Cards for Dad .......

I have been very good this year and made two Fathers Day cards, usually I would buy them, as most of my stamps are cute or girly, not really suitable for mens cards.  Now I have my Stampin' Up! stamps, I have so many stamps that are perfect for many different occasions.

I do addmit this was a very last minute card, I think it was almost 12.30am when I finished this one!!!  I have made an origami shirt with a ribbon tie that Julie kindly sent me the tutorial for, you can see the card Julie made here.  Seeing the card made of ties that Sarah posted last night gave me this inspiration for my card.  I have used theA to Z stamp for the background, the colours are Taken with Teal and Soft Suede. the paper for the shirt is from the sweet pea stack and the greeting is from the Best Wishes & More set.

Lucy was pleased to find this card ready for her to give this morning as she said it was just like what Dad goes to work in!!???

Fortunately I made this card a few weeks ago!!!  This card has been made with the Schoolbook Serif alphabet stamp set and the fantastic All in theFamily set, which has so many possibilities, you can even add the family pet!!! The colours are Real Red and Tempting Turquoise, I coloured the "Lucy & Philip" in with my stampin Write markers.

It has been slightly warmer today, but certainly not the kind of day you would sit out in the garden, its the dreaded North Sea coast that inflicts us with cold winds and thick cloud!!  Hope you have had a lovely weekend and enjoyed some sunshine!!!
