My grandfather's birthday card...

This is a quick and simple card I did for my grandfather's birthday.  He is 84 years old.  He is an electrician and he STILL works!  He owns his own business, and he still climbs ladders at 84!!!

I googled "electrician cartoon" and then printed two out.  He is a big jokester, so I know he will appreciate these.

Front: (Sentiment says "What makes you think this room wasn't wired properly?")

Inside: (Sentiment says "Tomb of the unknown electrician")

Supplies: Computer printed McHumor Cartoons and sentiment, DCWV Fall Stack, buttons from stash,

Challenges:
1. Stamptacular Sunday - sketch
2. Cards for men - birthday
3. Treehouse Stamps - clean and simple
4. Pile it on - pastels
5. Crazy 4 Challenges - masculine
