Happy Father's Day

I was well aware that Father's Day fell today, so why do I always leave things until the very last minute?  Today's card is the one I made (this morning) for my Dad.   I think my problem at the moment is that I get very easily distracted and, as soon as there is a glimmer of sunshine, I am out in the garden tidying and planting.  We have to make the most of every bit of sunshine here in the UK especially after days of rain like this past week.

The image is one of my favourite "man" images and is Jim with Beer from Digi Stamp Boutique.  I've coloured it with pro markers and used some favourite "man" paper too.  It is from the Persimmon collection from PaperMania.  I've just realised that, yet again, I have used my scallop circle dies - they are my favourites though.  Having just purchased 3 new packs of Nestabilities this week, I must make more of an effort to use some of my other dies too!

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Little Claire's - Cards for Men
Paper Creator's - For the Men
Sketch Saturday - I used their sketch
Glitter Geeks - Father's Day
Wags 'n Whiskers - Masculine
Digi Stamp boutique - June competition

Thanks for looking today - I'll try not to leave it a whole week again until I make my next post!
