Relax & enjoy!!

Happy Thursday Folks!!

It's time for another challenge at CRAFT and this time our theme is:


which is fast approaching, so a good time to get your card made!!

I've had this Gruffies decoupage in my stash from Joanna Sheen for ages and I must admit I'd forgotten about it until I was having a bit of a tidy up!! Can you have too much stash I wonder??!! Anyway I decided this would be a perfect image for my Dad, who has a reputation for falling asleep as soon as he sits down on the sofa!! I had also forgotten how long it takes to do took forever to cut this out and I nearly gave up!!

As the finished image is quite big I decided to keep the rest of the card really simple with just some matting and layering. The sentiment is a bit hard to read in the photo but it says 'It's a hard life'

Isn't he so cute...

Side view of the layers:

Finished the card off with this resin sunflower which I have also rediscovered, I bought this in a Craft Central closing down sale, probably 2 years ago - I knew it would come in useful.....eventually!!
