Grandpa card

I was asked recently to make something for a Grandpa, not too fussy, and when I asked about what he likes to do the answer was 'not a lot!' Lol :-). So I decided this cute little guy would fit the bill!

The striped background is an offcuts of a 12x12 sheet, and the border at the bottom was rescued from another project that was destined for the bin! He is stamped on a snippet of watercolour card and painted with distress Inks.

It's been a bit gloomy here lately, but today I see (drum roll please) SUNSHINE!! Ta da! May have to leave the craft projects & get out there. Maybe not quite dancing around the garden cos its still pretty soggy, but a lovely walk would be nice :-)

As I used lots of snippets for this one I'm linking to Pixies Snippets Playground - haven't visited for a while cos crafting has not been happening at the Willis house. Must try harder!

Have a lovely weekend everyone, & thanks for stopping by

  4. Great card, Debs, and he looks so happy. Thank you for your lovely comment on my envelope. xx Maggie

  5. Doesn't he look happy to be doing a whole lot of nothing. Actually, he looks like DH since he retired. I swear he was watched every episode of Law and Order reruns...every episode ever made!
    Great masculine feel even for a guy doing nothing! lol


I love reading your comments, so fire away!
