Fathers Day

Morning all I'm so glad I get to schedule my blog posts as no doubt today I will be an emotional wreck. I was 'Manilowed' at the O2 last night and will probably be good for nothing for a few days lol.

It's mid challenge time over at the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog and all you need to do is 'use a die cut' either from your electronic or manual cutting machine. I'm a bit of a technical numpty and no longer possess an electric machine so had to dive into my basket of dies........

For the main image on my Dad's 'Father's Day' card I used the wonderful Wesley from Cherryblossom Lane collection.

I coloured him up with my Lyra pencils, adding some glossy accents to his eyes & nose, The backing paper is from the same collection and I added faux stitching around the edge. My die cut is the bunting and lettering across the top. I couldn't think what other embellishments to add. My dad loves his allotment and Wesley had that kind of feel so I decided to make some carrots. They are just coloured, shaped, pearlised pieces of card with some green threads sprouting from the top.
