Father's Day at Anything Goes..

Hi Girls

Firstly, isn't it lovely to see the sunshine??!!

I'm still trying to catch up with myself...  but managed to get this done for the Father's Day Challenge at Anything Goes...  I couldn't resist this little DigiStamp Boutique superhero...  he was such fun to colour!

I coloured him with copics and promarkers ... then cut him out and mounted him on some white card run through a chevron embossing folder.  The papers are various bits I had lying around..   I diecut some letters from the Tim Holtz Typeset die.... they do look a bit wobbly... but in actual fact they are supposed to be like that... his typical grunge look!

And here's me being crept up on by my lovely OH with camera in hand while I was finishing off the card in the sunshine... can you see my concentration?? LOL!

I'm dedicating this card to MY dad...  who passed away in 1980...  and to my girls' dad - my late husband...  who passed away in 2007...  both very much missed and thought of often.

Why don't you pop over to the challenge blog HERE and see what my teamies have come up with for more inspiration.  And don't forget, you can find lots of lovely crafty goodies at Lynn's shop - the Craft Den in Sheffield... and online too.

Big Hugs and Happy Crafting

  15. Hi Christine, thanks for your thoughts on the Craft den blog. Life is a bit os a trial at the mo, but have at last managed to upload my Father's Day card. Yours is great fun a real superhero. Great colouring and yes....no pink!! I love your dedication for this card and wish I had done the same, especially as Father's day falls on my Dad's birthday this year and it will be 18 yrs ago he passed away. Think I will go back and edit my blog. Thanks for the prompt!! Hope you are keeping well.
    Hugs Carol xx
