Happy Fathers Day

Is it me, or is Fathers day late this year....?

Enough of that, lets get on with showing the cards that have been exchanged today. Firstly i made two cards on the same theme with very different looks for my Dad, and Kev's Dad. It's amazing how just using different papers and colours produces a totally different feel to the card. As ever i used scraps from my scraps drawer to make these (not that I'm a miser, but if i don't use up these its i will never be able to close the drawer!!!)

Both cards use stamps, the clock is a really useful one i got from Stampin' Up, the sentiment is from this months Unity kit of the month. The first card uses a cuttlebug embossing folder (numbers) to back the stamped image, the second some very old K&Co papers. I did some heat embossing on both cards, not done this for a while... always fun!

Now enough for my cards, here are the best cards of the day, the ones the children made. It was so nice this morning as all 3 of them piled into bed with us (a bit of a squeeze now as the girls are both effectively adults!) I helped Harry make breakfast in bed for Kev, and he had great fun opening his cards and pressies. Hannah's card includes a pic of Kev's hero Ray Mears, but inside a very cheeky stamped message ('Let's hang out') refers to a very rude, and funny, sketch we had seen Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer perform involving 'Ray'.

Katie made her dad a card that you will understand if you saw this LO on the DoCrafts site a whileback (am amazed i didn't include it on my blog!).... love the paper pieced badger (made all by herself) and the moving arms.

Harry made a shirt and tie card with a very random theme of lumberjacks drawn on the front. the best bit were the TWO chainsaws drawn on the back. He was very pleased with his efforts!!

So Happy Fathers Day to all dads, we are off to the natural habitat of dads later today..... a barbecue at my sisters house!
