Since I'm behind with everything...

I thought I'll try and get ahead with at least ONE card and make something for Fathers Day!! It's a digi day at Stamp Something and I'm using an image from A Day For Daisies.
The colouring is a combination of Copics and Prismas.I struggled a bit with colouring that image, not even sure why. I'll probably just have to find my colouring mojo again.
The bacground paper is from October Afternoon. The crown brads have been sitting in my stash forever and I just got that lush silk ribbon from wonderful Ann who was kind enough to flog off some of her abundance.
Everything is matted on kraft card and then paper pierced. It's a very simple card but I must say I like it. Hopefully hubby will too.

The challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - use some old stash
Moving Along With The Times (3 entries) – use old stash along with new stash
Paper Play (2 entries) – clean and simple
Bunny Zoe's Crafts (2nd monday) - Sparkle and shine
Paper Sundaes (3 entries) - Something New
Pile It On - Brand spanking new

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!!
Hugs

This is adorable - and I love the colors! If hubby doesn't like it then send it my way! :D (Although, looks like he's only got 8 fingers too! LOL!)

Along the lines of the new Sugar Nellie stamps, I've noticed a lack of Magnolia cards on your blog. :D I finally gave into peer pressure but I got my say in the matter with something very taboo... a nose and mouth! LOL!

I'm so glad you're back in action and healthy again - you were missed! :D
