Birthday Dad

It will be my Dad's birthday on Tuesday so this morning I've been busy making him a birthday card, unfortunatly the stamp is non SU as my dad likes darts and Stampin up do not as yet do that kind of stamp.  So here is the efforts of my labour;

I used the ever handy colour coach to find out what matched up with crumb cake and as you can see it was Cajun craze, I've used the oval, scalloped oval and the 1 and 3/4 circle punches, and added some matching buttons from the regal's selection.  I also brought him a pressie and because I'm very bad at wrapping even the most simple of objects I did this,

Yup just popped a matching belly band round it lol. This stamp is a stampin up stamp and is from the For My Family set.

Here they are both together, we've also brought him some of his favourite tipple, Gordon's Gin lol Hopefully he'll like that.

I'll be entering this into the Simply Stamping Challenge Blog, have you seen it?  Why not pop over and join in the fun?
Bye for now

Happy Crafting
