Happy Birthday Dad

A much simpler design this time - the image is from Patchwork Pals and is coloured with Promarkers. The letters were cut with the Jasmine Cricut cartridge. Not sure if I should add some embellishments, mens cards are so tricky!! (Note to self - must by some more male images) It had to be a Goalie - my parents met when my mum was the sister on casualty and dad was injured during a cup final. She had him stitched, and out of casualty, in time to be back on the pitch, before the end of the match - he still found time to ask her out on a date though! A fortnight ago Matthew had a match near Lincoln so Mum and Dad met use there - at the age of 74 he couldn't resist having a go in goal and he made a save.

Entering this for I love Promarkers - Mens Cards and Cupcake Craft Challenge Monochromatic.
Thanks for looking.


  1. Hi Lynda, I love the story to go with your card today and the explanation of why he is a goalie on your card. I am sure your dad is going to love it, especially the thought that has gone into it too. Thanks for joining us at I ♥ Promarkers with this lovely card.
