The Most Wonderful People in the World!

It's MONDAY! Hooray!

I know that for many people Monday is not their favorite day of the week. Well, I am not sure it is mine either, however, I do love the sketches at MojoMonday's so yippee! Today there is a new sketch . You can go check it out by clicking on their blinky just over on the right.

Today I have made a card for a very special man in my life. He is my dad, and I love him with all my heart. This card will be for his birthday which is in March.

I have used a sketch that was offered last week from , another wonderful sketching site.  I used some very old bone buttons which I found on ebay several years ago.  I tied them with raffia and placed them on some burlap which helps to give a feeling of the antique.  The back anchor paper is from Michael's and I also thought it had an antique feeling to it. I choose to use the words "Celebrate This Day" from a stamping set I purchased from Walmart.  I inked with an antique brown to add the final touch to this card. All in all I am happy with the way the card turned out.

These are the challenges I will be entering with this card:
