Where has the time gone?!! I had a fantastic weekend. As some of you may know, our son was adopted from Peru 23 years ago. We always made it a priority to keep in touch with the families who were in our adoption group at the time. We haven't been too good about keeping in touch over the last couple of years; however, on Friday, we rectified that. It was wonderful to see the children who are now amazing young men and women. It was nice to see that everyone easily related to each other like no time has passed.
This weekend was my Dad's birthday. We went to out to dinner and had strawberry shortcake for dessert when we got home. In honor of the occasion, I made this card for him.
Just about everything used here is from Tim Holtz (including the twine) except for the Prima flowers and brad and Bead Landings gears. I simply layered the cardstock. Pinking shears were used to create the map frame which was then attached with foam dots for dimension. I made the banner and inked it with Tea Dye Distress Ink. Of course, I found it hard to stay away from adding a flower. It originally was cream color so I just colored it randomly with Distress Inks in Tea Dye, Forest Moss and Broken China. The brad is from the Prima Engraver line.

That's about it for today. I do have more to share and hope to be back in a couple of days. Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment.
