Happy Father's Day

 It's Father's Day this month and there are lots of male inspired challenges around so I though that it would be rude not to join in so here is my little effort!!


Being a dog lover you would think I would have a mass of dog stamps in my stash...but do I? No I do not!! Among my collection of stamps I found just three and the (unused) set I decided upon was part of a Kanban set which came in a little handbag style storage case that I bought from the tellybox many years ago. It took a bit of tugging to get off the plastic backing but stamped brilliantly!!

The little pooch was coloured with Promarkers and I used various dies and papers to created the little scene. I think that Suzy the dog can give this one to Daddy for Father's Day!!

These challenges inspired me

Whatever weather you are having in the world, stay safe xx

Wonderful card, your design right down to the sun with the strippy coloured centre. Cute puppy, it all comes together perfectly.

Oh it's adorable, and the doggie is perfect! It's amazing, isn't it, when you look at your huge piles of stuff, which you can only surmise must hold a little of everything, yet you somehow manage to discover a gaping hole in your collection. Seems to be happening to me all the time right now! x

Hi Sarah,

I love the fab stamped dog, and it's coloured so perfectly also.

Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
