Thought I'd better . . .

. . . . make a "Father's Day" card as the day is looming around the corner ! I wanted to do something a little different and used a fab "Funky Fairy" digi image. However, I printed her out a wee bit bigger than I had first thought, so had to rethink my card shape. Finally decided on a stair card (think that's the correct name for them?)

Papers: Funky Fairy's "Hope" kit
Digi image: Funky Fairy
Coloured with my Promarkers

Did you notice that I have squished the corner on the mount that the "Funky Fairy" stands and can't remember how, when, why or where this happened. I have obviously made good that corner now!

I also decorated the back but forgot to take a photo - whoops - needed a place to write my message. Just hope that dadd-i-kins likes the card now - I like to remind every now & then that I was young once!

Hope everyone is well and going for my long overdue blog hop tonight. Apologies to the fab girlies over at ICS but I ran out of time this week to join in the challenge but I promise to definitely join in next week (new sketch tomorrow . . . yippee!).

Take care,

Great Card mama! I've never tried a stair card yet. I'm wimpy wimpy and lazy lazy.

I've got to getback on the challenge wagon myself. I feel like I've been slacking off lately...

Love the stair aspect -how creative is that. I love how some of the best cards arise out of a "mistake" -like your image being bigger than you originally meant.
I have finally posted a couple of pics of Audrey II -the man-eating plant, if you still want to take a look. I have been putting in12+ hour days at the theatre since I can't remember when and am horrified to see I have not blogged for over a week!
Has your art week happened now?
Lots of love,
