Father's Day is just round the corner~


Hi All~

My card tonight is a jolly affair~
Although I no longer have my lovely dad anymore, I do still make my Father's Day card, for my wonderful Father-in-Law of 25 years, John...
I love this little image from Penny Black, the Slapstick stamp 'Happy Day'.

I think it is proberbly a little bit boyish for dad, but I am sure he will still love it anyway, and who could not fall in love with a bucket of frogs!!

I have kept it quite Mono colour by using brown/cream. The beautiful DP is by Bella BLVD called Nana's Apron, the punched border is made with my favorite EK Success punch called Morrocan, and I have used brads and a small NS punched flower.
The sentiment is a topper I have had for years, they all have different family sayings on them, and obviously this one is dad!

I am having major PC problems today, it's on a go slow, so if this post is sucessful and all is ok It will be a miracle!!

Challenges this card fit in with:
Sir Stampalot-punch it, The Creative Cottage-Father's Day and The Sweet Stop's sketch, go check them out below:
