Special Dad

Hi fellow bloggers, I hope you are all having a nice weekend:) I have been having a very productive crafting few days..... I had to finish off my projects to send into The Hobby House semi final design team call, which  are supposed to be there for Tuesday .... so off I toddled up to our local Post Office and guess what!!! they decided to close 1 hour earlier than they should..... how annoying, not even a note on the door to apologise:( ...  (I hope to share these projects with you next week!) 
So I came home and made a 'gents' card!!!! No pink!, no lace, but I still couldn't resist a little bit of bling:) I have made the card for my dad for Fathers Day...... thought I had better try and be a bit more organised now that I have DT projects to complete and as I have been promising myself to make a few more male cards, this was the perfect opportunity!

  • The card is 8x8
  • The image is from LOTV Vintage Boys - Sketch pad set 1. I have coloured the image in using Copics.
  • The papers are Nitwit Collection - Petal Fresh. Cardstock is Core'dinations
  • Spellbinder dies - Die-D-lites Poppy Patch and Whimsical Tree.  Labels Twenty Eight
  • Marianne Design creatables - Grass, Bird, and bird house
  • Magnolia Dohickeys - Lovely Fence
  • Letters stamps - my stash
  • Stickles glitter - Lime green
  • Pearl brads and gems -The Hobby House
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
