Father's Day


Today I have a card that I've made for my father in law for Father's Day on 21 June.

I've used Sugar Nellies Home Grown "Where's Mine" Stamp, which I have coloured using my Copics. I distressed the edges using Tim Holtz Distess Ink in Faded Jeans.

The papers and sentiment are from a selection I have on my computer, although unfortunately I don't know where they are originally from.

The "Dad" charm is from my stash, as are the brads.

I am going to enter it for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge "Fabulous Fathers!".

Thanks for dropping by and leaving your comments, they are always gratefully received.

Lovely card Penni and such a cute image. I was thinking of getting this stamp, just haven't got round to it yet, but I love how you've colored it. Love the My Hero sentiment and the Dad charm hanging there, it adds a nice touch to it.
