For Dad

Hi Folks
Well, it's been a busy week at work but the weekend has finally arrived.  Going to have to get some crafty time in this weekend as next weekend I am away on a hen weekend from Friday till Monday.  So looking forward to it.  There are 14 of us going and we have rented out this super beach house at Norfolk.  It is right opposite the beach and has a hot tub and sauna as well.  Lots of girly pampering and drinking me thinks lol.

Anyway just wanted to pop by with a little simple card that I have done for Fathers Day.


I used one of the little Fizzy Moon stamps.  I coloured with promarkers and added some glossy accents to the froth of the beer before cutting out and mounting onto some card.  The button was an old one and I gave it the decopatch treatment.  A bit of twine and some faux stitching finished the card.
Simple but effective.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  My apologies in advance if I don't get round to doing a lot of commenting this week.  Lots of things to do before I go away next weekend.
