Father's Day card - number 1

Day 2 of show-you-everything-I've-made-because-I'm-completely-rubbish :-)

And here is the first of my Father's day cards....

This is for Paul's dad, Ken. Unfortunately he supports the wrong team :-( We are a Villa household while Ken supports Birmingham City. I found myself quite unable to colour a blue shirt for him so I thought I'd opt for the monochrome look :-)

Love this gorgeous cutie - one of my latest additions from a little LOTV spending spree I had to console myself. We had planned a visit in the Leeds area and I was hoping to pop in to their shop and have a good old nosey.... but alas, EVERYTHING was closed over the Jubilee bank holiday and LOTV was no exception so I had to buy online instead.... :-) Oh well, I'll make another visit soon!

Love 'n' hugs,

Haha, too funny that you couldn't colour him a blue shirt! bet you were disappointed that the LOTV shop was closed, I'd LOVE to get in there for a spending spree (don't think my Visa would appreciate it though!)

A smashing mono card Mel & such a sweet stamp. It's so frustrating to look forward to a spot of shopping & find the shops closed & all those goodies so near yet so far. lol.

Oh you're so lucky to live near the LotV shop, I'm green with envy!

I absolutely understand why you couldn't colour this Ted blue (Spurs supporter here, mainly because their Captain used to come into the library where I worked in the 80s and he was such a gent! One day I'll take out a second mortgage and see them play!!)

Seriously, your card looks so sophisticated in monochrome! I love the football paper, too!
