These are cards that I made for my Dad from hubby & me and from the boys. My dear Dad is in hospital in Stoke-On-Trent and having a miserable time of it. We arranged a visit out of hospital to my brother's house close by, bundled him up warmly and drove him away. He cheered up no end due to the fresh air and change of scenery (he's been in hospital for almost a month now) and it did him the world of good to spend his special day with his family around him instead of 2 at a time! God willing he may come home next week. Anyway onto the cards. The shed was from me & hubby. I used a script paper with fatherly words on it and some cartoon sky paper from DCWV. I cut out the shed and paper pieced it, adding grass, flowers , a fence and a shiny watering can. I have had those gardening implement embellies for ages and this card was an ideal opportunity to use them
The other card was from the boys. I cut out the beach-chair and umbrella, mounted them onto a base of cloud paper and hand-made paper sand, and added 'GRANDAD' with dome stickers. I wanted to fill the space at the top of the card so I inserted two eyelets threaded with yellow raffia and added a shell charm with a jump-ring.
