Happy Father's Day

Hi everyone,

Well ~ a HUGE thank you to all of you that left such lovely and kind comments on my last post about Sorrell ~ she is continuing to do well and is back to her old self, the only one thing I have noticed is when I was grooming her last weekend ~ she has about three or four little scabby patches here and there on her skin ~ very strange, I have decided to leave well alone having investigated one of them and found it to be quite clean?

Ever since that dreadful weekend I have been playing catch up with my chores and that has left little time for playing with my crafty goodies.  But, it was Father's Day here in the UK last Sunday and I thought I would show you the card I made for my Dad.


I kept the card quite simple as the image is quite a large one and sort of took the whole thing over!

CARD RECIPE

Image: Docrafts 'Wellington' 8" x 8" Clear Stamp Set coloured with Copics
Cardstock: Blue ~ Papertrey Ink 'Enchanted Evening' ~ Red ~ From stash
Nestabilities: Grand Ovals
Sentiment: From the same Wellington stamp set
Josy Rose Nail Heads

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Digistamps4joy ~ For the Men in our Lives
Crafting for all Seasons ~ One for the Guys
The Sisterhood of Crafters ~ Man or Boy

Well thats' all for today ~ it has just started raining here, which would be about right as Hubby has Friday and Monday off!

Thank you all for stopping by and for any much appreciated comments you may make.

Love

Soooo pleased to hear Sorrel is back to her old self!!! They seem to bounce back very quickly once they have the right care don't they. Glad it all worked out okay in the end.

Lovely card and I agree, keeping it simple has kept the image as the main feature, love your colouring/shading.

Gorgeous card Bev, I love the image. Thank you for your comment on my card comparison post. Shame about the Paperterie - they could potentially be losing a lot of business! xx
