Wellington Fathers Day Card

Evening everyone,
Here is the card I made for my Dad this year, a fairly simple card using one of the new Wellington embossabilities stickers.

The fabby text backing paper is from the Wellington collection as are the sentiment tag and 'Dad' stamp.
Everything is mounted on a kraft card blank and the border punch is doily dots, all by Docrafts.

I hope this post publishes ok as I'm sending it via email on my blackberry, very clever if it works! :)
Have a nice evening, I'm off to find a little something for tea, maybe cheese and crackers, yum! :)

My 1st Funky Hand DT card - finally!

Well what a crazy couple of weeks it has been here, a blown car exhaust and a broken speedometer on two seperate cars, and then a big printer malfunction, all before a 3 day conference in Bournemouth with Docrafts - more about that soon!
Then there was a day visit to a close crafty friend of mine on the saturday and a Jubilee BBQ on bank holiday monday, all before work again on Tuesday! Phew, makes me feel tired again just typing about it! ;)
Now I'm back (or as close as I get!) to normal and so am back to my prep work and blogging about it too!

The card below is my first DT sample for the new "Wishes & Kisses" cd from Funky Hand which was released whilst I was away. These Papercraft Factory cds come complete with a workspace which allows you to do clever things with your backing papers and it also has new templates, as well as the much requested lower case letters in the Wordbook generator! Yay, thanks Anice! :)

There are 12 all new paper designs/colour collections on the cd and all the Funkettes are working with a specific collection for their first few projects; so my first card uses papers from the 'Hey Baby Girl' collection.
I've also used the pram and a sentiment digi stamps and the flower embellishment was made using one of the new templates fixed together with a flower brad.
I am loving these new templates, there is also a gift card wallet and an exploding box which I have made and will be blogging about very soon.

Right, now I'm off to finish a wordbook (using lower case letters of course!) ready for Father's Day coming up. Thanks for stopping by, Ni. :) x
