holiday out at sea and I found that small boat rocking was not the best day of my holibobs.  I'll not say anymore on that subject today though. 

I used the stamps and dies from this wonderful bundle to stamp and cut out lots of fishing images.  I also used the Well Said dies to create my framed sentiment.  I'm pleased to share that the Best Catch stamp set and dies are carrying on in the new annual Stampin' Up! catalogue when the spring catalogue ends, but they won't be listed as a bundle so if you like the bundle and want to save 10% get it now before the end of May.  You can see the individual products or the bundle in Zoe's Stampin' Up! Shop. 

I stamped some images, but the hats I embossed with black embossing powder to give a little more texture and I'm afraid I used retired Not Quite Navy card, but you could use any colour for a fisherman's hat.  Some of the dies speak for themselves like the fish and the Merry Merlot hooks. 

So now it's time for cake so I must dash, but before I go here is the card I made from the floating images cut from the centre of the card. 

A simple happy birthday  from Itty Bitty Sentiments makes this a great masculine birthday card especially if they like to fish. 

Enjoy the sunshine.
