CPS 5...'Grandad'

Nan is still in hospital and Grandad is feeling a little under the weather (he is 92!) so I made him this card... It fits in pretty well with the CPS 5 sketch - which called for stamping (eek!) I am about as much use to stamps and ink as a chocolate teapot, plus there is also the fact that I only own about 3 stamps and Jared has peeled off the wood bit on at least two of them.... I made my own lol, The stars are sizzix cut funky foam, layered 3 times, I added a foam handle with DST and used it to stamp in white then brown ink. Not too bad (even if I do say so myself!!) I also used Stella Ruby papers by Basic Grey, Papermania (I think!) eyelets which set so easily with a cropodile, Paper String from Ikea, K&Co monogram, Rub-ons, stitching (by hand) and a leetle bit of inking.

TFL :)
