Orson is back!!


Good morning all friends! Hope you like my Christmas layout! Today I will show you a card I made for my father who is turning 80 on the 26th of December! I asked Orson (Nina May's adorable monkey) to help me carry a Happy Birthday (Grattis) and a cake to him! Since my fathers birthday is around Christmas I made it in red and green with the help of sketch 77 from Sketch Saturday and at Stamping for the Weekend they wanted us to us BIG numbers, and I think 80 is BIG enough, lol! Happy Birthday Dad!!

As you can see I used Orson twice and this is how the original digi stamp looks like, with the cake! Plenty of room on the other side to tell my father all the best wishes!

Recipe: Stamp (c)Nina.J.May TMITA
Colored with Copics
Papers: Basic Grey
Buttons: Bunny Zoe's Craft
Numbers: Provo Craft
Sketch: Sketch Saturday

Jättesöt apa!
Tack för din kommentar i min blogg! Jag älskar ju snö! Men var är din julsida? Nåt jag missat!

Här i Sala är det +7 grader och dimma eller regn. Så har det varit några dagar nu! Stackars 4åringen som ska ut i skogen med dagis idag. Tänk om det varit snö istället!!!
Kram på dej!

Haha! Min dataskärm gör bilden smalare! Men nu ser jag några spetsar = blommor. Jag ska starta stora datorn så jag ser dem! DU har ju så intressant innehåll i din blogg så jag missar dekorationen!! Ska skärpa mej! Kram!!!!
