Hubby's card and sale time at Peachy Keen!

If I had a brain I'd be dangerous!
I made this card for Alan and felt proper pleased with myself.
That is, 'till he opened it!...........I'd forgotten to write in it!!!Doh! Ha Ha!
Oh well, it's the thought that counts, isn't it?
Here's his card...
I love this boat stamp and don't use it nearly as much as I should.
It's from 'Art Impressions'. (As is the 'clouds').
I got it at a craft show along with lots of other little stamps that make up scenes.
Wanted to keep it simple though, so opted just for the boat and clouds.
The ticket is '98871 Happy Birthday Ticket'. It's an Inkadinkado clear stamp.
It has six cheeky greeting that fit into the space under Happy Birthday.
Can you see which one I used?
It says 'Senior discount'!Ha Ha! (Well, he IS 73 now).
The base card id Bazzil Bling and the Kraft card is embossed with a Sizzix tree bark folder.
(I was trying to get the impression it's a sandy beach with the tide out causing all those ripples you see).

OK! Now, Peachy Keen are having a fantastic  
Thanksgiving Sale!
You need to get yourself over there and grab a bargain 'coz they will be snapped up mega fast!
Go HERE to grab some loot!

Happy hunting!!!

Viv, I love all your cards and this one is just awesome. I love the richness of the colors. Love how you used the tree bark embossing folder.

How funny, I'll bet hubby had a good laugh. Things like that are normal daily happenings around here anymore. My son calls them Moth-r Moments. lol
