Stunning card Mina, simply beautiful hun, love the delicate shimmer on his wings. As for your dad....whenever mine says "I don't know" I make up a goodie bag of allsorts for him, this year he had a gardening theme, and what was he most pleased with? The garden string. Sigh. Have a fab day sweetie. Hugs, Sxx

Hi Mina!
Definitely go with the holiday goodies... one of those Victorian swimsuits! LOL! Seriously though, holiday stuff is practical and if your dad is like most men, he'll be happy with practical.

Your card is super stunning! Looks very soft and sleeeeepy... Gorgeous!

Hugs, Meesh. xx

Tracey said...

OMG I love that image so much, it looks just like my little boy when he is asleep, arms and legs all akimbo and tousled hair - soooo cute !!!!! lovely colours and sweet flowers. I have just bought my hubby one of those super posh swiss army knife type thingies, you know the sort - scissors, penknife and all manner of gadgets all in a little leather pouch that fits in his pocket, he is delighted, not sure if your dad is the gadget kind of man but if he is these are great little doodads ( we go camping so DH is eager to use his on his next expedition lol) good luck hope you find something, men are always soooo hard to buy for xxx

Anonymous said...

Oh wow mina this is realy stunning.. It is what I sould be doing.. But I'm no angel... your papers are realy gorgeous.. It's such a perfect card.. Did you get your Dad sorted... lol K

Lorraine said...

Another beauty, Mina! Love that image and your coloring is amazing (even with white objects). Yup, men are hard to shop for. Socks or undies, that'll teach 'em - er, wait not undies for your dad, LOL!

Diane said...

What a fabulous image, Mina and you've placed him on a stunning card! Love those glittery flowers too!
I think a bag of holiday goodies is a great idea for your Dad's birthday and some sweeties for the journey if he's allowed them. Men usually hate shopping for all that stuff anyway.
