Happy Birthday Les..

It's was John's step dad, Les's birthday yesterday, and I found the perfect image from the Forever Friends collection, 'Just For Him' papers. Well, a bit of a cheat really as it is just a picture on the paper. But it was the hat that did it. Les has one just like it, and
he loves to sit out in the gardens, in his chair with a nice cuppa, so, as I said, it was the perfect picture to use for his Birthday card.
Three of the papers came from this collect, except for the pink check inside, that one came from a 6x6 pack 'For You' Both these packs I've had for ages. I really should use them up, seeing once more...I'm out of printer ink! Where does it go!!!??
How I made it. Easy! First I edged a pearl blank card with a dark brown Promarker. Cut the 6x6 papers down to fit, edged them with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo and fixed them on allowing a little of the brown Promarker edging to show. I covered the inside and the back in the same way, keeping back the strips I'd sliced off to add to the front and the inside of the card. Added little bit of micro glitter round the bear's hat, a few Card Candi, a little dragonfly gem, a sentiment and that's it!
The font is a freebie, of course, I liked the little hearts, it's called Cupid de Locke and you can download it HERE.
Too hot to stay crafting indoors but at the same time, too hot out side as well!! Hope you've all had a fabulous day.
