For Dad!

Hi and I hope that the sun is shining for you? It's definitely not here lol! It's been a busy few days - back to routine next week I hope when half term is over. I love having the school breaks but any routines (and spare time) seems to disappear!
Anyway, today's card is another prepared for forthcoming Fathers' Day - and I love this LOTV image

The colours look quite pale in my photo - but I'm sure they're a bit stronger in 'real life' lol! 

I've coloured the image with promarkers and distressed the edges. 
The backing papers are American Crafts and K&Co, with a little added twine and Marianne die of ivy leaves.  The 'Dad' wording is from Sizzix transfers and the sentiment stamp is a Whimsy one, with the Whimsy ticket die - just love that set! 
Thought that wording was quite nice for a special dad! 

I'm entering this in the following challenges :-
C.RA.F.T. Challenge - male card
Lilis Little Fairies - one for the boys
PennysPaperCraftyChallenge - I love you dad
ThePoodlesParlour - Fathers' Day

I'm hoping to get some crafting time this weekend - got a birthday and wedding card to make! 
But before I go I just thought I'd share another couple of cards made for the Cats Protection open day with the Joanna Sheen Furry Friends cd

Just love that cat's expression! Looks about as happy as our cat! I added sentiments done on the computer and Disney die cut & emboss clown hats with added gems!

And isn't this one a little cutie? So cuddleable! The backing papers are Nitwit ones with added button, ribbon, pearls & gems from stash and the sentiment from LOTV.
Hope you like them.
Back soon, Kim x
