Its so nice to see some sunshine. Today is a sad day for me and my family, as its a whole year since my Dad passed away from cancer. I still can't believe that a year has passed by so quickly and I'd like to thank all my friends and family for their ongoing support - you're all wonderful!
With this in mind I was pleased to see a "card for a man or boy challenge" over at Allsorts this week....this card is for my Dad...
This cheeky little chappie reminds me of my Dad quite a bit....althought the image has a lot more hair than Dad had!! Dad was a complete handy man....complete with lots of tools! There wasn't anything he wouldn't try and fix himself!
I've spent this morning with my mum and my sister and her hubby at Wisley Gardens, a beautiful place that we visited with Dad when he was well. We wandered around the gardens and bought lots of plants between us.
After this I've had some time to myself, so I did what makes me happiest....I baked some cupcakes and made some cards!! Here is my next card...
I'm pleased with how this card turned out, the LOVT image is really cute and these papers are lovely new ones that I got free with a magazine. I've added a punched flower and a little glitter. I'd like to enter this card in the following challenge:
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Card for Mum
DYSU - use a flower
Lili's Little Fairies - your favourite craft tool (my flower punch)
I haven't got any olympic or jubliee inspired craft items in my stash......so I decided to go with the colours of the Union Jack....red, white and blue.....these are colours we're going to see a lot of this summer!! I also decided to add a cup of tea.....after all...what can be more British than a cup of tea??
Pop by all the blogs mentioned to see all the gorgeous DT cards that have been created for us this week!
