Always Fun Challenges - theme Male/ Dad

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How was your weekend? I hope you did something nice. We manged to remove most of the ivy from our garage. We attended a barbecue for people investing in cows for a farm in France. The cows have been bought and will be travelling to France in August. On Sunday we went to the Portsmouth Papercraft show and I met my crafty friend Sandy.

Being Monday the new challenge starts at Always Fun Challenges. The theme this time is Male/ Dad. As Father's Day is not far away it is time to share all those makes.

This is the card I made for my husband's birthday. 

Our challenges are always fun. 

I printed the image from a Creative World of Crafts  CD which is full on Pollyanna Pickering images. I printed the paper from the CD too. The aperture and frame were cut with the Double Pierced Circle dies from Creative Expressions. The ivy was cut with another Creative Expressions die set. 

The sentiment came from a paper pad and it was mounted on the a flag cut with the Stitched flag dies from Creative Expressions. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

Great card Jackie and such a fabulous image as well!

i did have a wry smile about the ivy and your garage. Many years ago I planted a 99p ivy against a high fence here - and in time it just took over to the point it was prising the fence panels apart. We replaced the whole fence a couple of years ago and I'm under threat of an untimely end if I even DARE think of getting another 99p ivy! :) To this day it tries to send up new shoots despite being hacked out and fed copious amounts of Round Up and such to kill it off! Feisty little perisher for 99p!!
