Fathers day...

Happy bank holiday Monday, another long weekend again, we've had so many recently it's great!!

Over at Lexis Creations the challenge this week is we want to see your Fathers day cards.

Our sponsor this week is Letraset

I had fun with my DT card, I was watching C&C and watched the demonstrator distressing some embossed card and realised i'd never used that piece of sandpaper I pinched from my hubby about a year ago to use in my crafting. So later that day I managed to find it and had a play around with some white core card and came up with my DT card. I hope you like it. It's using squaddie scruffles and sentiment from Stitchy bear stamps both of which were designed by Lexi.

Recipe: The digi image was coloured in with Promarkers. I used papers from Basic Grey along with some matching rub ones. I've embossed and distressed the green white core card. There's some eyelets dotted around the place and the easel part is held up with Candi, I had to colour the Candi with Promarkers as for once I didn't have the right colour.

Thanks for looking and don't forget to check out the other fabulous Fathers day cards by the rest of Lexis design team here
