Happy Fathers Day..

Happy Fathers Day to my Dad and of course my Husband. Although it seems this year we will not be spending it together as a family. My husband left right early this morning to go and watch the Motor GP at Silverstone. Me, I am Demoing at the Cardmaking and Scrapbooking Fayre at Needham Market, with my downline Clare and my son has a cricket match.

Because Hubby is not around much today, we gave him his presents and card last night. Here is the card I made for DS to give. I thought it was a good idea to do it in England colours, Red, White and Blue, but after the way the team played on friday, perhaps it wasn't such a good idea. LOL

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Occasional Greetings
Card: Real Red, Whisper White, Night of Navy
Ink: Night of navy, Real Red
Accessories: Gold Brads, Word Window Punch

Here is the card I made for my Dad.

I have had this stamp set for ages, but not used it much, don't ask me why, because it is georgous.  I decided to give it a bit of a grunge/antique look, and blended ink around the image before stamping the beautiful fern image.  layering it onto black card made it pop.  I decided to crack open the Sweet Pea Designer Paper that arrived a couple of days ago.  There are so many beautiful papers in this stack, I had a hard job choosing which to use. I decided on one with Green, yellow and Turquoise colours in it.

Stamps: Touch of Nature, Occasional Greetings
Ink: Old Olive, Creamy Caramel, So Saffron
Card: So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black
Accessories: Word Window Punch

Well, I hope you have had a great day celebrating. I will be back tomorrow with a post about the fayre, so do pop back and see what we got up to.

I love the way you've split up the sentiment - great idea. Hope you've all enjoyed your separate days out.
