Celebrating 100!

Our neighbor recently celebrated his 100th birthday. Yes 100! He is the longest residing resident in our neighborhood and oldest neighbor too. When the neighborhood first began he was the oldest neighbor then, in 1964, and I was the youngest, being the first birth in the neighborhood. While I would graduate high school, and move on, eventually I did come back, as you, a regular follower, might know. 

His daughters were kind enough to invite a few select neighbors to celebrate the occasion. And of course, I had to make a handmade card for him. I decided a birthday such as this required something extra special. 

I chose to do a shaker card with gold and silver because he deserves all the glitz. I used our large letters framelits, our glitter that is in the current Occasions catalog and I cannot remember where I got the greeting that is stamped underneath the shaker card part. The inside of the card is from the Number of Years stamp set. 

His wife only passed away about 4 years ago. His wit and memory remain sharp as ever. 

It was an honor to celebrate this bright man who spent most of his working life owning a hearing aide company in Hopkins MN.
