No:1 Dad

Well it's Friday and this week has flown by for me although I am struggling to see how and why it did!?! I hope it's not an old age thing creeping up too quickly but you never know.

This on the Polka Doodles Challenge blog we were asked to make something for Dad. So this is my 1st of many cards I need to make with Fathers Day looming . . . ooohhh should add that I don't have loads of Dad's but have been asked to make loads of different Dad themed cards . . . phew my Mum will now breathe a sigh of relief! I have used the fab Polkadoodles Father/Family download and love the backing papers as there are so versatile. Simple mat and layering techniques from me this week (nothing fancy), hand cut stars, punched hearts, some buttons and twine. The "Dad"was made using up old Letraset rub on letters.

Don't forget the POLKA DOODLES BLOG HOP doesn't end until SUNDAY, so you still have time to enter. All the details can be found at the top of my blog.

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

C.R.A.F.T - Father's Day
Craft Us Crazy - male themed
Paper Play - Father's Day
Sisterhood of Crafters - Celebrating Dad
Delicious Doodles - Father's Day

Have a great Friday and up and coming weekend everyone,
