Back again...

... I've taken a little advantage of being home today and made this:

trying to get ahead of the game (again!!!) - this is for the boys grandad, who celebrates a big birthday (80) not until  the summer, but what can you do when inspiration strikes (lol) - in my case seize it with both hands!!

Okey doke, the image is a precut & coloured LOTV that I have distressed.  The papers are my bargalicious Amy Tangerine  papers £2.99 from TKMaxx  (I got three packs and wish I'd got more) - again distressed.  The star has been manually die cut and the zigzag border electronically die cut (ooh get me!!) with a sentiment from my stash - that was a birthday gift last year from the lovely Sarah.

I would like to enter this into:

Cupcake Craft Challenges- all at sea
Kaboodle doodles - Brown/tan
Crafty sentiments - things beginning with B (Brown paper & star and zigzag), Blue (water), Boy, Brown distressed ink, Boat)

Enjoy the rest of your night and thank you for looking

  3. A fabulous card Ali, and the birthday 'boy' will love it! 80 is certainly a milestone to be celebrated. My dad will be 85 in June and the week before his birthday will be my Mum and Dads diamond anniversary! (which makes me feel very old!)

    Can't beat getting ahead and being organised!
    Big hugs
