Happy Daddy's Day...

Hello there

Gosh didn't this weekend just woooosh right past your ears?  It certainly did mine, and I had an extra day off.  Myself, Debs, Sandra and Di had a Playground outing and along came Parsnip and Fergus.  It has been a while since Fergus and Parsnip met up.

I pinched the photo off Miss Di but I know she won't mind!

Right then.  Before June is totally over I thought I had better share my card I made for my Dad for Father's Day.  Here is the envelope which I made using my Memory Keepers envelope board. I just love how the dots were diagonal before I started it and now they are perfectly straight.  Freeky!

The snail stamps were bought ages ago and I have not used them so they are NBUS really.  My Dad shares his name with the Snail in Magic Roundabout, hence the relevance!  And here is the card...

Papers are VOS from Papermania and a Boofle pl sticker.

Not the most well lit to take a photo as the light was streaming in from behind the card.

But this close up is better.  The browns and creams were all Snippets so I am going to take this right down to the Snippets Playground.

I have had a bit of lovely news today too.  My number came up in Darnell's NBUS Challenge #1.  Yippee.  Sooo pleased. Especially on a Monday morning.

Thanks for calling by.

Well done on your win, looks like a lovely day out with "the girls" and lovely makes from you too

Oooh Sam, LOVELY card and envelope! Bet your Dad was pleased :)

I actually used the photo that Sarn sent so it wasn't really mine to pinch in the first place, grin.

And I too was a winner in Darnell's draw - happy dance here as well!

Hugs, Di xx

Fabulous box card! I bet your dad loved it - fabulous details. I have not dared try one of these yet, too many issues with scoring and folding lol! Love the Friday Funny too! Karen xx

Here's a few more words from another NBUS winner! Yay!! What a great card for your dad! All those stars popping out of the box must have put a big smile on his face!! I love the snail mail envie too :)

Oh big congrats for your win at Darnell's NBUS Challenge! It's bound to be a great prize. I'm loving the photo (saw it at Pixie's too, and you folks were having SUCH fun. Wish I could have joined you all). Your card in a box is wonderful. I'm amazed at the straight dots (if that was for real in your comment & not just being funny). I would never have the courage to make an envelope with a pattern! Your Dad will love this very special card, and have such fun opening the 'box' and seeing all the wonderful & special elements you chose just to make him know how much you love him. Give him a big birthday hug from me too! I can't give my Dad one! Hugs & TFS

Looks like you had a lovely rendezvous - and I love that exploding box of stars - very cool, as is the dotty envelope. Yay for the win!
