Happy Father-to-be’s Day to DH!

Today is Father’s Day, and because Doug is effectively already a dad – we just have to wait a little longer – I decided to get him a little present and card from me and the twins. Smile 

I started the card yesterday at the crop but didn’t have the right stamps for the tag (and it needed adjusting due to the “bespoke” text anyway) – and the fact that I only managed to finish one Thank you card yesterday has nothing to do with that. LOL.

As for the present – we saw this book at the Twin Group meeting in June, and Doug’s borrowed it. I had a quick look and ordered for him online, and told him off for reading the book – he thought it was due to being a bit superstitious. Winking smile

But here you go … the present and card for the father-to-be…

BILD0146

(absolutely funny book about babies … just like any electrical manual etc.).

BILD0147

Stamps are all from Dimension Fourth Ltd (F1 car and Flags - Doug LOVES F1 &), I also used one of the Spellbinder tags. Everything is embossed in “Blueberry Regular” from WOW Embossing powders – I found them at the Craft Fair at Ratho in May, and just loved their colours (might have to buy more!!). The papers are from the mixed pack in a carrier bag which Costco had last year or the year before for sale.

The Father-to-Be loved both – even though he first thought I just wrapped the borrowed book!! Open-mouthed smile
