A card for Dad

Hi there! 

Just wanted to share this card that I made for Dad for Father's Day this Sunday. 

Pretty simple, hey?

(I'd prefer something else on that tag on the yellow, but sometimes you just have to call things done)

The background papers are October Afternoon's Seaside collection. 

The red dotty one is from OA's Modern Homemaker. 

And the yellow grid is from OA's Boarding Pass collection. 

My October Arvo stuff is never far away, so I used bits from all the collections to make them work the way I wanted to. The alphas are OA too. No surprise. 

The tag is one of Papertrey Ink's dies. Kinda looks like a bauble. 

I didn't make this card blind. I find that hard to do sometimes. You know, just go and make a card because you need one? All the pulling out of the stuff, coming up with an idea, finding the time or motivation in the beginning etc etc. 

I made this card at my scrapping cabinet actually. I never do that, but I've been making 4 x 6 journalling cards/ filler cards to have in my stash for when I scrap next (I use divided page protectors), so I turned one of those cards into an actual card. 

Kinda made the process pretty easy and I ended up making one for Andrew's dad and then five boy birthday cards for our nephews too. 

I'm not really one of those card makers who has a lot of cards on her stash even though she'd like to. I tend do to things in bunches and this whole recent card making thing for the fellas just proves it. 

When the inspiration's there, I just go with it. I'm now sorted for boy birthday cards until May next year, can you believe that? Me either...it rocks. 

I'll post the cards soon, you know I will.
