Morning peeps!!!

How many of you love making cards and then get that order ( from your dad...) and say, " Yes of course I can do that Dad" when he gives you your little list of needs for it ( which was... name: kipper. Likes:golf, spent a lot of time at sea and he is retiring from being a DHL truck driver...)
Well, beads of sweat formed on my top lip for around an hour ovwer this one...and then it just all plopped together onto a card and I was quite pleased with myself!!!

I think I remembered everything for it!! I made the sentiment myself in word and googled 'kipper' to get the little kipper picture on it. I did try writing the name kipper but the fish was way more fun so I chse him!!

Lots of distress inking on the background ( ...very theraputic when you are not exactly sure where you are going with the making of the card...!!) I masked the magnolia stamp up before distressing away!!
The big guy is coloured up and popped out with some silicone on top.

And here is inside the card.....

I just had to get the lorry in there somewhere!!!!
The pages on the right are actually 10 pages and I had to sew them in as Dad needed 100 people to be able to sign it!!!!! phew!!!!
