It is my Dad's 81st Birthday soon and I made this for him. I used  Tim Holtz Blueprint and Gears embossing folders. I have had this a while and never used it ,,, about time !! :-)


I love Tim's Blueprint range of stamps, I think they are particularly fab for manly cards. Don't look too closely but I had me wonky glasses on and the game piece is glued on a bit off centre. It is well and truly stuck in place with glossy accents so I can't 'udge it over :-)

I really like how this turned out and I hope my Dad does too ,,,, Mum's birthday is on the same day too !! 


Thanks for looking, Please hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge to see what our fab GD, Elena, and the DT have made ,,, AWESOME stuff :-)

ALSO,
Happy Birthday Jo ,,, 21 ( again) today !! Hope you're having a fabulous day :-) XOXO
