Grandsons 21st

Morning and we are all on tenterhooks as our latest little Grandson is about to be born DIL Diane was having twinges yesterday and was expecting an early morning call but no everything has calmed down again so still waiting and hopefully if everything goes to plan she is having a home birth in a birthing pool so fingers crossed.
We have a new ATG/Masculine card challenge at 613 Avenue Create this morning and we are sponsored by Sami Stamps-I was chosen to play ATG with no sponsor image but still made a masculine card using a set of Nautical Stamps which I won a few years ago and just have Aspect on the folder.I made this card for our eldest Grandson from my eldest sons first marriage and we have all been unable to see until a couple of years ago he got in touch with his Dad.He is a trainee cadet engineer on a cruise ship-so made him a nautical card,thought it seemed apt-I made one for his Dad to give him with Harrison in his uniform but will keep that for a later day.Cardstock from Papermill Direct,Big Splash Border die from Memory Box/also used some of the negative too,papers from stash and printed sentiment on Dafont,splat stamps from Visible Image.

What a super idea to use the wave border die to make a frame, I've never thought of that. Perfectly masculine and a very nice version of a nautical card.

Wendy Nicola Jackson said...

Oh wow! What a wonderful card for a man and a stunning 21st card. Love what you've done here, the layout, paper, sepia tones. It's a fantastic piece sure to be treasured by your Grandson! How lovely to be able to share his journey in life now. Thanks so much for joining in the fun with the Fab 'n' Funky crew this week for our Big Birthdays challenge. Hope you'll come join us again soon. Hugs, Wends x Fab 'n' Funky DT

Cogratulations to Harrison on his 21st birthday - and to you on finally getting contact with him again! I know how that goes - I have been in your shoes before! Your card is lovely and I am sure will mean a lot to him! I love the waves you created with the swirls - and you have made a wonderful masculine card!
