Here's another Father's Day card...

The image is and older one, by Lili of the Valley and is called Armchair Bear.
I have loads of stamps that I don't ink up nowadays as I use digital images more and more, but it's always nice to get inky from time to time, and whilst going through my collection I was reminded how fab many of them are, I will have to start using them again :)

The layout i've used here is an old one, designed by myself from my Sketch Saturday days. You can find all of my sketches HERE.
This is sketch #203. Funnily enough, I used the same image for my SSDT card back then too! I only noticed this just now, when I went to the SS blog to grab the link. lol.
The papers are from 2 pads, My Mind's Eye, Stella & Rose, Gertie; and Basic Grey, Basic Kraft.
Spookily, I also used papers from these 2 pads on the SS card too!
(i'm starting to scare myself now)
The sentiment is computer generated, and I finished the card this time by adding some card candy.
