an easel for dad

Hi all
 A friend asked me to make a card for her dad who is 70...I  used her fave bugaboo image of gus and i coloured him with promarkers...I used the gorgeous photo inspiration pic from stampin for the weekend as my guide for the colours........The fabulous  men in mind alphabet and papers were perfect and what's more they  are free from the clipartfairy....
 my friend's dad loved it.....
