Cowboy Birthday Card


  This was fun. My father-in-law, Rod turned 90 this past November. He reads novels constantly and one author he likes is Zane Grey, who writes westerns.
  I found this cowboy image on Pinterest. I put it through Pixlr, a web photo editing program (FREE!) and made it vintage looking and added the text.
  Lot of textures going on here! Everything from cardboard sprayed with Glimmer Mists, cardboard covered in beeswax, drywall tape, TH Kraft Glassine paper, jute, staples, button, metal sheet embossed and then coloured with alcohol ink, and a safety pin! Whew! Good to keep those scraps because they can be useful in the future!


The inside. The paper used is from BoBunny Etc. 6x6 paper pad set.

Here is the birthday boy with his cake!

  I hope that if I live to be 90, I'm still reading, doing crosswords, on the computer and still physically able to get about on my own, like Rod!

  Well, Monday's coming up. Going to a concert tonight. Serena Ryder. Looking forward to a night of great music!


Have a fabulous week!
i made it myself!
