Are you a relic?

Hello everyone!  I have a funny birthday card today.  We had 'the bobs' last week.  This week is the shop managers birthday.  Duane has known Bob since he was a little boy.  It was Duane's wish to someday work with Bob.  Well for the past 9 years he has.  Couldn't ask for a better shop manager.  Each year I make an apple pie and a birthday card.  Here is what I came up with for this year.  (yes, bob and duane could be father and son. they look so much alike)  Here is the lyrics...

~Scrap Factory program (get it if you haven't)
     Body-No open toes
     Outfit-Couples suit 6
~ScrappyDew Fossil Hunters view #3
~Bing search for Cheese tower jpeg
~Recollections Scraps
~Paper Accents for card base
~Black Contact Paper
~Dino footprint Vector File Converted to svg
~Inkadinkado Happy Birthday Stamp
~Ranger Liquid Pearls
~SCAL V4.049 cutting software
~Silver Bullet Pro 24" cutter
***you imagine what tools I use***

So here is the card I created.  I hope that Duane gets the humor.

Card and envelope

He got the apple pie on Thursday and will get the card on Monday.  So happy that I can make something that puts a smile on his face.

Next week another birthday card.  Slowly getting back in the groove....

Bright Blessings for a fantastic week for you!

Today is my husband Bob's birthday.  I try to treat him like a king everyday.  Some would say that I am a 50's housewife.  But in return I am also treated like a queen!  So I try to make him birthday cards that reflect either his passion for boating or his love of working on any sort of engine.  The engines won out for this year.  But lyrics first...

Bright blessings, Jana
