A birthday card for my Dad that includes sneak peek 3

Tomorrow's my Dad's birthday. He and my Mum are hoping to go out for the day if the weather's good so I took his card and presents round this evening. I couldn't resist using a few sneak peek stamps on his card.

Stamp sets: Loads of Love, Loads of Love Accessories, Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Basic Gray, Whisper White
Ink: Stazon Black, Versamark, Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Taken with Teal, SU Watercolour Crayons
Punches: Scallop Oval, Large Oval
Other: Gold EP, Pewter Jumbo Eyelets
Non-SU: White shrink plastic

I also sneaked you a peek at a couple of stamps from the sweet Autumn Days (and that might even be a new Designer Series Paper in the background there)!

It's a bit of a standing joke in our family that the pheasants actually lie in wait, to run out in front of our car. The pheasant stamp was only a bit smaller than the car and wouldn't have looked correct proportionally so I stamped it onto shrink plastic and shrunk it to fit. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to place me, DH and Bess in the car, lol.

Glad to say that he liked it :-)
