Cheddar for Dad's Birthday

Hi Everyone!
An unusual post for me today - I don't normally get to post at midday unless it has been scheduled in advance - I'm loving have a few days off!! This morning, I have finished a special birthday card for my Dad who will be celebrating on Thursday! I've used this lovely Cheddar stamp from Sugar Nellie, love this one for cards for men who don't do football or golf!
I followed the sketch over at The Sugar Bowl and the photo inspiration and kept it fairly simply embellished with a little card candy as I don't think Dad would go for the Fussy look!!

Here's a closer look - have you seen what he is reading!!

The papers are downloads from Summer at Summertime designs - love them!

Now I can't make a card without a few challenges!!
Cheddar would like to join the fun at:

The Sugar Bowl - Sketch and photo inspiration
CraftyCatz - One for the men
Crazy4challenges - Use Die cuts (Nesties and Go Kreate dies)
Easy Craft projects - One for the boys
Stamptacular Sunday - SOS For someone special
Whoopsi Daisy - For someone special
Craft your passion - Male card or project
Passion for Promarkers - One for the boys (used promarkers to colour him!)

Thanks for looking - off now to make cakes with Lewis!
