Rootin Tootin Birthday card



Good Sunday evening!
My Dad has this very dear friend who has been hauling our manure away. In the beginning he was using it to spread for his garden and for his pastures to grow hay for his cows. The time came when he really didn't need anymore but has continued to haul our never ending supply of horse manure! :) With four horses who are stabled about 10 out of 24 hours there is always a growing mound!!

His birthday is tomorrow, a big one; he will be 80 years old! I made this to wish him a happy birthday but also to include a thank you for hauling our homemade fertilizer. Since I used one of my very favorite sets (Rootin Tootin Father's Day) from SCH I decided to share it with you! I just love playing with this set, it touches my Texan heart almost as much as a big bowl of pinto beans and cornbread! Yum!!

Hope you enjoyed looking! Blessings to each of you and hoping you have a wonderful week!
