Hi everyone :)
Thank you for stopping by & coming to have a browse.
I would also like to thank & welcome all my new followers. It is nice to know that i'm not 'chatting' to myself lol.
I am extremely excited as I have been asked to be a Guest Designer for ABC Challenges for the month of September. I am soo thrilled & thank you very much for this wonderful opportunity :)
The next challenge at ABC Challenges is:
W for Wishes.
Well, Father's Day is just around the corner for us in Australia which is on the 2nd September. So I thought I would create a design to celebrate this wonderful occasion :)
I chose an hAngler & stAngler image to be the spotlight of my design. I'm not too sure of this cute little boy's name. Maybe you could enlighten me? He was such a pleasure to colour :)
This little boy has been out fishing for most of the day & he is obviously very good at it cos' he has brought back a big pail of fish home to his Dad for Father's Day. Pretty cool hey? I mean, he couldn't get more lucky if he tried...what with catching a gold fish!! lol
I had a lot of fun putting this design together.
The buttons, spirals, yarn & jute are from my oldies stash. I was so excited to actually be able to use a whopping ten buttons that have been sitting in my button tray for quite some time :)
The DP is Fancy Pants Designs & the ribbon is from my Really Reasonable Ribbon July Club Assortment (which I get a new & different pack each & every month). The blue brads are My Minds Eye & was also able to use another four buttons from my oldies stash :) Woo hoo lol.
The inside has been decorated to compliment the outside of the card keepsake.
I was a bit hesitant with putting flowers on this design due to it being for a man for Father's Day but I think they compliment the design well, don't you? Besides, the Father should think himself lucky to get flowers on his special day lol. It's not every day a man gets flowers, right? lol
Oh, did you see the tag? I forgot to point that out lol.
The Magnolia Doohickey Vintage Tag is a recently purchased gift
to myself :) What??? .... Well, someone's gotta do it lol.
