Pear Tree Designs - Father's Day

Afternoon everyone! Thank you to everyone who joined in with our Summer Delights challenge over at PTD last week - it was great to see all of those summer entries with bright colours and the like!! Congratulations to the winner AUDREY. Please contact Donna to claim your prize of x4 digis from Sweet 'n Sassy and x4 digis from Crafty Sentiments!! You're going to have a blast!!

This week over at Pear Tree Designs we want to see those Father's Day creations. As the occasion starts creeping up on us we need to get those cards and projects finished in time.

We have two sponsors this week:

~Meljen's Designs

~One Stop Card Crafts

The winner of this weeks challenge will recieve a fab goody bag from One Stop Card Crafts:

Plus, Meljen's Designs are offering x4 digis of the winners choice!! How cool! Like you need any more reason to enter!


The DT were lucky enough to be given some images from Meljen's to play with!! I was super excited to get FIREMAN BEAR printed off and coloured up!! How cute is he?!

I have a kraft base for my topper, I have printed my image on Neenah cardstock and coloured him using PM's and Copics. I have trimmed him down and rounded the corners. To reflect the yellow on his suit I decided to add a little hand stitching using my Sew Easy tool. Now that my sewing machine is broke.. I guess it's the perfect excuse to get this handy little tool out a little more. It seems to have become neglected a little - but not any more! :) My sentiment has been created using a mixture of Jenni Bowlin alpha stickers and American Crafts Thickers. That is about all!! :)

I would like to enter this topper into these challenges:
× Card Cupids - Animals
× Creative Inspirations - Father's Day or Card for Dad
× Dream Valley - Father's Day

Thanks for stopping by today, I can't wait to see your Father's Day creations over on the PTD blog. Hop on over now to see what the other ladies on the DT have come up with using these gorgeous images!

xo Lou Mac.
