Dads birthday!

Hi everyone.

I managed to find some time to make my dad a birthday card and thought I'd do a quick post and share it with you.

I don't often use DL card blanks but this image was a little too long for a square (which is my favourite!). Image is changuito thankyou stamp. I masked out the thankyou that is in the middle of the flower head and used a HOTP birthday sentiment instead. Coloured with my whispers pens. CS is DCWV and paper is K & Co Hopskotch pad. White ribbon is dovecraft, patterned brads from my stash, and 'dad' was created from white CS using my olivia cuttlebug alphabet set.

It's my day off today so I'm going to spend most of today catching up with some of my uni coursework. But I'm taking a break this afternoon to go and pick up my engagement ring from the jewellers! It's had to be resized and I haven't been able to wear it properly yet so I am soooo excited to be picking it up!

Hope you are all well on this blustery day!

Big hugs, Vicky x
