Goofy Birthday

Good Morning! I was finishing up my card making binge and my hubby says to me, "Can you make a card for Lynn's grandfather who is turning 81?" Well I mean I was a little blurry eyed and thought what kind of card do you make a man turning 81? He tells me he likes fishing, wildlife and that is about it. I do not have any fishing stamps and just couldn't think of anything and then I remembered the gruffie with the cake. I pulled out my sentiments and the first one I saw was this one and I love it and can never find the right card to put it on. THIS was it. The image is colored with copics and then I added some stickles to his cake. The paper is from a Basic Grey Two Scoops and the colors all worked well with my Blue Bayou from SU. Simple, not too frilly and kind of funny, figured when you turn 81 you just gotta laugh at those birthdays! Then I find out that Lynn had asked Hubby to ask me to make him a card- had I known that I would have made him a few to choose from but it was already 11pm on Sunday and I had no energy left so I hope he likes it!
