Card for Dad

My dad had his celebration day last March which actually falls on the same time as St Patrick's day. I made a card with a vintage car for him and used some lovely rich brown scrapbooking paper for the background. I've kept this pretty paper in my crafty stash for a long time hesitating each time if I should use it or not - touching it, looking at it and putting it away each time (don't we all do that sometimes with our resources?:P) Dad definitely deserves this. The edges of the paper and the badge have been distressed for the old look ;) 




The vintage card was well received. Dad and mum really like it :)
I also jazzed up one Easter card :) Initially it looked like this:


I found it a bit too plain so I embellished it with a relief paste I normally use when I do glass painting :) I thought the little dots would add a bit cheer to it.
Now it looks like this:



Currently I'm enjoying my 2nd week of Easter (school) break so plenty of lying-ins, reading and working on some little cross stitched cards :)
