I thought that as i was making a Fathers Day card for my Dad, i would follow the challenge on Polkadoodles - week 23 Something for Dad.
I used the paper and sentiment from a scrummy Polkadoodle freebie download from a couple of years ago. I use these papers all the time, they are ideal for male themed cards. I was trying to come up with something different for my card topper and there it was staring me in the face - a measuring tape! I cut a long strip of paper and folded it to spell out "a d" adding a copper "D" in the shape of the measuring tape itself.
Happy Fathers Day!!!

Next Maria who will be 9, also in April - Maria loves girly things especially cute & fluffy animals so using some tiny dogs in handbag papers and cutting a very girly pink poodle and matching bag using my cricut that was the base to her card.
Next is Keira who will be 6 in May. Keira loves her toy elephant "ellie" so once again i cut an elephant using my cricut and build a card using some floral baking paper - its quite a dark card, with a hint of hot pink, I'm sure Keira will love it.
I used the template from papercraft inspirations magazine and the fathers day papers from Polkadoodles (from last year i think?) I also made a little book/paper to cover my dozing dad!
