Wow, it's been a while since I've updated this blog. Despite being mega busy, I couldn't keep away from the hoard of supplies I have and keep collecting...Crate Paper has come out with some new collections and I can't wait to get them! Anyway, I have been able to make at least four cards since my last post and they've all been fun to make :) I wish I could make cards all the time! 

My dad turned 70 recently so I made him this card. He's an Elvis fan, so I incorporated some Elvis into it :) I think one of the reasons I love card making so much is getting to play with beautiful papers and accessories. In this card I went sticker mad ;) 

With stickers you can easily whip up a card, although the design took me ages as usual. I used October Afternoon's 'Modern Homemaker' collection for these vintage/50s/60s type images and stamped a Stampin' Up 'Happy Birthday' sentiment on the newspaper as well as using American Crafts thickers chipboard letters for 'dad'.

I think I'll use stickers more often :)

I'm submitting this to the CAS-ual Fridays: CFC17 Challenge.

Thanks for visiting and I'll catcha soon! :)
