Happy Father's Day


As it's Fathers Day in the UK on Sunday I thought I would use my new purchase to make this. I have used images and papers from a CD Rom by Flower Soft called Happy Families. The images were just so cute I had to get it but I don't have any flower soft!!! Maybe that will have to wait, it is very effective but I have a long wishlist already!!....don't we all.

Here is a wonky view.............


......................which, stangley enough, looks better this way!

I used the sketch at Moving Along With the Times from Hazel...........
By the way I am typing this whilst England are playing Algeria and making hard work of it.........dare I say as usual!! I have turned over to watch something else because I have got to the point where I can't bare to watch. How sad is that.

Any how here are the other challenges I am entering with this card..............

Creative Inspirations, A Crafty Little Place, Cupcake Craft Challenge- all have the theme "One for the Boys",

Pear Tree Designs, Magical Crafts Fortnightly and Polka Doodles all have a Father's Day/Male theme and

Raise the Bar want to see something for "A Special Guy".

Come on England........................please!

Not a wonky view at all! In fact, it looks great and shows off so much of the dimension. This layout is fun and works perfectly with the sketch! Wonderful job with the images, and btw, I know what you mean about the wish list. lol! But you'll enjoy FS when you get it. ;) Great job, thank you so much for joining us in our Guys challenge at ACLP!
