I was awakened this morning by an earthquake! A small 3.5 magnitude one, but the epicenter is where I live, so it felt like a larger quake. After 20 years of living in California, I'm still amazed how our buildings can withstand this type of movement. My two Sweeties slept through it all.
March is the busiest birthday month in our families. You would think I could be better prepared...nope! My father-in-law's birthday was yesterday (my in-laws drove up from Southern California on Friday). I don't know about you, but I like to design a card with a particular person in mind. I can't reach into my stack and give them something I created last year. My husband gave me the idea for this hybrid Happy Birthday Grandpa card. My father-in-law loves fútbol (soccer) and I got this great picture of him at my son's soccer game last Fall. You may have noticed the bird on his head. That's Minnie. She goes everywhere my in-laws go.
I created this card super quick. I use Google's Picasa to manage my photos. I added the text to the photo using my favorite font, CK Becky before printing out the photo on Kodak paper. I love Kraft cardstock, so it was easy to put it all together. Have a good one!
