Fathers Day Card

Hello Everyone!

How are you all?

Sorry I haven't been around recently, I have been a busy girl the past couple of weeks. I'm at my final hurdle now with only 500 words to go of my last assignment then my days off will really be DAYS OFF!!

I have decided to post this card early, I was going to come back when my final assignment was finished but I would like to enter this card into Di's Snippets Challenge as the brown card used was made from snippets of leftover card.

After my recent post I finally decided on the image I wanted to use for this card and that was Mo's Digital Pencil! I just love Mo's images and will definitely be investing in some more of those in the future, it was so fun to colour too.

Aside from this being the first card I have made using a digi-stamp, I have done my first ever piece of paper piecing too! I was really pleased with the results and will doing this again soon.


- 6x6 craftwork cards scalloped edge card blank
- Papers were a free download from online (unknown author unfortunately)
- HOTP soft nostalgia backing papers (snippets)
- Mo's digital pencil stamp Big Guy Grilling coloured with Promarkers
- Sentiment created on word

I would like to enter this card in to the following challenges:

Thanks for looking,
It's great to be back blogging again

Hi Laura, your father is going to love this! Fabulous colors, great design and you've done a wonderful job of the piecing.
OOO girl you are nearly to the finish line! You wont know what to do with yourself with all that free time.
PS It's still not here. Wonder if a postal worker is doing the backstroke carrying it across the pond? LOL I'll let you know the moment it arrives.

Hi Laura

You found your BBQ digi image in the end then!

Great choice and great finished card too.

Fabulous use of your snippets! I wonder if we will be allowed a summer BBQ in the snippet playground? LOL!!

Well done on nearly completing your assignment .. .. what a sense of relief it will be to you when that is done and dusted.

Love Jules xx

Brilliant card, and you'll be hooked on paper piecing now :) It's a perfect Fathers Day card - now you need to add the smell of singed sausages and burgers to it!

Good luck with the last run towards the end of your studies.
