Happy Birthday Dad

Tomorrow is my Dad's birthday so of course I wanted to make him a card. I used all Cornish Heritage Farms stamps for this, except the sentiment. The background is End Diamond and the lighthouse and sail boat are from Beacon of Hope, Scene it! line. I really enjoyed stamping a "scene", it's the first time I have and for certian people/occasions it just really works. I stamped the images onto Kraft from PTI and colored with my Prismas. The sentiment is from PTI also. Added a bit of piercing and called it good. I hope he likes it.

I am now carrying mini kits in the Paper Blooms shop. They are super cute if I do say so myself:) I am adding little handmade felt embellishments along with the blooms and some coordinating ribbon, buttons, stick pins etc. Please take a look! It's free shipping if you are in the U.S!

It's a bit late in coming but my dear husband and I are going out tonight to celebrate Mother's Day. He had to work last weekend so we never got to do anything special. My parents are going to watch my two littles and we are going out, alone, for the first time in 3 years!! I'm looking forward to it:) Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
