For my Dad....

Back again :-) I've still not warmed up so I'm going to make this a quick post then I'll go and put the heating on (I'm allowed now, it's November!)
This card is for my lovely Dad whose birthday is this weekend. Happy birthday, Dad!
The gooooorgeous LOTV image is from a recent win from Suzanne and I've coloured it with my promarkers. The papers I won from Debs so I'm afraid I don't know who makes them. The "Dad" stamp is from papermania and I've cut it out with my nesties. The swirl is my latest buy - soooo pleased with this! It's a sizzix swirl and they've been out of stock every time I've tried to get it before so I was really chuffed when it was in (I just had to buy it even though I'm supposed to be saving my pennies for the craft show at the NEC on Thursday - yeah!!!). It's one of three in the pack so the others will get an outing soon :-) Then I've used my lace heart border punch and my pearls from ebay. Oh, and a spot of glitter glue on the swirl.
