I don't have a card for any challenges today, shock horror lol. I can't remember the last time I made a card that wasn't for a challenge. Although I have made them for birthdays etc, I have also tied them in with a challenge. But today my card is just for Daddy birthday, well not my Daddy's birthday but my kids Daddy.
I have been thinking for weeks what I could do for his card. I really struggle with men's cards at the best of times but Barry doesn't like anything in particular and is very critical of my cards sometimes (although that's great in a way because it actually helps my cardmaking), so I have had a real hard time thinking what I could do, then today it just came to me. What does he love more than anything? ......his kiddies, so thats exactly what I put on his card. Well not actually my children because that would be a bit hard lol, but photo's of them.
My base card is "denim" shimmer cardstock and you can't really see properly in this photo but I have stamped stars all over it with the same stamp I used for the blue and red embossed stars. This was a freebie stamp in craft stamper magazine this week and I thought it would be perfect as Barry always calls the kids his little stars.
The frames are mulberry ones but I have no idea where they came from and the paper behind the photos is from Chatterbox.
I cut out an extra red star and put it on the middle star with foam pads for some dimention.
I think I will put the letters DAD on the stars but need to find some first, and wanted to get it on here just now so I can go hide it. I know he will never see it on here because he never goes on my blog.
I'm off to do some blog hopping now ..........
