Unfortunately my Dad has had to go into a home to be cared for. Luckily Mum has found a lovely caring home & visits every day. We noticed that some of the residents had names on their room doors so I made name plaques for Dad & his room mate Frank.
Mum, hubby & I had a trip out to Mornington to Paper2 to gather a few supplies to play with. Hubby was rewarded for being patient & watching the cricket on the TV on the sofa provided in store to keep the menfolk happily occupied, by being taken to the beach for a swim - much needed on a lovely sunny day :-)
The letters were plain chipboard which I covered with paper, sanded the edges & used prismacolour pens round the edges & to do the faux stitching.
The bird is a clear stamp from We are Memory Keepers & I decoupaged it. The house & it's door & windows & chimney I cut freehand. I also cut the grass strip freehand. Frank's letters I used brown prismacolour pens round the edge to give a distressed look & make the letters stand out.
