Tow-Tally The Best Dad!

Hi lovely blogging buddies....

Today it's the fabulous new release from Whimsie Doodles, and I'm here to show you yet another CAS card I made - I used 'Tow-Tally' - such a perfect image for Father's Day which is getting close of course!  I promise you a more fancy card soon - I just seem to be falling into doing this simple style.... and as I've been struggling to keep my eyes open since we got back from our hols...  just what I needed!

Card Recipe:
Image - Whimsie Doodles Tow-Tally

Well I'm back from my jollies..... we had a wonderful time as Kefalonia is such a fabulous place!  It's the fourth time we've been to the hotel we stayed at - so it's like our home from home!  And you should see the food there.......  I jumped on the scales when we got home, and was pleasantly surprised to find I'd actually lost 1 lb!  There's quite a bit of walking up and down hill at the hotel as it's built on a cliff..  I can only think I walked off the calories!  Here's a few pics that show how beautiful the place is... (you can stop reading now if you get bored easily! But if you want to see the photos larger, just click on the first then scroll forward)

Argostoli Harbour 
Turtles in the harbour (that are up to 100 years old!) 

 Of course, I had to find THIS shop - Igot some lovely lace trimmings!
A Shirley Valentine place to sit and have a glass or two.. 
A handsome man (mine!) at Sami 
A handsome man (not mine!) serving my cocktails on the beach! 
A gorgeously decorated cafe in Argostoli! 
Double-chin hiding pose.. 
The view from our bungalow balcony...

And THEN....... we came home to glorious colours like this in our garden..

OK... enough already... Sorry if I got boring!

Have a lovely day - and thanks for stopping by and saying hello...

Big hugs and Happy Crafting..

  12. Oh, that sunshine and blue sea just looks gorgeous but I am please you did bring back some of that sun for us as requested!

    Your card is fab...not your most favourite colours and masculine too but still has that awesome Christine style which I love :-)

    I'm the opposite to you at the moment as I feel like I need to do more simple cards because much as I love doing the fussy and fancy ones, they just take sooooo long!

    Big hugs, Kat xx

  13. This is a great guy card Christine and I love the simplicity of it. It's not simple though... those gorgeous papers and your fab colouring have made this a fab card.
    Love your holiday pics, gorgeous scenery and I do that 'hide the double chin pose' all the time...hahahhaha... Looks like you had a fab time though and good on ya... who loses a lb while holidaying?

  14. Nowt wrong with simple missus! It's my mantra, if it ain't simple, I don't do it, rofl!! Love the tow truck and bold colours, that's just fab. So pleased to see that you had a super holiday - five weeks and counting..... Hugs Tired Squirrel xx
