Happy Friday!

Happy Friday everyone!!  I don’t know about you, but I am very pleased to see the weekend rolling up again!  Not that it’ll make a jot of difference to the time that the children will have us up and about, but hey ho!  Long gone are the days of sleeping in til noon and partying til dawn…..!

Anyway, today I’d like to share a card I was asked to make for a friend’s father in law, inspired by a love of the seaside!2013-10-16 13.58.26

Both the banner and “Dad” were cut using the Silhouette.  Originally, the banner had lovely shapes cut out of it, but for some unknown reason, I couldn’t get a clean cut 😦  I was a little short on time, so after trying everything I could think of to sort the problem, I ended up “tweaking” the banner a little!  I ungrouped the image, removed the detailing from inside the pennants and cut a much simpler image.  I then cut some small hearts, using a hand punch, from glittery white card, stuck them to the banner and added a little Stickles sparkle.  The two background papers were both random pieces of cardstock from my stash, along with some baker’s twine and an old shirt button to finish!
