Father's Day card

Thank goodness for all those challenges out there encouraging you to make a man's card this week! I've still got my own dad's to do, but at least I've managed to make my father-in-law, Bill's....


My in-laws owned Labradors but their last one died a few years back. I know Bill misses them and now they love it when we bring up our two Yellow Labradors for him to cuddle and lord over, lol!! I thought The Greeting Farm dog image looked suitably cute enough to melt his heart!


As you can see, I'm keeping up my resolve to improve the inside of my cards. I could never be bothered before, but it only takes a couple of minutes more to cut and glue in a few left over scraps and I've now got a stock of various Nestability labels that are perfect to stamp on the sentiment on. Much more professional!

I am entering this card into three challenges Club Anya Saturday Sketch #22, Totally Gorjuss For the Boys, Anyone for Anya Only Men Allowed and Cupcake Craft Challenges One for the Boys. Phew! I don't think I've entered so many challenges in one go!

Now to make my own daddy's card...


Papers/cardstock: white hammered cardstock, DCWV Pet Stack
Stamps: TGF Home Sweet Home, CC Designs sentiments
Mediums: Copic Ciaos
Accents: BasicGrey and My Minds Eye buttons
Tools: Nestabilities circle dies and Label One die
