Uncle!

I wasn't able to amke a card for the Daring Cardmakers this week - I do hate missing out on a dare too grrrr.  It's Keryn's turn today, so please visit the DCM BLOG and find out what Keryn's dare is and of course to see the cards the more organised members of the DT have made!
I'm hoping that I can add mine later, once things have settled down "Chez Waffle"!

I can't let a Friday go without adding a card, though, so here's one I made last week for my Uncle, who's birthday is today.  Happy Birthday Uncle Bryan!
Papers: Fancy Pants The Daily Grind
Brads, ribbon, sticky crochet all from stash
Fab Camera charm is from Charmed Cards and Craft
Lettering made in PSP and cut with Mr Robo
Photos of some favourite castles in Northumberland are mine and Hubby's, printed B&W, matted onto chipboard and inked.

My uncle loves taking photos and like us he loves his castles - especially those in Northumberland.
Just in case you don't recognise them, from left to right you can see;
Bamburgh Castle, Lindisfarne Castle, Alnwick Castle and my favourite, Warkworth Castle.  Dunstanburgh Castle was supposed to be in the frame too, but I printed them to big to fit it in.
One day I'll get the hang of planning ahead!
Or maybe not....
I hope he likes the card and I hope you do too
Thank you for visiting

Great idea for a card - specially a boy type - sure he won't mind - indeed know about the missing number 5. Hope things aren't too hectic Kathy!

This is lovely Kathy and you've put so much thought into it. The little camera charm and the photos are fab.

Love Lynda xxx
