Away for his birthday

Well, we are on countdown for our holiday - only 3 days and a few hours to go and we will be jetting off to Orlando, Florida. We are all exceptionally excited and the only thing marring the whole holiday is that we are away for my Dad's birthday. Although it's not a special one, I have never been away before on his birthday so in anticipation we are going for dinner on Friday night and I plan to take a cake with me as a surprise (but it won't be if he reads this!!!!)

Making cards for men is difficult, but making 3 different ones for the same man is even harder.

So to start I made a card from the kids - he is an avid Leeds United fan (well he can't be perfect all the time!!!!! - well he is actually) so

as he shares his passion with his eldest grandson we opted for a football card.

This card uses the Dovecraft masculine papers which I used as a background and border

The stamp is one of the sugar nellie stamps coloured with my prismas/sansador in the Leeds colours and decoupaged.

I hope he likes it.

The next project is to finish off the card from me and my hubby for him which I will upload later and then wait for photos from my mum to go in the card from her.

I know I love card making but it is getting silly when I have to do so many cards for the same person - especially when my "mojo" has gone on holiday
