Man's Card...

This will be a quick post from me this evening as I need to go and rest my achy bones - struggling as well to keep my eyes open as I have to take medication in the evening to help me relax - so I am not waking up every few minutes with my back! Driving me mad is not even in it...
I am sharing this evening a card that I made for my dad for his birthday, I have used a digi image that I found at the crafty pad that suited what I wanted to make for my dad - to a tee.
One of the things that my dad loves is reading and this stack of books made me think of him - there are always new books to look at when we visit... He also buys a Sunday paper that he keeps through the week to read different sections from - he has done that for many years! So the card that I made for my dad is coloured using my SU ink pads and a blender pen and I have just built the colour up, making sure the image was dry before adding more.
I have also used SU card stock and decorated the panels with the sanded background I love the way that this stamp adds a look of texture to the project that you are making! I have inked the edge of the image panel and then mounted this on chocolate chip card and then again on crumb cake... I have then added this to a larger piece of chocolate chip and one of night of navy, I have added 3 card candy to decorate!
I hope you like my card and thank you for visiting my blog... I love reading your comment - Debbi x
