Hello Laddie

I made this card for my dad and totally forgot to post it - what the heck?!  I mean how could I forget?! My dad played in the Nelson Pipe Band all my life; we grew up listening to the bagpipes and two of my brother joined the band (one piper one drummer) so I had to have this Laddie from TGF!



The image is stamped with memento's ink and coloured with copics.   The DS paper is from Basic Greys Joival collection.  I added some black rhinestones on his jacket and metal on this hat (that's so not what it's called!!) to finish the card off.

I hand delivered this card to my dad in the fall - he thought it was fantastic.  When I was a kid I  didn't think I liked the pipe band music, but now when I hear the pipes anywhere my foot starts tapping!

Thanks for stopping by &  have a great day

Dana

What a great card! And perfect for a bagpiping Dad. I LOVE the sound of pipes - we're Irish - and they actually give me chills everytime I hear them. Great shading on your "hat" - your plaid paper is perfect!
