Belated Birthday

Hi there!  I'm just popping in to share a card I made recently for my Dad's birthday.  It was late which, unfortunately, seems to be my thing more and more as I get older.  Anyway, I used a CAS-ual Fridays set that I love and bought with my Dad in mind.  You see he's a big computer.....well...geek.  LOL.  He's been into computers right from the beginning.  Our first home computer was called The Pet.  Anyone, else remember those?  They were all one piece and, by today's standard, could do almost nothing!  :-).  They came before the Vic 20's and the Commodore 64's.  We had those too.  Man, it's no wonder I'm a big geek too!  LOL.  Anyway, this set seemed like it was made for my Dad.   Take a look at my card...

The set is called Tech Talk.  It was perfect for my belated card.  I basically stamped a collage of the majority of the stamps from the set using the pool to navy ombré ink pad by Hero Arts.  Then I masked off some narrow strips above and below and sponged the same ink created an ombré look.  Then I stamped my belated sentiment (STAMPlorations) in the same ink.  I really love how it turned out.  So did he.  :-)

Well, that's all for now.  Have a fantastic day and thanks for stopping by!
