Dream Valley Challenge 9 - Father's Day

It' time for another challenge at Dream Valley and this fortnight's theme is Father's Day. You can make any kind of project - did any of you see Melly's amazing caravan for the last challenge? Just fabulous!!

We have two lovely sponsors this fortnight: Karen's Doodles who very kindly gave us some images which the DT girls have used to great effect; and One Stop Card Crafts.

This cute image is Herbert the Turtle chillin' with a glass of something sparkly!

The sketch is from Inspirational Card Sketches it's perfect for an unfussy man's card, don't you think?!

My paper is a double-sided sheet from Pebbles Inc Lil' Miss Collection which came from Dies to Die For. I used a loop-edged Nestie for the circular mat to echo the loops on the paper - I'm sure this is the kind of thing you chaps do in your sleep, but I was quite pleased with myself for thinking of it! The green ric-rac from my stash also echoes the loops!

The sentiment is PB, the 'DAD' is some alpha stickers I've had hanging around for a while, and the spots are my lovely shiny Paperchase circle stickers - they are so useful!

I'm also entering this into Stamptacular Sunday Challenge whose theme is 'Dads and Grads.'

So that's that! I hope you're all having a lovely weekend in spite of the grey, damp weather! Do hop along to Dream Valley to see the gorgeous things my teamies have made!

Thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x

Love that image, Mags, he looks so fab in his sunnies! lol. it looks even more summery in the sunny spot where you took the photo, and I agree that layout is perfect for a man card. CoB
