Just For You Dad

Hi Folks
I had a lovely last day at work yesterday.  My colleagues know me well as I received some Hobbycraft vouchers as a leaving pressie.  I will really enjoy spending those.  It was a bit emotional saying goodbye to everyone but as soon as I walked out the door I knew that I had made the right decision to leave.  Now it is onwards and upwards and looking forward to the next challenge.

Today I thought I would share a Fathers Day card that I made for one of my nephews to give to his Dad.

I used a tutorial that I found over on the Papermill blog here to make the shirt.  The tie was made using kraft card and stamped with a small star stamp.  The sentiment was a freebie that I received with a crafting magazine - I believe it was the Docrafts one but cannot be sure.  I added some faux stitching around the cuff and the pocket and used some buttons from my stash.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  Hope you all have a good weekend.
