Getting ahead

Well the change in the weather has certainly made me realise that it's not that long until christmas and I also have some birthdays before then so I thought I'd better get a few cards made in advance.. and use a few challenges for inspiration too.

My Dad will be 95 in December and his card was the first on my list to get done. I went for a CAS design and a LOTV image which I coloured with Promarkers. A few snippets of paper from Prima for the background, some gold peel-offs, Memory Box die-cut letters.... and job finished!

I shall enter this in the following challenges

I Love Promarkers challenge 'masculine'

Papertake Weekly challenge 'anything goes'

Pixie's Snippets Playground 'use snippets'

Crafty Sentiments Designs challenge 'anything goes'


  1. Brilliant card Andrea! Bet your Dad will love it - is he still crafting? And aren't LOTV images such fun to use - great design too!
