For Father's Day

Happy Monday everyone.
Here is the card that I gave to my Dad yesterday...

I have had this image, The Big One by Stitchy Bear for quite a while, and have been meaning to use it for a card for my Dad since he loved to fish when he was younger.
I've teamed it up with papers from Kanban's Male Backgrounds CD, using the checked pattern to make a rosette for my embellishment.
The 'world's best dad' stamp is from Stamps Away, though I'm not sure if they are still in business.
The other sentiment at the bottom of the card is by Stampin Up, from the 'Bring on the Cake' stamp set, then I replaced the 'w' of wishing with the f.
The number 1 die is from Die-namics 'by the number' set.

I'm entering this card at:
Cardz 4 Guyz - father's day

Sentimental Sundays - father's day / manly

Next up is the card I made for my Son to give my Hubby...

I've used this fab image from DigiStamp Boutique, it's from a set called New Baby Animals. After colouring with promarkers, I did a bit of fussy cutting.
The backing paper is by Prima, from their 'Forever Young' pad.
I've used some Hunkydory scrabble letter card tiles and the ampersand die from Die-namics 'by the letter' set.

I'm entering this card at:
DigiStamp Boutique - monthly competition for June

  1. Love how you changed the W to a F! Such a great image and layout.
    Thanks for sharing with us at Cardz4Guyz. :).

  2. Now that is a fab idea of changing the wishing to fishing. wonder if it will work on any other words! Lol. I'm pretty sure that is the actual size of most fish they catch when they come with a whopper of a tale. Internet went on the blink again last night but behaving itself this morning so all jobs are on hold whilst I do a spot of ccatching up. hugs Mrs A.
