I hope I live to 80

Tonight we celebrated Wayne's dads 80th Birthday.
Here is the card I made him.
I have trouble with masculine cards. I can't add all the pretty embellishments in them.
 Here is the dimension shot ;)
 Inside of the card.
 Here is the Birthday Boy.
This man means so much to me. He really is like a father to me.
He has been in my life since I was 16 yrs old. And welcomed me into this family. And treats me like his own daughter.
I love this man.
 Here is the youngest member of the family :)
Isn't he a sweetie. That isn't really a question as we know he is ;)
 Ashley is going camping (ol' style) with Tyler and his friends.
They were going to purchase a new tent. I told them we have one that they can use.
Ashley wasn't sure of the quality of our tent, so the decided to put it up in our basement to make sure it didn't have any holes.
It was only used a few times. But Wayne did inform us that it is about 15 yrs old.
Looks fine to me. Mind you I won't be the one sleeping in it if it rains, teehee.
P.S. Don't look at Ashley's pants, she just put these on for the tent assembly. If she sees this she will want me to take this photo off, lol.
On To My Day:
First thing I did was get my licence sticker for the jeep. It wasn't a problem, even though it was overdue.
Picked up a gift card for the Birthday Boy.
Picked up Kristy's boyfriend, Blake.
Hand delivered a bill.
Then came home and worked most of the day.

Hope you all had a wonderful creative day:)
Thank you all so much for the Birthday wishes for both me and Ashley :)
