Granpas Birthday Card

Me again, just wanted to share my wee card I made for my lovely Granpas Birthday!!
A few months back my Granpa was slagging me as usual and told me he has kept every little thing I have made him and then began to show my hubby them! I was so touched that my "baldy" Granpa had kept them!! There was stuff from when I was so young and barely readable and even wee tiny cards I would make just when I was colouring!! Now that was what got me thinking.......


Ingredients:
card stock - Papermill
Papers - Papermaina "heather"
Stamp - Stella from Greeting farm
Coloured with promarkers

Everything else from stash


Hubby chose this wee stamp for me saying it reminded him of me and my new hair-do! So my brain starting working, yip the gears took a while to get moving!! And hey presto............ A card for my Granpa with "me" on it!!!
Hope you like it, its something different but I know he loved it!!
