For my Dad....


I've had loads of Father's Day cards to make this year but this one is for my own Dad :-) The image is a digi from Karen's Doodles called Time to Relax that I've coloured with promarkers....

A close up.... (I was quite pleased with my effort on the trees!)

The sentiment is one of the freebie Father's Day sentiments I got last year from The Creative Cottage which sadly closed down earlier this month.....

I also used:
Papers - Clare Curd's, It's a Man's World (green) and Crafts Too (yellow)
Ribbon - from a gift wrapping set from Asda!
Brads - Stash

Sketch Saturday - Fab sketch
Stampin' for the Weekend - Lemon and Lime
Simon Says Stamp - Bingo (bottom line: shape, ribbon, sentiment)
Whoopsi Daisy - Free and Easy

I'm off to link these up.... Don't forget to enter your Father's Day cards in the challenge at Dream Valley!

Have a fab evening!

Love 'n' hugs,
