Happy Birthday Fella!!!

Today is my Grandfather's 91st Birthday!!! He has always been 'Fella' to me - apparently it came about as a speech error when I was little and it stuck! :) I feel very blessed to have such a wonderful man for a grandfather who has always been a big part of my life.

I started with and Old Olive base (Fella LOVES green!!), layered with Chocolate Chip, White and a piece of Windsor Knot DSP. I then added a strip of striped Windsor Knot to the side and knotted some Certainly Celery twill (that my Bestie Pam124 sent me) around it. Underneath the knot I tucked a piece of white that has the sentiment from Warmest Regards (retired) in Old Olive and sponged with a bit of Close to Cocoa. (Don't faint Linda - I actually sponged!!! LOL!!) The main panel image is from For Father and stamped in Jet Black Stazon and coloured with markers. It's been cut out with the Lg Circle Nestabilities and mounted on a piece of Baja Breeze cut with the Label 3 Nestabilities. I've pierce around the circle and popped the whole panel up on foam tape.
Stamps - For Father, Warmest Regards (SU)
Paper - Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, White, Baja Breeze, Windsor Knot DSP
Ink - Jet Black Stazon, Old Olive, Close to Cocoa
Accessories - Label 3 Nestabilities, Lg Circle Nestabilities, Certainly Celery Twill, markers, blender pen, paper piercer, mat pack, sponge, foam tape.
That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!! :)

Hi Kathy,

Very nice card for a very nice 'Fella'. Please tell him 'Happy 91st.' for me. I don't know him, but you speak so lovingly about him, I had to stop and comment!
