#1 Dad

It's my Dad's birthday tomorrow and although I've had plenty of notice (it falls on the same day each year), I'd still managed to forget to make a card!  However, I bought a huge (3,000) amount of digi's in Dustin Pikes recent Blogversary sale and I came across this image within the files so I decided to use it.

I've used my brand new circle Nesties to cut the shape (no more wonky circles for me now!) and I've used the fab Echo Park Mr Campy digi paper pack for the papers. The sentiment is a magazine freebie from ages ago from Ladybug Crafts Ink.  Image coloured with Promarkers.

Just have to remember to take the card with me now when we go over to see them tomorrow!  Won't be the first time I've left something at home and had to post it!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
Pikes Playground:  Great Outdoors
Card Positioning Systems:  Sketch Followed
My Mums Craft Shop:  The Great Outdoors
Ladybug Crafts Ink:  Birthday

  • Image:  Dustin Pike, coloured with Promarkers
