Cute Card Thursday - Family Affair

Haven't managed to join in CCT for a while now, but have a day in and thought I should catch up with some challenges and card making - especially as the weather is a bit grim!

Challenge 53 - "Family Affair"
A nice easy one for this week!! We want you to make a card for a member of your family. As simple as that. Could be mum, dad, husband, son, sister - anyone!!

Mmmmm who should I make a card for, Mum's birthday is on Tuesday, but that card is on its way to New Zealand at the moment, haven't got any family birthdays until May now, and that is far too organised for me! Settled on making a card for my FIL whose birthday is at the beginning of May and decided to use some of my new SU! goodies that arrived last week and been crying out for me to play with them!
I decided to make a Z fold card, cutting A4 cardstock in half lengthways. I thought I would use the truck image from the Loads of Love set and my new Washington Apple DSP which are available on the new mini catalogue from 1st April. The image was watercoloured with co-ordinating inks. I think it needs something in the top left corner, but not sure what so will leave it for the time being. DOH just realised that I should put Dad on there, am off to do that now, will put new pic up later.
All I have to do now is put it somewhere safe and not forget about it LOL, perhaps I should make a card keeper!

Stamp Sets - Loads of Love, Loads of Love Accessories & Polka Dot background
DSP - Washington Apple
CS - Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie & So Saffron
Inks - Versamark, Black, Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie & So Saffron
Accessories - Scalloped Oval & Large Oval punches
All from Stampin' Up!

If you would like to get your hands on some of the new stash from the Mini Catalogue please contact me to order. I look forward to hearing from you soon....
