My Fathers Day Card...

Fathers Day Card...for a few challenges...




Sorry not been around much, been sooo bsy again at work and always shattered at night and in my bed long before the birdies...been busy catching up on housework and trying to be organised for getting the wedding invites made when the last of the card Ive ordered gets delivered...hopefully will be a production line on the go this week...

Anyways took a break last night to chill and made dad's fathers day card...was a bit rushed but got there in the end...my dad is a no fuss and frills kinda guy like most men out there...he has just treated himself to a new wide screen telly and a mini didi ickle one for my mum for the bedroom...think world cup fever has hit the house because went to visit today and he has a wall chart pride of place on the living room wall...going back to his youth me thinks.lol...

On to the card...I made the t.v. out of black shiny holograph card, using the keepsake board Media n Pastimes...had this board for ages and Im ashamed to say its the 1st time Ive used it...
Found the horse racing pic online and resized to fit the board...

The fabby image is Ronnie Relaxing that you can find here through the lovely Emma who is fundraising for a great cause in memory of her dad...if you have not got Ronnie in your digi stamp collection pop over and support her cause...
He's been coloured with Promarkers I'm bit dissappointed didnt use the right settings on printer and its smudged slightly, but with my dads eyesight Im sure he wont notice.lol...

His comfy chair has been paper pieced with papers downloaded from the fantastic Summer Driggs blog...she has the most fantastic freebies and all print beautifully...pop over here and have a look at her blog it is a real inspiration...

Background papers are all from the fathers day set from Summer Driggs, I made the scallop edge with circles cut with an xcut punch...

Sentiment coloured with promarkers was a free download from The Creative Cottage
