Happy Father's Day


Today is Father's Day, a time to thank our dads for all they do. My Dad is retired now and spends his time in the Somerset countryside, looking after his land (and helping at a local woodland) with his ever-growing collection of old tractors. My sons love visiting him there and Dad even takes his friends on tractor and trailer tides when they visit.
My card for Dad this year has taken on the tractor theme. The stamp set I used is by Sheena Douglass, coloured simply with Spectrum Noir markers. It is perfect for my Dad and I was so pleased when this stamp became available, as I had found it difficult to find suitable tractor theme images in the past.
The backing papers are from Docrafts Mr Mister collection. This green seemed perfect for a country themed card. It's a very simple card really but just right for a country gentleman.
Products used:
Sheena Douglass A Country Life Stamp Set
Docrafts Mr Mister 12x12 Paper Pack and Die Cut Sentiments
Creative Expressions Foundation Card in Taupe
Scrapberry's Adhesive Pearls

I am entering this card for this week's Allsorts Challenge Blog- Use a Stamp
