It's my FIL's Birthday today, he's 70. Now I shamefully have to say I haven't made a card to give from DH and I, but I have done one from Jake. My inlaws always appreciate everything I give to them handmade and I know he will love this. This is the first time I've used 'All in the family' and at first I was a bit daunted by it, but with the aid of a Stamp-a-ma-jig you can't go wrong really. The 'Grandad' was a lightbulb moment after a disaster. I was all ready to stamp the word straight onto the card using those tiny alphas by Studio G (99p bargain), and before I knew it I'd stamped the 'N' the wrong way round so it looked like a 'Z'!!! Panicking of how on earth I was going to correct this mistake I came up with stamping the letters on cardstock and cutting out with the 1/2" circle punch. I like how it's turned out. How about that for a happy accident. Love that DSP too - it's the Ski Slope paper. Who says it has to be just for Christmas?? lol I'm off to work now. Have a good one it's going to be a scorcher. Tfl, Jo :)
