Happy Birthday, Dad!

Lightning struck our internet tower the day before Father’s Day. So I wasn’t able to post this until today. But that’s OK because today is my Dad’s birthday. Below is Father’s Day card that I made for him.

Let me say that my dad is an amazing man! I have really enjoyed living next door to him these past three-plus years. We have a lot of similar interests and working with him is fun and a learning experience. He is wise, practical, a problem solver, and a man of many excellent abilities. God gave me an amazing gift when he gave me my Dad.

Today’s envelope art…Cattails.jpg

My grandmother learned many adorable poems and songs when she was in school. She sang them to my mother during Mom’s growing up years. Lately, Mom┬áhas been singing snippets of them. Yesterday, she quoted the above poem about the cattails and I knew I wanted to put that on an envelope. I can’t say the artwork is my own this time . I had quite a bit of help from a piece of clipart.

Enjoy nature.
