In The Country

Morning all!  A slightly later post than usual from me today, because I didn't have to be getting up at silly o'clock as I have the day off, wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

I was humming and harring about what to post today when I realised that I hadn't posted my Father's Day card.  There is no danger of mum or dad seeing it accidentally as they don't have a computer, so I shall share with you today.


This one is a potpourri card 
Stamp is LOTV In The Country
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are a mish-mash from my 12x12 scrap booking box - the grass and straw were some of the very first 12x12 papers that I ever bought, plus a strip of Doodlebug stripes, and a wee piece of Maja Designs gingham
Bazzil Basics brown card
Fence die is, I think, a Marianne Creatables
Tiled sentiment stamp is a magazine freebie
So is the rosette stamp
Glittered number 1 from my stash of peel-off emergency numbers

On the inside I have matted a white panel onto a layer of the green gingham and added the words
I SMILE because you are my daddy
I LAUGH because there is nothing you can do about it!

That's me done.  I am off to load the washing machine, give Rosie a prod, and then get down to some serious crafting.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Perfect card, he will love it. Love the beautifully coloured image and the papers are perfect. I SO loved what you put inside. I suspect your poor dad feels the same (only a real friend is allowed to get away with saying that!) I smile because I suspect my poor dad feels the same! Ha. Biggest of hugs, Jayne xx
