That's Mister Old Fart ... Happy Birthday

Hello friends! Today is my husband and my daughter's birthdays.   
Here's the card I made for the 'ol man in my life - LOL!
Digital image by Bugaboo Digis:  Gus Birthday - Old Fart

So really my DH is not even 50 yet but this image so cracked me up that I couldn't resist.
DH has a blue robe (just like this) and some brown slippers that he wears 
(fortunately NOT bunny slippers!).  Thankfully he doesn't smoke a pipe and 
sadly he doesn't have as much hair as Gus.  A lot less upkeep though -hahahaha!

Anyway...it made him laugh and he said he really likes it.  Hope you do too :o)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Just Us Girls - JUGS #237 Color Challenge

  1. Gus images are so fun, and this card looks great in bold colors. I like that you chose the colors of his own robe and slippers, a nice personal touch. As for hair I think you should be glad he doens't have Gus' hairdo, lol-
