Happy Birthday Dad

Another busy day almost down.
Today was dads birthday, so we had birthday tea at our house since my mum is still away.
Yesterday I managed to whip up a card, really need to work on building up my card stocks, so I have one on hand when I need it!.....
I have turned this photo of my Dads motor car, his pride and joy into a 'stamp' in PhotoShop, I then embossed the printed image four times with clear embossing powder , and used the shinny image to make my card.
Today, for the first time, I was called home from work , by my stressed Dad. Andrew decided to have a dysreflexic attack while I was at work, not at all good timing! Last night he had one at 1 am, so things are going a little hay wire with him again. Lucky we are off to Burwood on Sunday for an 'over haul'.
Tomorrow afternoon I have a Teacher aide course in town, so there will be no scrapping time yet again!
Here is a LO I did a little while ago, using the August Monthly Kit for Scrapbook Outlet...

Thankyou to everyone who pops in for a visit. As soon as I get a bit of spare time I will be stopping by to visit you :-)
Take care xox

Love your fathers day card and great bright colours on your layout :O)

You take care Sonya, you have a lot going on. Hope you get some "chill out scrap time" real soon.
Love the idea of the photo made into a stamp, haven't played in Photoshop for ages but that could be fun.
Love the layouts they scream "summer"

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
