It's Father's Day at Sweet Stampin...

Good morning sweet stampers and my scheduled post.  although I am off work it's the Gala Day today...yeeha so it's a long one and there might be some drink involved later!  so I'm off to get ready!!

This weeks challenge over at Sweet Stampin is "Father's Day" boy/men cards aren't my favourite but they have got to be done so here we are.

This week we are sponsored by Cuddly Buddly and our monthly sponsor The Ribbon pop over and check out my teamies creations.

For my card I have used papers from Echo Park - A Perfect Summer, the image is from Mo Manning called Fishing which I coloured with copics, I added a sentiment and a little fishy charm.  The sun was cut using a daisy sizzlits die...just chopped the ends of the petals to make it look more like rays!!  I attached the sun to a cloud...oops...and doodled!

This is my favoritest Father's Day card that I've ever seen in my life..and I've been living a long time. This is a wonderful card. Everything about it is fabulous and blends 150% perfect. From the papers to the image to the embellishments...and your coloring is gorgeous. It looks more like a painting I would buy for my house than a card. Fabulous card. --Gail
