Sketch Saturday etc, DT news and a question!

Here's my card following the sketch at Sketch Saturday. I've used coredinations cardstock, sanded back to make it look a bit more 'worn', My Mind's Eye 'bloom & grow' papers and a stamp from Little Claire Designs, coloured with promarkers (the background is chalked). I've used distress ink, in brushed corduroy I think, on the edges of my papers and image. I've added some ribbons that I got at a craft show, a couple of buttons from my stash - one with ribbon and one tied with yellow thread, and the sentiment is computer generated. Which brings me onto my question - is it 'grandad' or 'granddad'??? I'll have to change it if I've done it wrong!

I'm also entering this into the following challenges:

I also have to tell you all about a fab new challenge blog Totally Gorjuss which I'd be excited about anyway, but I'm especially excited because I'm on the DT, yay! As the name suggests, it's for all your Gorjuss Girl creations! The first challenge is on Friday 16th October - hope you'll all join in :o)

Great card, love that stamp. I'd spell it with one d too. What font have you used, it's fab. Sarah

Becouse I am Dutch I use dictionary when I don't know the correct spelling. With 1 D or with 2 are both recognized, but with two is better.
I would leave it the way it is, isn't wrong after all and the card itself looks gorgeous so...

Lisa said...

Hi Lisa, Great card! I love the colour combo and the image is perfect for a male card. I personally spell Grandad (and Grandaughter) with one D because I think it looks better but not sure if it is the correct spelling.

Thanks for joining us at the Crafty Calendar Challenge.

Jo said...

Fab card hun!
I'm sure Grandad Alan will love it too
(as far as I am aware grandad is always spelt with one D, I can't recall ever seeing it spelt with 2, think about how it is spelt on shop bought cards? they always have one D I think)
mind you it has been that long since I have been in a card shop I can't remember!! lol
Thank you for joining in with sketch saturday this week :)
