older... dad

today i am showing a birthday card made for my father -in-law who has a birthday this week ~not had any time for blogging or crafting over the last week ~so lots to catch up on!!
followed the fab sketch on INSPIRATIONAL CARD SKETCHES and followed the challenges on TRULY SCRUMPTIOUS ~to make a "card with more than one fold" and CREATIVE INPIRATIONS to make "a card for a male"


once the card is opened .. the answer!!

then the inside ~hope this shows my two fold card!! very hard to show ~ but a bit of fun!!
used HOTP papers, murray and ethel stamps, quickutz balloons, nestabilities deckled recangles, ribbon and stickers from my stash.

Hi Vanessa - this is fantastic. Love the colours and papers you've used. These Murray & Ethel stamps are so humerous and cute. Like the way you've sort of put Murray in the cupboard/wardrobe.
Thanks for sharing this with us at TS.
