Grandad's Shed

Hi Folks
First of all thank you for the help with what papers to use with Promarkers, it was very helpful and I shall be trying a few different ones. And on to this card, Mum asked me to do a card for her Dad and this cute little stamp shouted 'use me'! My Grandad isn't the best DIYer, bless him, and recently tried to put a door on his shed, which doesn't quite fit the hole of the original door, I wish I had a photo to show you all! Sorry, I really don't mean any disrespect but it is quite funny, hence the writing on the little sign :)
I went abit overboard with my distressing too, but I think I may have got away with it! Right, he's going into a couple of challenges aswell:
CardsForMen 'Father's Day' (2nd card)
ILovePromarkers 'Bears'
LiliOfTheValley 'Sketch by Dawny' (2nd card)
Thank you for looking, take care folks.

My Recipe
Lili Of The Valley 'in the shed' stamp
Wild Rose Studio 'milton & co' papers
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Craftwork Cards card candy
Memento inkpad
Promarkers to colour image
Distress 'wild honey', 'faded jeans' & 'tea dye' inkpads
Stickles 'vintage photo' distress glue

I think that's brill. Love the distressing and everything. Thanks for taking part at I ♥ Promarkers this week.

p.s. if you're talking about which card to print/stamp your images to colour - Personal Impressions Premier Quality Smooth White is brilliant. I had massive problems until I found this one AND you can buy it from Clare.
