Happy Father's Day

Morning everyone,

Sending best wishes to all the fathers out there on their special day - and yes, it's another perfectly good reason to make a card. Hehe! I lost my own dad when I was 13, so Father's Day is always a special day to remember him.  I have a wonderful stepdad though and today's card is made for him ...

It's an 8x8" again today, layered with sage green textured cardstock and spotty paper from my stash, which has been inked around the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink.  I doodled a border around the edge for extra effect.  The image is 'Lazy Afternoon' by LOTV and is coloured with, yes you guessed, my Promarkers.  The lettering is made using alphabet cardstock stickers from Making Memories and are mounted onto circles/lacey circles cut using my nesties.  Added embellishments include some green organza ribbon, two fancy corners topped with adhesive pearls and some tiny green adhesive pearls to accent the image.  

I would like to enter my card into the following challenge:

Craft Punked (formerly Glitter Geeks) - Father's Day

I'm also sending big hugz to a special friend today who lost her dad recently - I know today will be a tough one for her - I'll be thinking of you, hun xx

Enjoy your Sunday,
Hugz, Jan xx
