I have used a combination of papers for this card.  The holly patterned one is from Kaisercraft.  I added a deep red textured cardstock from DCWV layered onto some gold paper.  The image is from Digi Stamp Boutique and is coloured with copic markers G29, G21, R59, R46, YR23, Y28.  I added a pre-printed sentiment and a button from Teresa Collins.

Here is the sketch I followed:








Relax Dad

Two of my Dad's favourite past-times are golf and puzzles.  I always seem to make golf themed cards so I thought this time I would go with the puzzles particularly as my Dad sits in a chair similar to this one when he is working on his puzzles.

http://craftingforallseasons.blogspot.co.nz/2015/05/challenge-102-birthdays-with-four-of.html



I have used three papers from Trimgym for this card and matted them with purple cardstock.  The image is from Dr Digi and coloured with copic markers E00, Yr07, YR04, BG15, BG13, V17, V15.  I also added four yellow buttons.

Dream Cat

Is this kitty trying to fool the birds into thinking he is part of the tree - or is he sitting there dreaming he's a bird?  I'm going to give the kitty the benefit of the doubt and saying he is sitting there dreaming!  Hence the sentiment.
