Guess who's going to be 80 on Wednesday???

Why, it's my brother-in-law John and we had a surprise birthday get together for him this afternoon!  For his card, I decided to use a different card format and I'm not sure what it is called........but here it is!

Close-up view of my "Gone Fishing" print and cut image!

The little "Gone Fishing" image is one that I found online and turned it into an image that you first print and then you cut with a digital's only a little over an 1 1/4 wide!  I used my Silhouette Cameo which has an optical eye, so it makes "print and cut" VERY easy!!!  I used my Pazzles Inspiration Studio Pro software to design the "Happy 80th Birthday John" and then used my Pazzles Inspiration Cutter to do all of the cutting with the exception of the "Gone Fishing"  print and cut sign.  I also have to confess that I did something that I rarely do...............I used some store bought birthday stickers that I had on hand!!!

Thanks for stopping by and please come back soon!
