Father's Day card

Hi everyone,

Well this Friday came around quick didn't it?!

Today I have a card for you....no don't adjust your screens I said a card! This is only the second one I have ever made,having made one for my mum on Mother's Day earlier in the year.

This is for my father in law as sadly my own dad passed away just over a year ago,he is much missed everyday. I thought I would make this so my OH could give his dad this on Sunday.

To all you card makers out there.....how on earth do you keep a white card white?!? The amount of times I washed my hands during this but I still managed to get a little smudge on it!

I am entering this in Frilly and Funkie,For all our fathers challenge here

Hope you like it

  2. Hi Donna, I love this card. It looks awesome! I don't get along very well with white ANYTHING, so I feel your pain.

    I thought I was already following you...I usually insist on learning the hard way. Anyway, I'm following now. Thank you for your many kind comments on my blog. I cannot reply to you personally as you are a noreply blogger. I just want you to know I so appreciate your comments. Now I must catch up on your arty endevors!

    2. As I commented just now on your most recent lovely winged creature, I thought I should probably check back in here. I don't normally go back to a post I have already seen and commented on...way too many new ones to visit and so little time...you know.

  4. What a beautifully designed and executed card Donna. As for white? I feel and share your pain! The only suggestion would be to cover up the white areas with copy paper until you are finished. Thank you so much for joining us at Frilly and Funkie. Jenny x
