It's Your Turn for the Remote - Card for my Dad

Happy Saturday Everyone!
We have a very busy day ahead with a special "Meet the players, have some fun and some food" event at the Frisco Roughriders Baseball that our daughter was invited to after being recognized as an "Educational MVP" at her school.
Then as soon as that is done we'll be whizzing back home for the England V US game, with lots of loud shouting and maybe a few beers too! Then tomorrow morning hubby and our oldest son go off to Scout Camp for a week so there will be all the last minute stuff to finish for that, I'll be in need of a break too!
So yesterday I managed to make the card that is now winging its way "across the pond" to my Dad in England (don't worry he doesn't check my blog)
It is a lot more simple than my usual cards as postage is so expensive for the square, lumpy, bumpy cards especially Air Mail. And also every time I send a square card home it takes weeks instead of days.

The Shabby Tea Room - Just For Dad
Cards For Men - Fathers Day
Double Dutch - Fathers Day
Tellens Place - Fathers Day
Tanda Stamps - Fathers Day
My Partner in Crafting Crime - Fathers Day
Simple Doodles - Just for You Dad

Always Playing With Paper - Fathers Day (their very first challenge!)
Paper Cutz - Fathers Day
Drunken Stampers - Fathers Day

Just For Fun - Olive, Light Blue and Tan




Card Recipe:
Image - Dad's Remote from The Digi Shack
Paper - DCWV The Guy Stack
Medium - Copic Markers
Sentiment - Printed in Harrington font



I thought I'd add a little special surprise inside :)



Here is a close up of the paper piecing.
I actually used the same image last year for the card for my hubby so I think I better find a different one for him this year ;)
Have a wonderful weekend!

Katie, your card is a hoot! My hubby wants to come and live at your house... he'd like just one day in the year when he can actually control the remote. Well, he might get that chance during the US/England match - as a fellow Brit, I'll be waving my St George's!

Your card is fabulous. I love your paper piecing - it's perfection. The little surprise inside is great.

Thank you for joining the Paper Players in our inaugural challenge
