Hi Folks,

Well errrr ummmm!!! I made my Dad a Fabby Fathers Day card last week and then had a look back at my cards for him over the years!!! I had only used the exact same image 2 years back on his birthday so here is my Dads Fathers Day card take 2!!!! I can safely say I love my Bugaboo Images as it was the same image twice. Worst bit is I have bought it twice now too!!! Oops!!! Whit a Dafty!!

This one is made using the Pollyanna Pickering DVDrom Sketch Book Chapter One Garden Birds. Now I know he will like this as he loves Pollyanna Pickering stuff and bird watching in the garden. Well until Daisy the kitty starts birdwatching too rubbing her tummy!!! 

2 x 6 x 6 Cards
Pollyanna Pickering Sketch Book Chapter One Papers and Image
Die Cut Dad free alphabet Die from a Magazine.
Ribbon - from Jake.
Pearls from Stash

The ribbon is recycled. Jake brought a whole pile of it back from his work. He had to take it off items that had been wrapped with dark blue ribbon for festive sales but the items then went on general sale so no longer needed their pretty bits. He did ask the Boss if he could. (Its ok its his Dad too). 

Off now to have a look round the garden to see how much damage Storm Hector has done. There are a few plants missing parts and my peony is now headless. I brought the flower in and popped it into water. Hoping it will last a few days.

Love and Sparkles,

Hazel xx

Hi Hazel this is a stunning card. I do love Pollyanna Pickering images. My dad wouldn't notice it I gave him a card with an image I had used before. Take care. Hugs Jackie

This is lovely Hazel - to me it has a vintage look to it. Great recycled item too, far too nice to bin! Well done Jake.

What a pity about the first card, but at least it gave you the opportunity to make this one and it is gorgeous. I love the beautiful image.

A beautiful card Hazel. I think I have a die of little birds on a telephone wire. Thank you for joining in with my challenge. Great to find a fellow crafter who does things and/or buys things twice. I am sure we are not the only ones.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that does that Hazel - I don't expect he would have noticed! This is a beautiful card, you can't go wrong with a Pollyanna image, so many of them are perfect for masculine cards.
Have a lovely weekend.
