Happy Birthday Daddykins!!

Morning All!

And a Happy Saturday to you all  :o)  I hope you've had good weeks?  Mine has been another hectic one (again!), hence no cards posted this week  :o(  I've been busy making them though honest, lol!  Yesterday was my Dad's birthday and today I'm sharing the card I made him using this week's fabby sketch at Sketch Saturday (thanks Jo, you rock!!).  We went out last night for a birthday curry, yummmmmm it was loooooverly!!  Mum bought Dad a little cake and the waiter put a massive sparkler in it and dimmed the lights and sang Happy Birthday, not too embarrassing for your 61st birthday ay.....well it has to be done doesn't it lol!!  :o))



We had a fab night!  Here's my card...



A close up of Wild Rose Studios 'Grandad Relaxing'.  I tried to make it look like he's sitting in his front room (not that my Mum and Dad's front room is green mind you!) so I added a little piccie of me and Dad on the 'wall'.  It was taken when we had a family holiday to Paris!...



Inside of card...



Oops, just realised I didn't doodle the inside of the card, doh!


And a side view...



Here's this weeks fabby sketch...



And this week we're sponsored by our regular sponsor...
