Happy Birthday Grandad - Vintage James Bear Writing Desk (LOTV)


Here's a card I've made for my Grandads Birthday

Hope I didn't go overboard with the inking lol!

I used:

James Bear Artpad image 
On a high note check paper 
Birthday Sentiment and Tag Sentiment Stamps
(All LOTV)
My Minds Eye - Lost & Found - Newsprint paper 

Distress inks - Antique linen & Vintage photo
Star punch
Notepad paper

I have a bad migraine at the moment but trying to keep up with blogs!

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

(I like to add a couple layers using nice papers and embellishments - I'm not good at simple one layer designs)
(New Distress inks & art pad)

Ribbon girl - Use any image


  1. Hi Lucy
    Hope your Migraine is better now....
    Fabulous card for your Grandad.... Love it....
    Hugs Sylvie xx

  2. I think you got the inking just right Lucy, sure your Granddad will love his special card.

    Hope the migraine eases, can totally sympathise being one who has more than a few each month. Just remember to remove the migraine patch before you have visitors, I've forgotten more than once !
