No 1 Dad

Hi everyone, well this is the card that Kelsey made last night for Father's Day. She enlarged the number 1 on the computer and then cut it out using the Fiskars shape cutter, inked the edges to give it more definition. Next she used some of my peel offs, coloured them in and layered them. Lastly she used my eyelet setter tool and put 3 weird eyelets in that I had sitting about. Only on weddings or funerals does her Dad wear a shirt and tie, oh and big band parades, but he does look sexy when he's all smartly dressed I must say (scrummy even), the rest of the time when he's not working he's out the back kicking football with both Joe and Kelsey and they enjoy themselves messing about while Mummy is doing all the housework, gives me peace. Anyway, I've tried to upload this onto the Fiskarettes blog for her to enter their competition, but needless to say I've had no luck. I've also entered this card into the blog candy that Lainy is giving away, and I've promised Lainy that if the card wins that I will give the candy to Kelsey. She is getting very good at this card making business, she is picking up a few tips from my fellow Scottish card makers and really enjoys reading what they've been up to. Hope you all have had a good day, it's rained here most of the day so no doubt its heading over to Scotland and England tomorrow, enjoy it a wee pressie from Northern Ireland xoxox

When is Kelsey getting her own blog?

Well done Kelsey your card is stunning. Love the design & my favourite part is the little eyelets you put in. Keep up the good work honey as your cards just keep getting better & better. Get into that craft room with your old mum more often. We love seeing your creations.

Big hugs to you both.

Hi Karen Kelseys card is Beautiful!! I am sorry you are having problems uploading to the Fiskars' site. I have tried to email you at the AOL email address you registered with but the email was rejected saying 'mailbox not found' Could you email me through the email contact on my personal blog so that I can get in touch with you that way. Thanks a million :)
