Woodware - Father's Day Creations


Hosted by Feebs
It's Father's Day on the 16th of June and  I'd like to see anything you've created for or have been inspired to make by the father figure in your life. It could be anything from a card, a scrapbook page, a knitted scarf or a piece of altered art. It does not have to be specifically for Father's Day ( I don't want you spoiling a surprise for anyone) but let us know the inspiration behind your work.

We are pleased to again be playing along with the CraftyCard Makers this week, the challenge will be open on their blog for two weeks. If you would like to play along with us please check the Crafty Card Maker rules then use the link on the Crafty Card Makers Blog to add your card or if you are not a blogger yet you can e-mail your card to Dorothy as usual  and she will post it and add it to the Crafty Card Makers Blog.
As you can see we are teaming up with the "Crafty Card Makers" this week. I am heading to Vancouver later this week for a Nuclear Medicine conference for work. Sounds pretty boring doesn't it until you realise it's in Vancouver. Usually we occasionally get to go to Brighton or Birmingham. But this year I was one of the lucky three to be picked to go to Vancouver. Also my son is there at the moment on his travelling/working trip and it is nearly a year since I saw him. I am hoping to spend a bit of time with him too!!
Hence the need to try and be organised for Father's Day before I go!! My father loves trees and I just had to use (again) one of my favourite stamps of the moment .....Stampendous Poem Tree. I am sure Dorothy groaned when I sent the images to her and thought "not again!!"
Here is my card.

 The leaves for the background came from an old clear Stampendous set of leaves and embossed with gold powder.
In Ireland where my father lives you sometimes get amazing sunsets. The sun goes down behind the trees like a big ball of fire. So I am hoping this will remind my Dad of that.
I also decided to cover a note book to go with his card which I will take over in July when I go over to visit him.
Same stamp but just a bit distressed. The corner embellishment and the book plate I embossed with Aged Gold embossing powder. I also filled in the book plate with glossy accents and left to dry over night.

So that's it from me this week. My next post will be when I am away, provided I get a move on and make and schedule it!! Think I am going to be busy this week.
For more inspiration for Father's Day, be sure to check the Woodware blog daily this week.
Hope you continue to enjoy the better weather.

  5. In Wichita, Kansas, organic food has found its way to more homes
    and restaurants. As a result, those juices assist in reducing weight.
    You may ask what exercise or weight loss plan you should go into.
