Granddads are hard to make cards for unless you can get them talking about their past and then you can make a card that will evoke memories. Anyway this card isn't one of those its simply one of contemporary times for my dad (my son's granddad) at least. He is happiest sat in front of the TV remote in hand next to the garden window ,best of all his worlds. he doesn't wear a flat cap though for anyone who was wondering despite us all living in Yorkshire.

I used this fab lily of the valley stamp and their tag stamps too.The image is coloured with promarkers and fussy cut. I then used a die cut as a background but offset the image, before adding the message on the tags with a little bling. 

The base card is white and I used a plain blue matt and a vertical strip of sport paper from a dovecraft pad and a scrap of word paper from the same pack.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
