Father's Day

Father's Day was earlier this month... 4th of Sept... while I was in hospital.  I did manage to get a card off for my Dad and sent a text on the day.  I did ring once I got home....
Here's what I sent him

Father's Day

I stamped the Harlequin stamp down the left side using Faded Jeans and Tea Dye distress inks.  The rest of the card was distressed with the Tea Dye ink.  The vintage car and the PP are from Graphic 45.  This 8 x 8 pad ( A Proper Gentleman) is a great one for making male cards.

Today I managed to drive myself off to have my blood test done.  Hubby was up at sparrow fart ( 5.15am) to head out to the airport to head off to Christchurch for the day.  He said it was very depressing to see the city in ruins.   Feeling a bit sore tonight so heading off for an early night.

Thanks for stopping by and as always I appreciate all your lovely comments.

Dawn all the elements you combined for this masculine card fit perfectly together! I especially like how you used two different colors on the harlequin pattern.
