Big Bad Dad

Good morning!  It's Tiddly Tuesday again!  Don't they come around fast!  This fortnight we have a Father's Day Challenge for you, or if you don't celebrate Father's Day, then a masculine card will be great.  Head on over to the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog and check out the fabulous cards my teamies made!

I decided to use Big Bad Dad and make it a birthday card for Dad instead of a Father's Day card:


































































How cool is he?!  And check out those cute papers I found in my stash!  BB bought these for me when she was home in Australia a wee while ago... I think they are from Birch Fabrics.  The cogs are from Make it Crafty and the sentiment is from SRM stickers.  I added a Dad down the bottom with stickers from October Afternoon.

Here's a close-up:






















And here are the copics I used:

















I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Lexi's Creations: For the man in our lives
Love to Create: Father's Day or a Special Guy in your Life
Here Come the Boys: Anything Goes

Have a lovely day!  I'm going to be busy with our boatload of guests!
