Eclipse Card

Happy  weekend everyone! Being retired usually means your weekends aren't much different than your week days. Our weekends tend to be busier than our week days but sometimes that varies. Tomorrow we have the twins all day. I am taking Valerie to get her hair cut. I'm hoping it's warm enough to take them to the park. It certainly wasn't today. Chilly and windy today.
My FIL is celebrating his 90th birthday next Saturday. His real birthday is March 18th, but the family is gathering together next weekend to celebrate this big milestone! So here's my card.

Dad has owned a Farmall A tractor for as long as I have known him. So I thought it was pretty neat to take a picture of the tractor and then do an eclipse card with his name. I only have one set of alphabet dies and they are all lower case so this looks a bit strange, but some people do spell their names with all lower case letters. The alphabet is Quinn's ABCs dies from Lawn Fawn. Here's another view of the eclipsed letters.

The numbers were die cut with MFT Pop-Up Numbers. The sentiment is from Hero Arts It's Your Day stamp set. The sentiment strip is heat embossed with red bling embossing powder. I used an embossing pen to hand write the "th" and emboss it also. The sentiment is die cut with MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags. The background paper is from my stash. I am entering these challenges:

I am headed for bed because I know the twins will wear me out tomorrow. Stay tuned for some before and after pictures of their hair cuts. Arthur definitely looks a lot different. Valerie is just really getting a trim but she should look different too. Hope you have a lovely weekend! Thanks for stopping by.
