Looking Ahead with a Guy Card

I decided it would be fun to get away from coloring and back to some stamping today!  I got out several old stamps from my stash and had some fun designing a card for my dad.  Now, dad loves birds; so this stamp will be perfect for either birthday or Father's Day...not sure which yet!  I guess it depends on the other card I come up with!  ;)  Hopefully, we'll all be vaccinated and ready to visit by the time these holidays come to pass!  

Material list below and a short video on my button process is also available if you are interested in how I got that button to look that way.
