Happy Birthday

Good morning to you all,

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. It was nice to spend some time at home yesterday, as I had the afternoon off in lieu of some First Aid training that I did last Friday. So what better way to enjoy it than in my craft room, although the torrential rain pounding down on my conservatory roof was deafening!!

Well, I don't know about you, but January is a time for celebration again here - not only was my own challenge blog one year old last week, but my best crafty friend is also celebrating the first birthday of her male themed challenge blog -

So, well done Caz - who would have thought it after all our deliberations and frustrations getting them both up and running. Here's to another great year in 2015 with lots more great themes and entries.

So, as it's also my Dad's birthday today - what better reason for making a card! Here's what I made for him, which is also my DT inspiration for the new 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY' challenge which starts today ...

As most of you know, I am addicted to all things LOTV, so out came my papers and stamps once again.  This one is an 8x8" scalloped card blank, covered with papers from the 'Father Knows Best' paper pad. The focal image is LOTV 'Cheers Bear' and is stamped in Vintage Sepia ink and coloured with my trusty Promarkers. A also added a stamped greeting, some co-ordinating checked ribbon, some die-cut stars (which I ran though my dotty embossing folder), a couple of brads and some dinky little lettering which I stamped on some scraps of card to spell the word 'Dad'.

I hope you can come and celebrate with us over at the blog - we would love to see you there.

Hugz, Jan xx
