Happy Birthday Dad S

Yesterday was my father-in-laws birthday, so off to the craft room I go.... there would have been questions asked if the cards had not been hand made ;)
I haven't managed to get out there very often lately as I've been distracted by beading, patchwork and knitting, something I must put right!

This is the card I made for the kids to give to Grandad, he likes a beer or two, not that he would admit to it ;) so thought this image very apt....

and this is the card from Barry and I. One of his favourite pastimes is spending time on the water, or even in the water (a little slip earlier in the year!)

Like most crafters I struggle with cards for males, as I like to add the odd flower or two, some ribbon and a bit of bling but it never seems appropriate on cards for men.

Am off to sort out some cards for hubby to take into work, then a bit of sewing before bed.

Hope to catch up soon.

I've always loved that stamp set - is it summer by the sea? Sadly it's been retired and I no longer have it! Love Dad S's card. 2 log weekends back to back - I'm finding it hard to get back to "work"!
