Birthday Card for Dad

It seems ages since I posted anything or made anything for that matter, been a really busy couple of weeks getting my two daughter ready for university, Laura off for her final year and Rebecca for her first year but they've both finally gone so its very quiet (and tidy) at home with just one left.

Anyway its my Dad's birthday tomorrow so thought I'd better get cracking, I always find mens card difficult however here goes I think he'll like it.

The image is a digi stamp from Cuddly Buddly, coloured with Copics.   Papers are from Papermania Hampstead collection which I've had in my stash for ages but think the colours are just right for male cards.  DAD cut using sizzix dies and big shot.

I'm going to enter it in the following : - Anything Goes - Men Only - Lots of Layers

New Layouts

I'm not at work at the moment as not been feeling too well so the Doctor has given me a few days rest,  thought I would use the time to get ahead with my layouts for my Scrapbook group at Vanilla Crafts as I find crafting very theraputic.

I'd got some papers from the Kaisercraft Secret Bird Society collection and the clear stamp set that goes with it.

Here's the first layout completed :-

I've used the Mystery and Conceal papers and a sheet of brown bazzill cardstock.

Stamped images done on scraps of cream cardstock
Letter stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry

Photo's were taken last Christmas when we visited Bradgate Park in Leicestershire (not far from where we live) walking off all the Christmas goodies that we had consumed over the festive period.
The park was lovely with the snow on the ground but all the lovely colours of nature peeping through.

Second Layout completed :-
I've used the Shh and Disguise papers together with a sheet of blue and a sheet of rust bazzill cardstock
Stamped images done on scraps of  cardstock
Letter stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry
Photos again of Bradgate Park
I've based this layout on this weeks sketch from Sketches in Thyme

Seeing Double

The theme this week over at Less Is More is a one layer card -"seeing double" and here is my take on the theme

I've used the Kaisercraft Secret Bird Society stamp set for the main image with a sentiment from Hero Arts
Momento teardrop inkpads and a little bit of clear stickles

I look forward to reading your comments.
