Who stole that week!!

Good morning all

Well we're back to the rain again here - its absolutely tipping down here this morning and as I write this post I can't hear myself think because the rain is hitting the roof of our conservatory so loudly - you can hear it through the whole house!

I've got here by luck rather than good management this week - just when I was congratulating myself on my organisation skills lol.  I'm on the countdown to my hollies next week when I will be away for 4 weeks and I'm busy getting my DT cards sorted out and posts posted.  I usually do my DT comments in 2 visits  - one a couple of days into the start of the challenge and the other last thing so that I can catch any last minute entries.  I called into MAWTT last night to do my last minutes and shock horror!! - it wasn't a team A week - the good thing was I had no comments to do - the shock horror was I had a card to make for today EEEK!!   Now I'm not pointing the finger here but someone has definitely stolen a week somewhere - you know who you are and I'll be round to have a quiet word with you later!!!

Sooo.... onto the business in hand - challenge day at Moving Along With The Times.  This is going to be the last challenge for a while - we're having the whole summer off - people are busy, mojos need to be recharged and Hazel our big boss lady decided that it was a good idea just to break for the summer and come back when we've al got over the sun stroke and jet lag!!!

We're using a fun easy- peasy sketch for our challenge this week - I'm getting to love sketch challenges - it gives my brain a bit of a break when it comes to the idea thing and we can all do with that from time to time.

I decided to make a fathers day card for my son to give to his Dad, we're going to be away for fathers day so thought I'd give it a bit of a hoiday theme - then I remembered Reg Butterthwaite - isn't he just fab!! - I downloaded him a while ago from Justinklined - they have some fabulously funny men digis if you're looking for anything for fathers day - take a peek here

and here's the easy peasy sketch

you've got plenty of space for any embellies you want to use - i just kept mine fairly plain - it being a man thing!!

Here's what I did.....

Image - Reg Butterthwaite from just Inklined 
Papers were bought at TK Max for £1.99 -by Crate paper? never hear of this designer but they're a sort of travel theme called Story Teller
sentiment - part of the film strip stamp set from whimsy stamps
Bunting Die- from Whimsy stamps
Stars die - marrianne dies
Silver mirri - fom very old stash when we all mounted everything on mirri!
Letters punched with a punch bought from QVC a verrrry long time ago!

We'd love to see you at MAWTT for our last challenge before summer - I think that's what summers waiting for - when MAWTT takes a break - Summer begins - don't quote me on that one lol!!
