Sweet Surprise For Dad



I've made this card for a few challenges but I hummed and hawed over using the ribbon and the flower simply because it's for a Dad. Then I thought well, men like flowers "don't they".

I have stuck to masculine colours though!! and kept the design to a minimum. Oh well, diddly Ho! it was made with love for one of my friends little boys (he's only 3) and he actually looks like the little fellow in the image. I'm sure his Daddy will love it.

I bought this gorgeous stamp a few weeks ago from Jude, this is the first opportunity I've had to ink him up and colour him. He is just adorable with his little dicky bow and his patches.

I am entering him into the following challenges:

1. Belles 'n' Whistles Challenge:
They are looking for flowers

2. Simon Says Challenge: Are looking for a Fathers Day/Male card this week.

3. Crafts and Me Challenge: Would like to see distressing, I've torn my DP

4. One Stitch at a Time Challenge: Have a theme this week of Boys to Men. A project for the man in your life, whether it be a Son, Dad, Boyfriend, Grandad etc.


Have a wonderful day everyone.
