Happy Hump Day to y'all! Love Wednesdays. Middle of the week and now the Dancing starts again tonight! Yeay! Only I get to play Teacher which is kinda nerve racking as there are 4 teachers in the group!!
I thought I would share my card which I made for my Daddy recently. It is fully of my favourite things, Artistic Outpost stamps, Snippets, ink and layers. I had to giggle half way through making it as I got the idea when I was in bed not being able to sleep, and half way through I realised I had all but CASed it from a card that was sent to me by my lovely Bloggie Friend Alison. I did email her and tell her and she was very nice about it telling me to "Case away". So here it is.....
I used my Old Grist Mill stamps stamping onto Snippets of white card and TH waxed paper. I just love the crinkled look - bit like my ironing!
I inked and stamped the background - would you believe the card was white? A little bit of sequin waste I found in the bottom of a drawer.
A Coffee pot and some string from my friend at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
Some lovely stringey lace which my wonderful friend gave me a while ago - I keep it for special occasions. Isn't this old sign just wonderful. I also stamped some leaves out in the wax paper and cardstock.
I have used some stamps from their other collections too. All made up into an easel card. My latest favourite style as you have far more space on there, though it makes it heavy to post!
I even decorated it a little inside to add more layers. The inks were a mixture of DI and AIs. My good ole Penny Black birthday stamp was in use again. I have lots of HB stamps but nearly always go back to this one.
Yes! My Dad loved it - especially the saying about Simplifying - at 82 it is about time he stopped hoarding stuff in his garage and maybe put a car in there! Tee Hee - only joking!
Thanks for calling by. I am entering this into the Artistic Outpost Referral for this month and the Playground.
