Alex and I have both managed some crafting time this week! Here is Alex taking over my desk on Tuesday morning while playing with the cuttlebug to make a picture of 'Alligator Man'!
For my entry to WOYWW this is my desk as it looked on Tuesday evening whilst making my Father's Day cards. You can see distress inks, pads, craft mat, the paper that I patterned with stamps and inking effects for use as a background (see below), cards, stamps, sequin waste and of course my trusty mug of tea.
I received some more wonderful ATCs from the anniversary swap...these were the overseas ones. Top left in blue is from NanG, top right in pretty feminine colours is from Sandra De, bottom left in bright colours is from ScrappyMo, and bottom right in gold and black is from Shaz in Oz. Aren't they all stunning! Thank you all so much.
Here are the finished Father's Day cards. I made very similar ones for both Dad's (mine and my DH's) as they are both into gardening and birdwatching. The background paper on the card was made by me using distress inks with various effects, and stamping using stamps from Hero Arts (birds), Lavinia stamps (leaves and stars), Creative individuals (ferns, dragon fly and small bird) and JustRite (lettering). The main panel was made using a sentiment stamp I picked up at a show years ago with the text layered onto different cards and then finished with either a heart brad or a button. I am entering these into SSSS 'buttons', crafty cardmakers 'Father's Day', Kaboodle Doodles 'for your favourite guy', CCCB 'its all about him', PTW 'hello boys', Tuesdays Throwdown 'You're the man' and All Sorts 'in the garden'. That is all from me for now. Have a great week everyone.
