Happy Birthday Dad!!!!!!!

Today it is Dad's birthday and this is the little card I made for him.  The image is by Penny Black (no surprises there then!!!!) and is a Valentines stamp but I cut off the little trail of hearts that are attached to the back of the plane.

The papers used are Echo Park and the birthday sentiment is by Personal Impressions.  The card is a tri-fold aperture one that I pinched from my cross stitch box - I put the cloud paper inside the card and then suspended the flying hedgie by a strip of acetate so that he looks like he is flying.  I didn't cut the hole very well in the polka dot patterned paper so I hid that with a scalloped circle aperture cut with nestabilities.

This card fits perfectly with last week's 52 card challenge which was to use an aperture and I am also using it for this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge which is a Case-It challenge.  I have taken my inspiration from the lovely cloud paper that Debby has used for her card and the flying Penny Black image.

And this horrible scene greeted me yesterday morning -

So I was full of the grumps all day as I couldn't get to my monthly crop!!


  1. Sorry you didnt make it to your crop. Love the card and hope you dad has a great birthday :)

  2. A great card Karen, I hope your Dad had a lovely birthday. I was sorry to hear you had to miss your crop although I can sympathize with you as lots of snow spoiled my day too! I had tickets to go to the Creative Stitches & Hobby Craft show with my Daughter, but because of the weather we had to give it a miss :(
    Take care and stay safe especially in this awful weather, luv Karen xx
