First things first.. the theme this week over is..
"FATHER'S DAY/ MAN'S CARD"
We've been very kindly sponsored by Love To Stamp, and the lucky winner will recieve a $15 voucher!
So, I've gone for a hybrid of the two.. using an adorable digi from Some Odd Girl©. Just so you know.. I thought of the sentiment ALL BY MYSELF! Awesome, I know! ;)
The card came together pretty fast - if you're a follower of my blog you will probably recognise this layout. I can't get away from it. I spotted it on someones blog aaaaages ago and I can't remember who it was to give them credit! It has stuck with me ever since though and I use it. A LOT! The little Magnolia die was sent to me by my lovely friend Roz. She cut me a bunch from white cardstock, so I've 'coloured' this one with Old Paper DI to coordinate it with the rest of the card - not overly sure how well that went.. but there you have it.
