Big, Bad, Dad!

Big Bad DAD!

It is my DH's birthday this week so I have been busy making his cards while he is at work, then hiding the evidence again when he is home!  This is his card from our two boys...

This fantastic stamp and sentiment set is from Tiddly Inks, isn't he the coolest Dad you ever saw.  I even made a quick rummage with the kids in the garage for some shiny nuts and washers!

Material Used; Digi stamps from Tiddly Inks, Copic Ciao's, SU Kraft, Basic Black and Riding Hood Red card stocks, DP 'Be A Man'  and Rub-Ons from Creative Imaginations, nut and washers from the garage.
