Dad’s Birthday

We have had another really hot day 27 degrees plus with lots of humidity. The cool rain is now falling and you can hear the distant thunder.


I am sure there will be another crazy storm tonight – it is almost like we are in the tropics!


Today has been my Dad’s birthday and I made two cards for him.  One from Charlize (my daughter) and I and the other for Mum to give him.


So I thought I would share the cards with you.


I have used the retired Motorcycle stamp as my Dad loves his Motor Bike and when I saw this stamp I immediately thought of him.


The first card is a classic Black and White combination with a touch of Real Red – red makes you go faster, didn’t you know :)










Stamp set: Motorcycle, Happiest Birthday Wishes

Card: Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Stazon, Basic Black

Accessories:  1/4” (6.4 mm) Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon,  Basic Rhinestones, SNAIL Adhesive










My second card uses Basic Black and Very Vanilla and I have used the a sample  from the lovely Mocha Morning Speciality Paper.  On this paper the flowers and swirls have black flocking which looks great and feels so soft.


I stamped the ‘just for you’ in Soft Suede and the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments set. 





Stamp set: Motorcycle, Teeny Tiny Sentiments

Card: Basic Black, Very Vanilla
Ink: Stazon, Soft Suede

Accessories:  Mocha Morning Speciality DSP, Corner Punch, Retired Frame, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive








Dad loved both cards and he has had a great day. 


He went with Mum and had coffee this morning, spent time with his sisters for lunch and then after dinner we had chocolate cake - because you are never to old for birthday cake and candles!


Take care and have fun creating !
