Good morning Blog Friends
Well here I am back from my hollies, it seems like I've been away forever! I've been doing a bit of blogging while I'm away but if I haven't visited in a while i'll be trying to pop in over the next couple of weeks. At the moment I'm just crafting like mad to get up to date with my cards again - course I had to pick the week when its Fathers day, my nephews 21st and my sons birthday all in the same week and two more birthdays next week!
The first card of the week is for our Fathers day challenge over at
there has to be a huge amount of Fathers day crafting going on this week. Here in the UK its Fathers Day this weekend and in the US its in a couple of weeks I think so really you've got no excuse!
We are being sponsored this week by the fabulous
Lili of the Valley
who are offering a prize of £10 to spend in their online store
There's also still time to apply for our DT - we have a call out at the minute so if you're interested go on over and have a look at the Fab'n'Funky challenges blog for details. We already have some applications from some fabulous crafters and its going to be a very difficult decision - but who knows there's still time - it could be you.
The Fathers day card I made is for my youngest son to give to his Dad
I've been very lucky lately twice winning digis from the fabulous Di's Digidownloads, I chose this one especially with Fathers day in mind. Its quite a large scene but was just great to colour, I didn't want to go overboard with colour - it being a "man" card - so I kept to mainly browns and blues, I felt sure he had been working hard in the garden and not skiving , so I gave him dirty hands and feet! - and it needed very little in the way of embellies because the main focus is on the image
This is what I did
Digi stamp - Gardening Ted -from Dis digi downloads
Coloured with copics and prismacolor pencils and gel pen
