Father's Day Camper Van~

Hi Girls,
Can I say a quick hello to all my old and new followers, how lovely to hear from you all, your comments are always so warm and lovely.

I am having a few Blogger problems at the mo, but it looks like some of you are too, so I am not the only one. I sometimes cannot comment (and that makes me sad,) but I do get to see your gorgeous work so I am happy about that. The other day I had to un-check the "Keep me signed in" box in order to comment, so I hope this helps you if you have problems.

Hubby is off work this week, so we have been doing a few things together in the garden. I am not a very good gardener, I leave that to Chris, but I do like to help him! The weather has not been too bad, today has been "Odd" though, one minute sunny the next a drop of rain, now the breeze has built up, great for my washing that is blowing around like mad out there!




Right....On to today's card. I have made this while watching the debut of Dawn Bibby on Create and Craft. I was a bit unsure she would fit in with the others on this new channel, but she has and it seemed ok to see her there.




I have used this gorgeous Helz Cuppleditch image for my Father-in-Laws Father's Day Card. It's a bit early to make a F D card, but I like to be on the ball and not leave things to the last minute, AND I will have all the Playgroup daddy's cards to make nearer the time too.
I have used some Basic Grey papers and an Anna Griffin ribbon punch, plus a few Hobbyhouse pearls. The Image is coloured with Pro-Markers. The Sentiment is pc generated.

Beginning to think it was just me that blooger was having a downer on. Pleased to know I'm not alone! Hopefully this will post. I have found ticking the box works for me. I just love this card Debbie. The colours and the flowers are gorgeous. Takes me right back to the flower power days. Sis's boyfriend had a camper van that she made the curtains for in a green flower pattern. Argh. Those were the days. Hugs Mrs A.

Fabulous card Debbie.
I love this camper van and perfect for so many occasions. Yes, you are super organised making a Fathers Day card already, I will be wishing I'd done the same thing when the day arrives and I'm still trying to make one!

MFT stands for My Favourite Things. I get the dies from Tracy at Dies to Die for, and they all cut beautifully.

Hugs Elaine xx
