Fathers Day

Well I thought it was about time I made a start with some fathers day cards, so this is the first batch and they are for my Dad. The one below is from my children. My Dad is known as Bampsi. When my son Tom was very small he couldn't pronounce Grampa, which is what I called my Grandfather. The closest he came was Bampsi and it stuck, I think my dad quite likes it, well to be honest he had no choice..lol!!! The papers are all from DCWV QVC TSV, as are the letters. The sentiment tile was a freebie from one of the crafty mags. As for the image, Michelle very kindly sent me a gorgeous wallet card recently filled with some fabby PB stamped images, huge thanks again Michelle, it was such a lovely surprise. And for a complete contrast is this card. Having seen Julie create a beautiful collage style card for her dad, I wanted to give it a go, well this turned out nothing like...lol!! nothing new there then, as all my cards never turn out how I originally imagined them to be..hehe!! The background paper is Papermania 'simply elegant', the script paper is Joanna Sheen. I bought a pad of script paper way back last year and completely forgot about it, only used it for one Christmas card, but being inspired by Julie's card, remembered these papers and thought they would be appropriate for my dads card as I wanted an oldie, aged looking card....oooppsss!!! no offence dad...hehe!! Cuttlebug distressed stripes embossing folder and the sentiments are stamps by Autumn Leaves, 'duly recorded' and 'stamped and coded' which I have recently received from Scrapshed.
How about this glorious sunshine, hope you are all making the most of it. My lot are having a water fight in the garden, so as I don't particularly fancy getting wet, I thought I would escape and do some blogging instead. And what about this football lark .....aaarrgghh!! they've only put that silly stuff on tonight instead of Corrie....oh well!!! at least that may give me another chance to make some more Fathers Day cards. Hope your all happy and well, ttfn xx vicki xx

Both gorgeous cards Vicki. Each of them different from the other, but equally as fab!!
What a lovely name for Grandpa. My youngest could never say Grandad, it used to come out as Wamwad which we always found comical. (but it never stuck...hehe)
As for football.........
