Morning All, the end of a lovely half term break......if you're a duck! Actually that's not quite true, I've had my lovely daughter Emma home for a visit and she and her sister and I have had some fun times including a day in London mooching around Camden, our first visit there but definitely not the last. Then a walk up the Mall to see the aftermath of the Jubilee celebrations which was rewarded with a glimpse of the Queen as she drove back to the Palace after lunch. Actually I lie, Emma and Rachael who are both quite tall saw the Queen I saw the tip of the pennant on her car!
Anyway on to the new challenge at the Cardmadfairy which is linked to the upcoming Fathers Day celebration. So a card for Dad or a male. Now when I make cards for Jenni's challenge, because I rarely sell them, I try to make sure I can use them for myself. My wonderful father died 29 years ago so I have no need for a card for him but I do have a very musical family so a card featuring Zac, who you can find here, will be suitable for at least 4 of them!
I used the sketch at cardabilities as a starting point and because it features so many layers and stripes I decided to chop up the image for a change. I used a set of papers I have had for at least 4 years plus some Basic Grey and Tim Holtz and I made the little star buttons out of shrink plastic. I can't wait to see all the wonderful creations by all the amazing crafters out there.
