Dad's birthday

Today is my Dad's birthday. I've made a couple of cards, one sent from me & hubby, the other from Jake.
I wanted to use the same paper pad for both cards. I used the now retired Stella & Rose 'Hattie' from My Mind's Eye.

This first one's image uses LOTV's Put Your Feet Up...

I coloured it with promarkers, layered it onto grey cardstock, then set an eyelet for the frayed ribbon trim.
My sentiment is by inkadinkado, and DAD was cut using die-namics dies.
The collection of stars are from a Marianne Creatables die (Punch Die - Stars).

I'm entering this card at:
Sketch Saturday - sketch #402
DigiDesign Challenge - 2 or more dies
Crafts Galore Encore - make a card in March

This next card uses Snoozing Ralph image and sentiment by DigiStamp Boutique..

Again, coloured with promarkers.
'Grandad' was cut with a die by Crafts Too. I don't have grandad, so I cut Grandson twice and pieced Grand from the first, and then the a & d from the other die-cut.

I'm entering this card at:
DigiStamp Boutique - March 2016 customer competition

It's my son in law's birthday tomorrow, so i'll be back then with a pic of his card.
Have a fab day, won'cha?  ;) xx
