At my age...........

Hello......remember me? I'm finally back after an interesting few weeks of busy summer vacation with a fair dose of sickness thrown in. Thankfully I'm now back on track health wise and the school holidays are drawing to a close, which means my blog can now get a little of the TLC it deserves.

I thought I'd start by catching up with a few things I did manage to craft over the last few weeks, firstly a card I made for my Dad's Birthday (back in July!). I've had this image from Bugaboo Digi Stamps for quite a while, just waiting for the appropriate male in his....shall we say 'Senior' years (see how polite I was!), so sorry Dad, but you drew the short straw!




I'm pleased to say this looks nothing like my Dad......well maybe the orange 'Speedo's' (ha!)

Colouring for this one was using Copic's, and papers are from the Echo Park 'Splash' 6"x6" pad.

I will hopefully be back a little later this week with something else to show you.....maybe a Scrapbook LO........we'll see.

Have a great day and......Oh....... it's good to be back!

Hi Jayne, good to see you back - I've missed you! I kept popping by just to check that it wasn't blogger playing up and not updating!

Fab card; love the image and brilliant sentiment. Obviously your dad has a great sense of humour! xx

Oh Jayne! How good it is to have you back! Hum...several of the blogs I go to, have featured "senior" cards...I seem to identify with that these days :) You have done a great job once again. Thanks, Dee

I absolutely Love this card! That image and the saying you put with it are great. Thanks for playing along at Paper Playtime.

Stay well, and enjoy having the house to yourself again.
I love the bugaboo images but I have to say I'm glad that your dad doesn't really look like that. I resemble Stella, she's a lot skinnier but I think she lurks inside me.
Thanks for sharing that orange speedo card with us, it'll keep me off the beach for awhile.
I hope to see you again at SFTW.
