Father's Day Cards


My Dad loves to spend most of his time in the shed and loves new tools, he asked for new Drill Bits for Father's Day. Last time I was in his shed he had a huge pile of screws & nuts & bolts everywhere. Thus, when I saw this card I just had to make it for Mum to give him as a Father's Day card.
Here is my version. I covered it in the nuts & bolts stamp from 'Lots of Bots' in homage to his shed LOL.

And the inside, which uses the tool images, without the text, from 'Totally Tool'.

Next, I made Dad a card featuring a Punch Art VW Beetle that I CASEd from here. Dad had a Beetle in his youth and has an affection for them. I used the Wide Oval, Large & small Ovals, Horizontal Slot, Word Window and Scallop Circle (cut down for the tires) punches. The headlights are made from a Build-a-Brad with no image glued to the backing. Dad seemed quite chuffed with both cards.

I'll be back soon with yet more birthday cards. What's with the July-September birthday madness??? I need to go hang out my washing (yes, excitement plus), clean my house (more excitement), make some body butter (at last some fun) & make a Christening gift & card (yeah, more fun).

Have a great day,
Love Fi xox
