For His 93rd Birthday

Oh my goodness...can it really have been over a year since my last post?  Well, yes...but I have been so involved in the activities of this thing called "life".  From the depths of sadness and sorrow to the joy found in the warmth of love from family and friends I've been "busy".  Longing for the return to paper crafts and finally finally.....taking the time to make and post this "simple" card to honor my fathers 93rd Birthday.  He has a great love of anything Eagles, so this Northwoods stamp was a 'must have' when I bought it several years ago (first time to use lol!) He also received degrees from the University of Kansas and so the JayHawker may seem an odd embellishment for the ribbon bow....but for my dad...perfect!  I colored and added dimension just to the Eagle portion of the stamped image.  The frame I created with the Spellbinders label and oval was embossed before being mounted over the eagle image.  Candis were colored with copics and placed in each corner.
Happy Birthday Dad.....
