"Card for Dad"

Hello Blog friends, regular followers and anyone who has popped in to see what I get up to.  Thank you for taking time to do that, I  love having you here.  A few people who call in do not have an active Blog so I cant get back to them.  However I really appreciate that you visited.
With the upset of my Computer it put me right off my Crafty Stride.   
I got all the house jobs up to date yesterday, even the washing was dried, ironed and put away by mid afternoon.   Apart from the "daily" chores I should have time to play today.
The boys had a sleepover Saturday night when they made a card for their Dad`s birthday which is tomorrow.  They were to make a Gift Bag to hold the Chocolate Bars they bought for him, they ran out of time.  No doubt they will be back sometime today to do that.
Here is their card all done by themselves, Robert did all the putting together.  I printed out the letters which Thomas cut out.  I find watching Thomas rather funny he is left handed, looks so awkward but manages to get there in the end.

Base card approx 6 x 8
Brown card from the "bit box"
Papers from a Magazine
Letters printed from a Crafters Companion CD
Computer generated greeting done by Thomas
Red Peel off 

That`s it folks
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time

  14. Great card for a Dad!! Elegant and masculine!!!

  15. They clearly have your artistic flair Patricia, it's a fab card! Our youngest is left handed and we found it so hard when he was learning to write. He is 20 now and still curses when he's writing as it's impossible to avoid smudges unless he uses pencil!! xx

  16. Wow what a special card for Dad and the cutting out is amazing xx the talent is obviously in the genes xx GailT xx

  17. The apple hasn't fallen far from the tree! A very elegant card there - no doubt inspired by you. Sending you hugs. Jenny x

  18. Evening Patricia wow the boys have made a wonderful card. They have done really well. Sorry not been around much but the the signal here on the caravan site is rubbish. I'm now sat in the bathroom that's only place where I get a signal. Lol.

  22. Looks like the talent has gone on in another generation. This is a swell card & for 2 young boys to make, awesome. Our DD is a lefty so I can understand the awkwardness with scissors, pens, etc. Good for him that he's willing to spend the time to create & tell both of them, they did a wonderful card. Their Dad will love it since it was made especially for him. TFS & Hugs

  23. Beautiful and stylish male card Patricia, the word itself says it all! Hugs Ira xox
