Good Monday morning! I'm squeezing in a bit of blogging while Charlotte is snoozing and Aimee is glued to the cartoons on TV. I've got 2 cards to show you today! The first one is a fathers day card for my Dad, following the challenge over at the new monthly Challenge blog Creatalicious Challenges to use brown and metal when making something for Dad. Here in Australia, Fathers Day is the first Sunday in September. I was born on fathers day in 1984 and every year I hear "you were the best thing any Dad could ask for" lol .Now that I've made a card I just have to think of something to get him. He has just bought a new car so maybe some seat covers if he hasn't bought any before then. My Dad is a tad forgetful on occasion, so I thought this sentiment was suitable and still meaningful.
I've used 2 antique gold heart shaped brads, 8 silver eyelets and a 'made with love' heart shaped charm. The brown paper is from Stampin' up. The senitment reads "The next best thing to knowing someting, is to know here to find it - Samuel Johnson"
My second card also started out as a fathers day card, this time for John, but I just dont know now. I think I'll try and make something else, and this will be my 'back-up' if I cant make anything I like better lol. And I'm worried he will think this one is a bit girly so I might see if I can find a stamp on Thursday maybe fishing or something. I followed the sketch over at Carols Sketch Fun and her fab new sketches are posted every fortnight.
Everything for this card comes from my stash, and I've used my swiss dots embossing folder and a 'made with love' charm on this one too. The senitment reads "It is not how much you do, but how much Love you put into the doing that matters - Mother Teresa"
Thanks or stopping by, and as always I would love to hear what you think! Happy blogging xx
