Sporting Father's Day

Well, considering I was initially very disappointed that I had to cancel my Plan A for today it has turned out to be a very pleasant day.

I had coffee (and a spot of cake) and a crafty chat with Val over at Aquarius blog, then coffee & a snack with a friend before popping to Sherborne on a craft reconnaissance mission!!

All very lovely in the sunshine - and hopefully fruitful on the mission side but I'll have to report on that another day.

These cards are a couple of Father's Day cards I've made this week.

The stamps are a Papermania set that I've stamped in memento rich cocoa and added a little bit more shading with brown pencil.  I have stamped the main image twice, the second one is cut out and 3D'd on - using thicker pads on the footballer as this was hand delivered, the rugby one was a commission to be posted.

The cards are 5x7" from Anna Marie and are layered up with gold, dark brown and more kraft card.

Finished with peel off sentiment and some matching card candi.  

Hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine.


  1. I bet the sporty dads liked their cards. Glad your plan B turned out well for the day - always good to have a crafty catch up with friends.

  2. Perfect Jill - love the monochromatic colour scheme. Sounds like plan B went well - can't wait to hear all about it! Well done on spotting the deliberate mistake.....did you notice on Wednesday night? It was only when I looked at the photo that I noticed! Weird or what?

  3. Oh, my comment just disappeared......anyway lovely monochromatic FD cards. Glad plan B turned out okay - will wait to hear all about it! Well done on spotting the deliberate (not) mistake. Did you see it on Wednesday night? I only noticed when I looked at the photo.....weird or what?
