Quixotic No. 1 "Birthday"

There is a new challenge blog in Bloggerland. Elaine at Quixotic and her super DT have started a challenge blog and as it was Elaine's birthday on the 4th November the first theme was .................... you guessed it "Birthday".

My "dad" is 60 at the end of November and I wanted to make him a special card. He loves Country Music, Line dancing, playing the guitar and he and my mum visit Nashville when they can. I thought it would be super to join the first ever challenge with a card for my "dad".



This handsome cowboy doesn't look anything like my dad but he was the only image I had which fitted a little. He is from The Greeting Farm and I have coloured him with Prisma Pencils. The papers are from K & Co. and I made some myself too.
This is the inside of the card. For those of you who don't read danish it simply says:-
Grandad - happy 60th birthday.
I hope you like him. I had a great time making the card. Just wish I had a guitar to add.
Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a crafty day, Mette
