A Card for Dad

Happy Friday everyone!! The weekend is here! It amazes me, but no matter what I do, days drift by so quickly and boom! It's back to the end of the week and the beginning of the next before you can say Three Jolly Frenchmen and a Pink Poodle! It was my dad's birthday last week and then my sister-in-law's, luckily I'd already made their cards but I thought I'd add this one, which I made my dad last year...I think, as I hadn't blogged about it here although I think it's been 'somewhere' and it looks sort of 'pre-blog'. Of course my dad being a gardener, I'm allowed to add flowers and he was a bee keeper, so, there's some bees! The rabbit? Hmmm, well, I can remember one day when I was about seven or eight, I asked mum, "What sort of pie is this?" and when she said 'Rabbit'...I was horrified and convinced it was my pet rabbit Ricky, who'd died a day or so before! Both mum and dad said, "Don't be silly, of course it isn't!" but even to this day, I have my doubts! My Gran once told me about sugared mice...oh no, not the sweet sugar coated candy, but REAL mice boiled in sugar!! She told me they were very sweet and very crunchy! You could eat them all, even the bones!! Is that true? I have no idea! but my Gran was a bit of a fibber! And on that note...I'll leave you! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. fab card again hun great desing and such detail too hugs cheryl xxxxxxx

  2. Lovely card Lyn, and great post, I love all the background stories. Sugared mice?????? I would say it wasn't true, but in your family, who knows? :P:P:P

  3. Beautiful card, Lyn! 'Tis no wonder you are as bonkers as you are, missus - your family sound just as mad as mine! I also had a rabbit pie moment and fled to the garden crying my eyes out - of course, my bunny was still there but I was distraught that anyone would want to eat such a cute critter. Perhaps that's why I'm so cynical about everything, these days. Have a good weekend, hon.x :)

  4. So pretty card! Lovely image and colors.

  5. Oh Lyn you always bring a smile to my face, yes your card is fabulous and I love your rabbit and his friends. But your story of the rabbit pie would have the same effect on me, I just carnt eat rabbit for the same reason as yours and the sugar mice, well we are having awful problems with mice getting in our attic, and unfortunately we have to resort to the traps or we would be overrun with them. Oh well such is life, with love and hugs Shirleyxx
