Take It Easy Dad

Evening all.  I am trying to get hubby's birthday cards done for Sunday.  Is a bit of a rush trying to fit making his cards in but I could not bring myself to go out and buy his birthday cards.
Have done another one tonight which is for my youngest daughter to give to her Dad.  She is 20 (makes me feel old) and is in Manchester attending uni there but she is still Daddy's little girl.
Had to keep it fairly simple as hubby is not into lots of fancy frills, lol.  The image is from Digi Stamp Boutique (I was lucky enough to win some free images recently).  I coloured him with promarkers and matted onto some blue gingham paper and kraft card.  All the papers used were a paper pack from Wild Rose Studio.  I used a fineliner pen to add some doodles around the edges.  Added some brown ribbon and peel off letters at the bottom.  The sentiment is from Little Claires and I sprayed it with some spray and sparkle to give it a bit of shine.
I am entering this into the Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge.

Thanks for looking.  Now to tackle the card from my eldest daughter and the one from me.  If anyone has any ideas for male cards that they would be willing to share I would be grateful.  I do find male cards a definite challenge.

Oh it's so hard to make a card for a man who Does Not Do Cute and Fancy! I'm in exactly the same boat as you!

This card is such fun, the image is great and your papers look so good. I love the sentiment strip, too!

love Mags B x
