Fathers Day with Little Claire

Hi Folks
I have been trying to make the most of the sunny weather we have been having to top up my tan.  Would be nice to have a bit of colour on me for my daughter's wedding next weekend.  The time has gone by so quickly and can't believe we only have a week to go to the big day.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Little Claire's Designs.  Our theme for this month is:
Fathers Day
So lets see all those male creations.

Here is my inspiration project using a garden shed design sheet and gingham paper which can be found at Little Claire.

I used some dark green card for the matting and added several layers.  I die cut the bird house, bird and fence just to add some interest.  The sentiment was in my stash.

Thanks for popping by and would love to see you join in the challenge.  The winner of the challenge will win this lovely male themed stamp set.

Just pop over to Little Claire's Designs for full challenge details.
