It’s hard to believe my Dad is turning 77! He seems so young. Last year when we were in Hawaii, we had a Kayak race and he and Sean won! He was by far the oldest person on our tour that involved kayaking, hiking about two miles in knee deep mud to a waterfall and then swimming at the waterfall. Dad took it all in stride and made it look easy. When he would have my kids visit in North Carolina, he would take them horseback riding, bike riding, climbing waterfalls and white water rafting. Yep, he’s up for the Grandpa of the Year Award!
I used this sketch from SundayStamps for the inspiration for the card. When I showed the card to Superman, he said it looks like Dad must be an Ohio State fan. Well, he’s not. He is a graduate of Iowa State and loves watching Cyclone Football and Basketball. Unfortunately their colors are Cardinal and Gold. Guess I wasn’t thinking.
Can you see the piercing all the way around the oval. I thought it was a nice touch.
Abby thinks one of the best things about Grandpa is all the stories he tells. She’s been taping his stories and hopes to help him write his life story.
Keegan had his audition for James and the Giant Peach today. He thought it went pretty well. I’ll let you know what part he gets. He goes to a big school, so sometimes the part might be Peach Tree #37 or something like that. 🙂
Hope you’re having an awesome week and I hope you have a great birthday Dad!
You can see the Happy Heart embossing folder I used on Dad’s card is on sale this week. Here’s the link to my store to purchase the weekly deals or anything else at Stampin’ Up! Also take a look at the Ultimate Starter Bundle below.
