Happy Birthday Dad!

Mornin' hens!  Today is my Dad's birthday!  He's 79 today.  He loves getting my cards, so I really enjoy making them for him.  I used one of my FAV's from Stampendous.  I just love Fluffles the cat.  I found this sketch on Pinterest.  OMG, I don't think I can ever visit that website and not spend half of a day there!  It's seriously addicting!!  Pin, pin, pinning…  Anyhoo, I found this card sketch there and fell in love with it.  Not too busy and perfect for this image.  After I was done watercoloring the image, I wanted to make the balloon stand out, so I added some sparkle using my Wink of Stella glitter pen and then applied some Glossy Accents on top.  The photo doesn't do it justice but it looks great IRL. Okee dokee, that's it for me today!  I hope you hens have a FABULOUS Friday and a great weekend too!  See ya back in the hen house real soon!  {{{hen hugs}}}
