Dad's The Word........

Helloooooo all my lovelies out there how are you all? I'm just popping on to show you a card I've made.....my goodness I've missed my crafting. I am on way to catch up with you all, last night there was a bum shape in the sofa cus I sat here that long trying to catch up....it takes forever but I will be there...I will soldier on......onward upwards & all that lol.
Right I'm shushing now & showing a card I've done with my new rubber off hubby last week.
This is a new release from LOTV called 'Dad's The Word' I dont have that many male stamps so when these were I saw these I loved 'em.


The keyring style thingy is Tim Holtz off my hubby & the ribbon,button & scrolly thing are from my stash.
I punched out 'Happy Birthday' using my MS punch & also punch the lattice one at the bottom but cut off the scallops to make it more erm.....manly (she says in a deep voice....now choking....)

The image was stamped onto Bristol Board & has been coloured with Prisma pencils & blended with sansador.


Last piccy my camera has missed me & just wouldnt stop clicking, I had to smack it lol. Papers are from Bearly Mine.  
Well thats it from me for now I'm off to lie down for a bit cus.....well I've pushed myself a wee bit too much today as we've been having a sort out of Natalie's bedroom......yeah hubby told me off too. So he has gone pick up Jake from his work experience & I'm having a lie down for 5.
Thank you sooooo much for stopping by I really do appreciate it & I will be popping by to see you all later. mmwah

What a great card. I too don't have a lot of DUDE themed stamps. LOL. I really love the charm you included. I'm a big Tim Holtz fan. I want to be his friend. :-)

Mona E said...

Hey sweetie! So happy that you are feeling better. I have missed you. I totally understand that you didn`t want to get hospitalized. It is sooooooo boring! lol. Love your new card and stamp. My 3year old does too. She is sitting in my lap now, so it`s a bit difficult to write, lol. She said: mommy that is nice. I like it.
We are having a day home from the daycare just enjoying ourselves. It`s so nice to get some cuddling from her as she totally is daddy`s girl, lol. But as long as he is not around i get some love, hahaha. Hope you have a nice day and don`t overdo things. Big hug from Mona
