Best Dad Awards for Father's Day!

Crickey... phew.... finally found a moment to blog....! But wait for it....wait for it.... I've been so busy - CRAFTING!!!! Yep, that's right, my creative juices were flowing in cascades, no - waterfalls rather lol :). So much that I genuinely did not have any time to blog lol :).

But I finally decided to take a break and share with you a commissioned card I made for a friend at work:

As you might suspect - it was for a special occasion :). This card will be going to her hubby tomorrow as a Father's Day pressie from their two boys. I added a little pocket/envelope at the front, so they can hide a little gift voucher in there, too.

I was asked to incorporate the pictures of the boys somewhere on the card. As she emailed me quite a few to choose from, I came up with a film strip idea as a way of framing them. From the film strip the concept developed into a whole film stars/awards theme :).

The film strip is a Tim Holtz stamp and the papers are from K&Co. 

My Dad sadly passed away a few years ago, which makes days like this really hard for me :(... I can only send my wishes for him in my heart and thoughts... 

But I will be back soon to share a card I made for my FIL :).

Thank you so much for your fantastic comments on my Diamond Jubilee coaster set. I must confess, I kept reading them over and over again, they were so inspiring, heart squeezing and just totally fabulous! Thank you so much!

And if you fancy some sweet candy, make sure to pop over to my Blog Candy Cauldron - some really yummy giveaways are cookin' there!

So for all Dads out there - Happy Father's Day!!!!

Big hugs
