Just Cute Bears # 20 Father's Day.

Good morning everyone and I hope you are having a lovely weekend. As I write this on Saturday afternoon we have had a lovely day. Then there was a touch of rain but it seems to be fine again now. A customer on Saturday morning said it would rain later and be even worse on Sunday. I'm hoping he was wrong. I have a holiday on Monday unlike most other people who had the Bank Holiday last week. This is just a local holiday but hey I'm not proud a holiday is a holiday!

But on to our challenge at Just Cute Bears. This week we would like you to make something for Father's Day.

This is the lovely stamp you could win this week from our sponsor Kim at Cuddly Buddly. Isn't this a sweet image and just right for this time of year. I've just heard from Ali that Kim has a sale on just now so her web shop is definitely worth a visit!

As usual I struggled with doing a male card lol! Funny cos I have a husband, son, son-in-law and grandson and I was brought up with 2 brothers. I spent ages looking for this stamp which I KNEW I had but couldn't find. Then I realised that I'd tidied up my LOTV stamps into a folder lol!

I used :-
Image :- LOTV.
Sentiment and card candy :- Craftwork Cards.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
DP :- Prima.
Buttons, string and ribbon from stash.
I'm also meaning to enter a couple of challenges with this card.
Simon Says Stamp :- Male card.
I hope you can find a minute to tell me what you think of my card. I'm always encouraged by your lovely comments. Self doubt always seems to follow me and your comments always give me a boost. My talented teamies have made some gorgeous cards as usual and they would love to hear what you think too. You can find links to their blogs in my sidebar. And this month we are joined by the very talented Cherie as GDT. Cherie has made a beautiful card and her blog is well worth a visit.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
