Father's Day

Good Afternoon. I don't know what's up with me today I can't seem to get going. I was awake at 5 listening to the birds tweeting outside my window and couldn't get back to sleep so got up before 6 and did a quick tidy round and then have done nothing much else since then.  I feel so tired.  Anyway thought I'd better get my dad's Fathers day card done.  I know I've left it 'til the last minute but that's me lol.

Thank goodness my friend gave me some of the LOTV squares that she bought at the Port Sunlight show.  All you have to do is stick 'em on a card.  I did cut it out with a nestie though and matted it onto another nestie and then added a little bit of colour to the tree, grass and his shirt and socks with my Promarkers.  I got a bit of inspiration from Coops who has been using scrim on her cards lately.  I got a similar effect with plasterboard tape and even better it's sticky.

The pom poms are from Miria that I won in a blog hop.  The sentiment was printed on the computer.

Hi Debs, Love your card this image is just so so sweet. Great image for a masculine card and your colours are very pretty. Don't worry I've been feeling like that as well my biggest problem is going to bed and not being able to sleep and my DH puts his head on the pillow and is out to it so annoying when you can't sleep. Lavander oil on my pillow is meant to help! Great job and thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.

Brilliant idea with the palsterboard tape - shall have to look for that. This is a lovely image for your Father's Day card - & good thinking with the LOTV squares. Take care of yourself with the sleep - it really saps your energy during the day when that happens.
