My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

3 August 2011

It's Your Birthday

Morning all - firstly I would like to welcome my new followers - thank you for joining me and I hope you enjoy what you see on your visits here.  Well it's another hot one today isn't it ....... have a feeling I won't be venturing out much today, so may have to go and play in my craft room which is nice and cool.

Today's card is for my Dad's Birthday  which is on Sunday - he's going to be 79 and I always find it difficult to make suitable cards when they get to that age as they have had so many and also very difficult to buy for too!  So I am hoping he will like this one!

Card Ingredients:

Digidoodles Lighthouse Digi Stamp
DCWV Papers
Bazzil Basics Cardstock
Computer Generated Greeting & Background
Button & String from Stash

Now I really would appreciate your honest comments on this card as I am still a little unsure about it.

I am entering this card in to the following challenges:

Card and a Half 3 Sketch
  Divas By Design 7 Summer
  Delightful Summer
Papertake Weekly Anything Goes

Hope you all have a fab day whatever your are up to.

  13. I love this Claire, it reminds me of a visit to Tenby a few years ago, we went out to an island with a monastry and it had a lighthouse and a house at the side, your Dad will love it

  14. Hi Claire I'm sure your Dad will love it! I was the same for my Dad's Birthday not knowing what to make as he was 70 on Monday.. I really like the DP's you've used..

  15. Wow this is such a beautiful card Claire and im sure your Dad will absolutely love it. Know what you mean my Dad is 78 and i struggle so much with his. He doesn't give me a whole lot of enthusiasm as a few days after his Birthday he bloody well offers it back to see if i want to recycle it for someone else!!! old bugger!. Bet your Dad isn't like that Claire. Big hugs Clare xxx

  19. This is just a beautiful card for your dad Claire :) He will love it. But they do get difficult to make for - I made my dad a card a couple of years ago when all the egyptian stuff was in fashion and I got told off for making him a coffin card!! :D lol.
