Stamptacular Sunday Challenge # 11 - 'Fabulous Father's'



Good afternoon peeps! I bet your out there enjoying the sunshine? Its been super-hot here today, much to hot to do anything but craft, lol! Sorry I haven't managed to upload my D & D DT card this week, for some reason, it won't let me upload onto my blog. It has been put on the challenge blog, so if you did want to see it, its on there.

My challenge today is for Stamptacular Sunday Challenge . It's theme is 'Fabulous Father's', my dad, unfortunately no longer with me, loved fishing, so I know that he would have loved my card. Also, I don't make enough male themed cards, so this was a real challenge for me. I have been wanting to make a slider card for ages, it was so fun to do. I have given you a side view to show how I made this.

My image is 'Fishing Ian', not sure if that's his proper name, but hey ho! I have used Nestie's # 3, Cosmo Cricket paper and brown Bazzill card. The stamped sentiment is Magnolia and the 'DAD' was cut out using QK Dragonfly. I have glossy accented the little fish and have cut the larger one out using a QK die in mirri-card.

If any of you dear blogging buddies know where I can get hold of a 'Surfer Ian' stamp, I would be very grateful. I have two cards to do for twin nephews who live in Devon, they are big surfer dudes, so his image would be perfect for the project I have in mind, thanks alot. The big ironing pile awaits, have a great evening, love Heidi xxx
