No, this isn't my 70th card of the year. I sure wish I could claim that, as I would love to have that kind of output in my cardmaking.
Rather, this is the card I made to celebrate my Dad's 70th birthday. As a kid even, he insisted that I make his Father's Day and birthday cards, rather than buy them from a store. It seems like every time I make a card for my Dad, it always is very whimsical, juvenile-like, rather than masculine. Oh well, maybe that's my way of holding onto childhood and the look of those cards I made him early on in my life.
The bear image is from Darcie and was stamped with Marvy dye black ink onto coated paper. I colored the image with Copic markers. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado. Patterned paper, colored cardstock and ribbon were also used to create this card.
I'm celebrating being able to celebrate his 70th birthday. He's such a great dad.

ROSE BOWL BOUND BUCKEYES!!!
But, the most important game is the one on Saturday against scUM. Going to the Rose Bowl will not be as sweet if we don't take care of business in Ann Arbor this weekend.
I decided that I wanted to use this adorable peeing dog image from Eat Cake Graphics and have him pee on a scUM letter "M". Ingenious,huh? The letter is from an alphabet set from All Night Media. The football is an old image from PSX.
The dog image and football are stamped with Marvy black dye ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and are colored with Copic markers and some slight Prismacolor pencil shading. The "M" is stamped using a Zig Color Brush Marker directly to stamp. Highlights of yellow were added around the letter. I drew the pee myself. :-)
Patterned paper, colored cardstock, ribbons and brads were also used to complete this card.
The inside sentiment reads, "Let's Potty, Buckeye Style".
And that is what we shall do, when we beat the snot out of the Wolveweenies! Go Buckeyes!!!
