I have been away to Liverpool for a few days. It was an amazing trip it centred around a concert by the Bootleg Beatles with the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and Roger McGough. This concert celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the release of the Sergeants Pepper's album. We also visited the recreated Cavern club we joined the National Trust so we could visit the house where John and Paul grew up. We even did the ferry cross the Mersey trip. It is a wonderful city there is so much to do and see. I have been missing a bit but I am slowly catching up now.
On the first Tuesday of the month the new challenge starts on the Unicorn Challenge blog this time the theme is For the Guys. Which is just in time for all those Father's Day makes.
I am sharing the Father's Day card I made for my father-in-law. He was a sailor and he loves nautical themed cards. As he is loosing his sight I like to make the design bold and bright and tactile.
I used an A4 hexagaon embossing folder to create the background. The paper came from my stash.
The ship is a Signature die and I made the waves with a Tattered Lace die.
This is another brilliant Signature Father's Day die. I love sentiment dies. I have a few alphabet dies but I hate putting sentiments together is is just brilliant to cut them all out in one go.
This is a statue in the Cavern Walks shopping centre which I think covers part of the site of the original Cavern Club where the Beatles played in the 60s.
Here is the ferry we crossed the Mersey in. It was decorated by Peter Blake the artist behind the Sergeant Pepper's album cover.
A view of the Liver building from the water. It was a wonderful trip to an amazing city.
I hope you have a great week.
