Happy Birthday to a wonderful husband.

I made this card for my husband a while ago.  It was his birthday at the weekend. This is my favourite Sparkle Creations stamp because it reminds me of him.  He loves his coffee and music.  Thankfully not as much as he loves his house full of girls:) . 
I'm afraid that the hair colouring of this lovely lad is not so good.  I've learnt alot about colouring hair in the last month.

I used:
Stamp- Street Corner Josh from Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp.
Copics from memory E25, E27, E29,E35, G20, G24 , B37, B32, B34, C9, C7, C1 and C3
Paper from Scenic Route and Kaiser Craft
Tag was a freebie and I am so very sorry I can't remember where from.
Buttons, ink and twine from my stash.
I am entering this in the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp Challenge #52.

I love Simply Sassy Stamps

This is my second post for today.  I just think this image is soooo gorgeous.  It reminds me of my eldest daughter.  When I was cropping this image I noticed that she has a stray hair which I will go and attempt to fix.  Her hair looks a lot darker in the photo than on the actual card.

I just love this LOTV image Lazy Afternoon.  I picked this image for my Dad's birthday and when I saw the LOTV's Challenge Blog it fitted perfectly. So I thought I'd make it early (his birthday isn't until October) and I like it.
