An Inkspiration for Dad's birthday

Hi Guys,

Are you shocked by the number of posts this week? There is even one scheduled for tomorrow. Don't get too used to it LOL.

It is Dad's b'day on the 22nd and I have long wanted to have the PTI VW stamp as Dad had bugs when he was younger and has a soft spot for them. I finally gave in and ordered it when I was getting a few other things ;-)
When I saw the latest Inkspiration sketch I knew it would fit the bill perfectly (thanks Keesh & Inkspirations team).

The sketch:

And my card:

I used the Travel Journal DSP (from the soon finishing Summer Mini). I love this paper for blokes. Maybe I should stock up?!? I took the card colours of Not Quite Navy (NQN), Bashful Blue and Pumpkin Pie from the DSP. The circles were cut using my Circle Scissor Plus. The sentiment is from the PTI set. Thanks Kirsty for the inspiration for the 'Happy Birthday' banner.

I'm 100% certain that dad won't be looking at my blog. Mum probably will but she won't give it away (hi Mum *waving*). I probably should make one for her to give him too. I have a pretty cool train stamp I could use...

Must go and have a kip before work. Days off are oh, so short.

Hi Fi! This is a gorgeous card for your Dad! That little veedub is so cute & I love it teamed with the "map" DSP & those great colours. The banner is perfect too. :)
