Dad You Are Amazing

Happy Tuesday everyone!

It's a lovely day here in Norfolk.

I'm off out into the garden this afternoon, got some fencing to finish painting, then I'm going to paint my new chicken coop. It's going to be painted in Sea Grass. A lovely coastal coloured paint from Cuprinol. Perfect for a cottage garden, I'm sure my girls (getting them in a couple of weeks or so - excited is not the word) are going to be very impressed. I'll post some piccies when they are settled.

Any hoo...todays post is the card I did for my dad for Father's Day.

Cool or what????

What you need...

Stamps: Picture It - Avery Elle; Chit Chat, Word Up, A Little Lovin - Paper Smooches
Card Stock: bright pink, lime, aqua, white, black
Ink pad: Onyx Black - Versafine
Promarkers: Amber, Cerise, Lime Twist, Oasis, Pink Mittens
Baker's twine: blue, pink, orange
Button: lime green

What you do...

Stamp the Polaroid frame, label, rabbit and sticky tapes three times onto white card. Colour in and cut out. Attach the rabbits to the reverse of the frames at different angles and trim any excess. Back each frame with a piece of coloured card and apply the labels.

Create a small pair of glasses and a mustache from black card and fix to two of the rabbits. Tie three lengths of twine around the bottom third of a 15cm square blank, thread through the button and tie.

Stamp the sentiment in the bottom right corner, arrange and adhere the photos around it. Finish by attaching the sticky tapes to the photos.

Ha! I think this card is so funny. My dad loved it anyway, it's a bit daft, just like him. No offence dad! Mind you, the fruit never falls far from the tree.

Hope you all liked my latest little creation, I will be back soon. Until then, stay out of trouble! xxxx
