Fathers Day (don't look Dad!)

Hi!  How have your weekends been?

I went to a jewellery party yesterday, my neighbour knows someone who makes her own bits so it would have been rude not to have gone along and buy a couple of bits!!  I bought some lovely earrings and necklace, very bling!

I've been very busy getting ahead with all my DT projects, I tried a new system!  I planned all my images, matched them up with papers and then coloured them in.  Then put all the cards together the following day.  I think I managed to get more done this way!

Anyway, eventually got my card made for Fathers Day.  Will have to send it tomorrow as Dad is in Canada.

My super talented Ladybug Teamie Anita is on the DT at Meljens Designs and she used this image a little while ago.  I thought it was perfect for my Dad's card.  You can buy it from Whimsy Stamps here.

I used MME Quite Contrary paper and some Stamping Up ribbon.  I used my new Copics and Prisma Pencils to colour in. I kept it quite simple because the image is the main focus.  I hope you like it. 

I would like to thank you all for all your lovely comments and for being a follower.  I absolutely love seeing your comments and having you all enjoy my projects.  Thank you!

I would like to enter into the following challenges:
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
