Happy Birthday Dad


Hi Guys.

I had posted this card before The Bloggergate Blip, but it's back in Drafts, so for the sake of the challenges I've entered, I am reposting. Sorry if you've seen it already. I expect it may get posted twice later!

I used the current sketch from Sketch Saturday and the current theme at Sweet Stampin is Childhood Memories, so I'm going to cheekily enter this there!

Cardstock: Stampin Up!
Papers: Hattie, Stella and Rose, MME
Image: Digistamp Boutique
Sentiment: Pooter generated
Colouring: SU! Inks and Old Faithful, status - pain in the a***
Tools: Nesties, paper piercer
Other: Brads (vintage) from stash

Hi Fluffy....Did you think I had left the country??
I have had a few pc probs and not always been able to comment for you or vicky for some reason. Glad you are ok, even if you are a bit rushed off your feet. Hope SC is being a good boy for you. The Doc will love this card is fab. That image is great for the dreaded man's card. Dx

Oh this is just a perfect Dad's card. I wish I'd seen this earlier in the week for inspiration for my own Dad's b'day card (you've met of course ;)). Sorry I haven't had too many moments to stop by just lately, but loving your talent as always. keeleyxxx

Nope, hadn't seen it because it's too long since I visited you :(!! Bloggergate, what a mess that was but luckily I hadn't posted anything either :D. I love the card you made for your Dad, I bet he did too and such gorgeous colouring and design, perfect embellies too.

Well, I hope you're well Faye, Sweet Cheeks and Stash Police too and have a great weekend, it's been a joy to catch up with you and I'm off further down now :) xxxx

I did see it before and I think I commented too but hey ho. It's perfect for the Doc whom I hope had a great birthday Faye. I have had house guests and have been a naughty commentator then blogger went down but I have thoroughly enjoyed catching up on your recent makes. Loved your sentiment card too! Great flowers - why do you call them tomatos? Hugs Lesley

Jo said...

Ooooh, no hunni, I hadn't seen this before blogger went down, but I sish I had, it's fabulous *claps*
Bet The Doc loved it too, hope he had a brilliant birthday :)

Well, considering how late I am (I apologize:-(...), I did not see it before the Bloggergate Blip, but I am glad I can see it now! I am sure your Dad loved his card, it's a fantastic card! I love the image, so perfect, with the legs coming out of the frame, your papers are gorgeous and the layout is brilliant! BIG hugs Delphine xx

So this is the post I left the fabulous intelligent comment on! I really love the card & colours. Did have to laugh about your childhood memories though, but I suspect my little cherub will have memories like this too in a few years lol! xxx
