Happy Birthday Dad!

Helloo from a very cold Yorkshire tonight! Brrrrr.....

We had quite a bit of snow here yesterday, enough to close our school at lunchtime so the staff and children could get home safely - which gave me some extra crafty time (can't complain at that!)

Thought I would show you the card I made for my Dad's birthday at the weekend.  I always seem to struggle with cards for men, but here's what I made ...

I love this little 'Fizzy Moon' image and it was just perfect for my Dad! I coloured the bear with my Promarkers and then paper pieced the chair, stool and cushion with scraps of blue paper and then stamped on newspaper to paper piece the book (to make it look as if he fell asleep reading the newspaper!)

The side panel has been run through an embossing folder, then I added some distress ink to enhance the numbers.  I used a stashbox stamp for the greeting which is embossed with black powder.

Hope you like it.  See you soon,
Hugz, Jan xx
