My Dad's birthday card!

Hello everyone! Sorry I've not posted much recently (or been on other people's blogs) but I have a friend visiting this week, after my family over Easter and so we've been out enjoying ourselves!!! Off to pick my daughter up from school in a minute and take our dog and the girls to the beach - just thought I'd stop by with a quick post and to show you the card I made for my Dad's birthday yesterday.

Firstly, a big 'thank you' to Sarpreet and Dianne who have given me blog awards. Much appreciated ladies and I'm very sorry I haven't done anything with them yet!!

So, on to the card....

This was using the 'Rory' stamp from Sugar Nellie, coloured with twinkling h2o's. Papers from the CCSR Big One paper pack. I set eyelets around the image with my crop-a-dile and then threaded through some fibres (Grafix Create it! craft ribbon - this was meant to look a bit like a lion's mane, although my husband looked at me like I was a bit mad when I told him that!!!). The sentiment was cut from the CCSR papers again, bordered with some spotty papers cut from the stripey page and then I added some more of the fibres.

Thanks for looking - off to school now!!
