Just Resting My Eyes

Well here's my second card of the day and this time it's a birthday card I made for my dad on his 92nd birthday last week. He doesn't really appreciate cards so they only manage a couple of hours on the shelf (if they even get there) and then they are straight in the bin! Anyways this is the card I made using  a stamp from Ladybug Crafts Ink called 'I'm Not Asleep Wrinkley' which was so apt, because for as long as I can remember Dad has never 'been asleep' but 'only resting his eyes' insisting he heard every word we said about him!!
I coloured the image with Promarkers and then layered it onto a piece of brown card and then straight onto a hammered effect base card. The sentiment was made on the computer. So a very quick make card and yes it did end up in the bin the next day!!

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Passion For Promarkers challenge 'Include the Word Happy in the Sentiment'
I Love Promarkers challenge 'One For The Boys,
Willow Sketchie challenge 'Quick makes or Sketch' (I chose the quick make)

Thanks for dropping by today and I hope you liked my creations xx
