Happy Fathers Day Dad!

What a lovely weekend Ali and I had! We were asked to do some mystery shopping and were lucky enough to get to stay here for the night. The room was totally gorgeous and we did a bit of exploring around the New Forest, which was really nice. Eating fish and chips on the quay in Lymington was a bit of a highlight, as was the visit to the lovely craft shop in Lyndhurst. They sell Copics and have a 'paper room'...... need I say more?!

Now, whilst I am late in sharing this card with you, I promise I did get it to my Dad on time! Although I didn't get to see him on the big day (Mum and Dad are still on the Isle of Wight), we did have a lengthy discussion on the phone about whether Michael Schumacher really is The Stig! I'm now pretty sure he isn't but I love the fact that he could be!

Right, back to my card.... this one is a bit of a Dies to Die For feast for you as both the stamps and the papers are available from Tracy's amazing shop. The image and sentiment I have used is from this fabulous My Favorite Things set, which is perfect for any man in your life. It's not just for father's day either as there are all sorts of sentiments which would cover you for most occasions.

Goodie List........
Let's Hear it For the Boys - MFT - From DTDF
Paper: October Afternoon - Nightlight Henry - From DTDF
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) and Copic markers.
Embellishments: Silver brads and ribbon from stash.

Right, well I will be back tomorrow with my Copic Colour Challenge DT card! See you soon folks!

FAB card chick - love it. And glad you had a nice time xxx.

Ohh how thick am I cos I really believed MS was The Stig!! It has to be someone with pretty impressive driving skills, so it's possible. Also a bit unlikely, but you never know ......

I stood by him once at Silverstone years ago - very verrrry small guy, but not as small as Jean Alessi was (and still is lol). It was when Damon Hill was racing and he was the apple of my eye. It was a hospitality thing and our hosts were sponsoring Schuey so everyone in our box was cheering for him. Except me - cos I am British and I just loved Damon with all my heart. So I cheered for him. He didnt win tho, but I didn't care :))) Hugs xxx
