Totally Gorjuss 188 - For Dad.

Good morning everyone. Hope it's going to be another nice day, but you never know, do you? It's been a lot better this week than I thought it was going to be.

Edited to add - thanks for not posting this at 8am this morning Mr Blogger. I suppose 7.03pm is better late than never!!

This week at Totally Gorjuss our theme is "For Dad." This could be a Father's Day card or just a birthday card, it's up to you.

Here's what I made.

I used :-
Image and DP :- LOTV.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Sentiment :- Stampin' Up! cut out with a Stampin' Up! punch matted on dark blue cut out with another Stampin' Up! punch.
Faux stitching :- black gel pen.

Challenges :-

Freshly Made Sketches

Oldie but a Goodie :- Stitching. I think my DP is older than 6 months old.
Addicted to Stamps and More :- Addicted to CAS.

I'm scheduling this as I never have enough time on a Saturday morning and since I've spent what seems like hours writing this post I'm going to quit while I'm ahead now!

I'm going to a crop after work so I'll try to catch up with you all later if my broadband connection allows me.

Thanks for looking and for the lovely comments you leave me.
