Good evening


Made these cards today for my stepdad's birthday tomorrow. He is such a wonderful man and I am very lucky to have had him in my life for the past 16 years. He's everything a great dad should be and he certainly has been that to me. The first one is made using the rockin' George image which I purchased from Charmed cards & crafts after seeing the fabulous cards which my SBS sister Sammi makes with these images. Her fab work has been featured on the Dottie's World blog, if you haven't visited before now, go and check it out. You won't be disappointed. I really enjoyed colouring him and can't wait to have a go with some of the other images I bought.



The second one was made using the High Hopes stamp "Froggy Gift" which I got from Kelly in our SBS image swap a wee while ago. I have been desperate to use him for ages but have never gotten around to it until now. I think it is such a cute image and I really enjoyed making this card. I think I will have to buy this image as it could be used for lots of different occasions. This card is from Lewis to his papa.
