Happy Father's day!!!

I hope that you've all had a lovely day. It was my hubby's first father's day, but unfortunately I'm so full of cold that we were unable to go out and enjoy the sunshine. I'm sure we'll make up for it next year.

On Friday I was able to drop Ben off with his grandma and enjoy craft day with the girlies. It was so wonderful to have a day off. Who would have thought that a small child could be so much work??? Thank you to the fantabulous Linda for hosting craft day. It was sooo fab!

I made, sorry that should read Ben made (LOL) this card for his dad on craft day. I followed the Cute Card Thursday Sketch (from memory, so it may not be totally spot on!) and used one of Karen's Doodles fabulous stamps. This stamp is perfectly entitled crafting widower. I've coloured with my copics and chalked the edges. DP is from K&Co. and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

As well as the card "Ben" also made his dad a picture. I was inspired by a catalogue, they wanted £69 for something similar. I bought the tiles off ebay and the frame was from hobbycraft. Worked out at just £18 - Bargain! I was a little worried what the DH would think, but he absolutely loved it. I think it really hit him that he's actually a dad now. ahhhh!

Well that's about it for today. Hopefully my cold will disappear soon. I've got some more projects to share with you this week - yay!

As its Father's day, it does seem to be the theme over at a few blogs, so I'm also entering this card into the following competitions:
