The Creative Cottage Challenge #13 'Happy Father's Day'

Good morning all! Well, I thought I'd better do this post in advance as time is of an essence of late... so it's actually Tues eve as I'm scheduling this to go live NOW! I'm really struggling to keep on top of things at the moment and seem to have less and less time to craft and blog, it's frustrating as I have some lovely new goodies that my thoughtful hubby bought me and I haven't had the chance to use them! I also feel that I've neglected my blogging buddies too... I apologise for not visiting you all more often!

Anyhow, I've managed to do my DT card for The Creative Cottage Challenge... this week Linda has chosen 'Happy Father's Day' as the theme! I've used digi papers from The Creative Cottage (With Love kit & Summer Mornings kit), as well as the digi corners (Daisy Chain Farm kit). If you check out The Creative Cottage blog you'll see some of these papers in the fab candy up for grabs! The image is a new Penny Black Slapstick stamp called 'Hoppy day', coloured with Promarkers. The little bird and ladybird are also from a Penny Black stamp... the first one I ever bought called 'In a Pot'. The sentiment reads "Wonderful Dad' in French, it's for my FIL. I'm entering this into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge this week which is 'In the Garden' and also the I Love Digi Challenge 'For My Dad'.

Well that's all for today... hope you can join in the challenge with us! Thanks so much for popping by today, and thanks for your continuing support... I really do appreciate it!
