Happy Father's Day!

Good Evening!

Hope you've had a nice Father's Day!

I've had a great weekend, yesterday we took Ben to the Grand Theatre to see Thomas the Tank. It was much better than I thought it was going to be and Ben really enjoyed it. Today we went on a steam train ride with the in-laws then to see my Dad where we had a buffet tea and watched Paul on DVD.

Here's a card I made for my Dad, I bought the Trophy pre-cut card from Hobbycraft but tried to think outside the box so instead of using the shape just as a card blank I turned it into a Twisted Easel (sorry!!)

I had a go at making a rosette which turned out quite good for my first attempt and added some ribbon to the handles. The paper is Basic Grey Oliver with rub-ons and pearls from my stash.

I've made two more Father's Day cards - for my FIL which I forgot to photograph (oooppss!) and the other for my hubby which I'll post later in the week.

Right off to watch a bit of TV, but have to get my thinking cap on as it's Ben's 3rd Birthday on the 28th and need to make a card for that. I want to include his age and 'Son' on it somewhere and as I mentioned earlier he's into superhero's at the mo, I think I might have to break open TGF's Amazing Duo again!

Enjoy the rest of your evening


Oh I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges :
