How is your week going? We have got to what some refer to as Hump Day so technically we are on the run down to the weekend. Not that I am time off obsessed of course.
I am ever wanting to be ahead with my projects just in case some opportunities come up so I have time to fit them in. You never know. With this is mind I decided to start on my Father's Day Cards yesterday. I have had the idea for this card for my Father-in-law since I worked with the nautical dies from Tattered Lace a few weeks ago.
You might know that my Father-in-Law is just over 90 and a naval veteran of the second world war. He also volunteered for many years running a Sea Cadet unit near where he lives. He does love cards with a nautical theme and some texture as he is now partially sighted.
This is the Tattered Lace Sailing Ship die. This has been one of my favourite dies that I have been sent by Tattered Lace. I can see my self using it a lot in the future. I inked the background and I made the port hole with some Tonic circle dies. I cut a circle of acetate to fit inside the port hole to make it look like glass.
This is the Tattered Lace Anchor die I like how the rope wraps around the anchor.
The sentiment was cut with a Signature die.
I know my Father-in-Law will like this card. He is always very pleased with my cards and phones especially to say thank you. I have two more Father's Day cards to make. I am not so sure what to make for the other cards. I will be looking around for some inspiration.
I would like to enter Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 225 , TTCRD 19th April Challenge and Penny's Challenge 274 .
Enjoy the rest of the week.
