happy fathers day

today i am showing the card i made for my father , using the great sketch on FRIDAY SKETCHERS.
used some paper found in my paper cupboard, image from my friend kristin, nestabilities ovals, ribbon and stickers from my stash.
don`t know about you but i am finding making these father day cards really difficult ~not enough male stamps in my stash!! ( done the football etc before) .. still only one more to make!!
here is this cute chap close~up ( my father always wears a tie)

well over cast here today ~washing machine on ~ may not dry outside today!! ~hey ho!! hope you have better weather than us!! enjoy your weekend what ever you are doing xx

A super Father's Day card!!! I love all the fabulous design elements, and the image is too cute:o) Like you, I always have difficulty creating male cards due to having so few "for the guys" stamps.

I also wanted you to know that there is something for you on my blog. Thank you for your wonderful friendship!!!
