Take It Easy, Card For Dad

Wouldn't we all like to, take it easy, that is. Swinging about in a hammock all day. My Dad always wanted a hammock, now he has one, he says, 'I can't get in the flippin' thing now, without falling out the other side!' So of course, this card will be put by for him, probably Fathers Day (in June) as his birthday isn't until November, and it's a bit cold in November to be swinging about in a hammock! I've left the sentiment simple so I can change them if need be!
The Penny Black image was stamped and embossed, coloured with Promakers and I've done a bit of 3D-ing too. The papers are a mixture of Pink Petticoat, (the stripes) and My Minds Eye. (both came free with magazines) The key and key-hole are brads. They're by Woodware. Bit disappointed they didn't include hinges too! Or perhaps they do in another set. The font is a Freebie, it's called GoodDog and you can download it HERE where you'll find two downloads, one with extra dots! (GoodDog Cool)

A bit of a sad day today Frog the Cat passed away. She would've been 19 in September.
