Father's Day card for Quick Cards Made Easy magazine

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? We are nearly at the weekend. Tomorrow we are setting off for our daughter's Hen Weekend. My husband has kindly agreed to drive us there and he will stay for one night and return  on Sunday to pick us up. It is so good that this will be a long weekend meaning we will get a day to recover.  I will be out of touch for a while as it is going to be busy.

A little while ago I responded to a request on Facebook from Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine to be one of the readers to use the bonus papers for issue 165 of the magazine. I was accepted and I was sent the papers by email to print at home. Ten people are chosen and three of the cards are printed in the magazine and all the cards appear on the Quick Cards  Facebook page.

I was quite thrilled when I saw these papers they are just brilliant for Father's Day. 

I found some online tutorials for how to fold an origami shirt I added a ribbon tie. 

This is one of the sentiments it looks like a chalk board. 

This sentiment went well with the the gardening paper. Both of our dads like gardening. 

I bought a copy of the magazine and I was thrilled to see that my card was one of the three chosen to be featured along with my little write up. 

Of course I added all my mats and layers and I found some black buttons for the corners.

I am quite looking forward to the weekend. If I can get some appropriate photos I will post them on the wedding page at the top of this blog. 

Happy Crafting
