Happy Birthday, Gramps

Hi Y'all,

     Tomorrow is Gramps' birthday...my father-in-law....  He's is a very nice man who collects clocks and loves my cats so in my book he's good!!!!

I made a card for him that I hope he likes.



I used the Tattered Angels Clock stamp and Glitter Screen along with glimmer mist on a chipboard background.  The design paper is DCWV Mariposa collection.  Base is craft.  The sentiment is Inkadinkadoo and the kitty paper clip is from Staples...I used my new Making Memories paper and ribbon slot punching tool to punch the holes for the black ribbon from my stash.  The embellishment is an old earring from one of  my thrift store hauls.









Come back and visit soon.....

What a fantastic card for your Grandpa in a theme he loves! How sweet of you-and how lucky you get to share his special day with him! Lovely accent with the cat inside as well. TFS
