Celebrating Dads at Tiddly Inks

Evening guys, sorry this post is going up a little late. I've only just finished this project, how naughty am I?! I was all whipped up watching the Diamond Jubliee celebrations on TV this morning, then I had to head off to work!! Booohoo!! I totally forgot about this.. Anywho..

Enough of the drone and groan and excuse making! LOL.. here is the card I created using a brand new image to the Tiddly Inks Store.. Ricky - Fishing Expert.

So the new challenge theme this week over at Tiddly Inks, incase you haven't guessed already, is..


How perfect is Ricky for this event?! PERFECT!! I've coloured him using my ProMarkers and FlexMarkers to match my papers from My Minds Eye - Indie Chic Nutmeg collection. I know, I can hear you saying "What?! That paper AGAIN?" Yip. Again. I love it. So I apologise now, you're gonna be seeing a LOT more of it! LOL.

I've paired the image up with a sentiment stamp from Lili of the Valley - I thought it went well with the fun image. What father and son team wouldn't love to go fishing? :) Of course I couldn't complete this 'male' project without some stars. I think it's a disease. HAHA!! I've added some natural twine from SU! around the patterned paper and threaded my wooden button with it too.

That's all from me for today!! Hope you've had a fun day, whatever you've been up to. I hope to be seeing a load of pictures of street parties from my UK bloggers! :) 

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
Love to Create - Fathers Day or Special Guy 
Cards for Men - Fathers Day
Digital Tuesday - Anything Goes
Can you Digi It?! - Button it Up

Oh, while you're here, Christy has created another WRYN for us addicts!! Wryn - Fishing Expert is another BRAND NEW digi to Tiddly Inks - you can see a video Melissa of Melissa Made created for us HERE using both Wryn and Ricky - Fishing Experts!! She actually inspired me to paper piece areas of Rickys outfit.
