Father's Day

Is it Sunday already? Blimey, where did that week go? I'll have Saturday again please as that passed me by in a blur, before you know it it'll be Monday again and back to work we go. It's Father's Day next Sunday here in the UK, are you ready for that? You can make a start by creating a card for our Father's Day challenge, and to help you create we have a freebie bundle you can use in conjunction with your Charmed digi's, you can find details of that over at Dottie's World. Please note that the free bundle is ONLY for people who want to enter our challenge.



I haven't got my wonderful dad with me anymore so I created a card from my two girls to give to their dad.

I merged three images from our George collections, created a frame and tags (which I am giving away for free) and layered on various papers and cardstock. I wanted this card to "shine" so added acrylic dewdrops all around and fine glitter on glossy accent on my corners. The loop PATP border is from Martha Stewart punches. The green paper is Bo Bunny, it's the reverse side of Calypso Bloom .


My sentiment inside the card is also in the free bundle, plus I added one for a single child (as in "my dad" and not "our dad").




I used Glossy accent to make the tags pop, you can see that better here:

My three George images were coloured with Copic markers. Unfortunately I didn't let the printer ink dry long enough and it got a little smudged around runner George's eye, where the ink is most intensive. I like to leave it at least an hour, or overnight if possible; that's why I try to have a stack of images already printed that I can use. As I was creating the merged image yesterday especially for the challenge I didn't have time for that.

I hope you are able to join our Father's day challenge this week, please pop over and see what the team has created for your inspiration. Have a great Sunday and thanks for stopping by :-)
