Father's Day


Hooray! I've managed to make a card (haven't done much housework though lol).  I made this card for my Father-in-Law who plays short tennis - I thought this image was just perfect :)  The image is another one from Digi Stamp Boutique.  I do still find these men's cards awkward with their lack of flowers & sparkle lol.  I coloured "Jim" with ProMarkers, the papers are Designs by Krista & I used (another) new border punch from Martha Stewart this time stars.  I finished the card off with a ticket, string, corners, greeting & a staple.


I'm entering this card for these challenges:

Creative Craft - For the Man in your Life

Daisy Doodles says thank you for joining our challenge! the mancard is awesome. Sure to be a hit with your FIL.

Tracey, I think this is a wonderful, masculine card and your FIL will love it. The ticket, twine, border punch and tag dress it up nicely. (Although I am partial to bling, ribbon and flowers myself too.)
