Fabulous Fishing For Fathers Day

Wow that was a lot of F's in one go.  Hi all and hope you have had a lovely day, I know I did.  
Football Fever now that has another two F's in it and thank heavens for the World Cup, as tonight England were playing and the DH was avidly rooted to the chair, as was I but I was rooted to my craft room chair, creating this card for his dad for father's day.  

Today he very kindly took me to Hobby Craft, as I needed to purchase some more supplies for another special order.  We had a great shop around, he bought some more spray paint for his model and then we treated our son Mike to another wooden model.  Me well I got lots of bits but was very good and did not spend too much.  Actually they did not have the flowers they use to have, so bought some and then came home to order the others on line. We then had coffee and lunch at Costa Coffee before heading back to by maggots for his fishing tomorrow.  So my weeks holiday is starting as it should in the craft room :)

So the card was based on a sketch kindly provided by Papertake Weekly Challenge and on the colours provided by the Play Date Cafe

Here is the sketch
and here is the Play Date Cafe's colour theme of Raspberry, Aqua, Kraft and White.
So quickly onto the Card today which just had to have the family favorite hobby of fishing on it.
I have used Daisy and Dandelion Masculine Fishing Stamp and the papers are from 365 Degrees, Pink Paisley.  It was the stripy paper that got me into this stack which contained the perfect colours.  The inner sentiment is MSE.

Here is a close up of the copic coloured image, have returned to my manga board for a change and love the blend ability it gives. I think you need a change now and again.
So I am also entering this card into the following challenges

Cards for men Challenge No. 12 - Father's Day (Love the look of their blog)

Stamp Something - Happy Something - Happy Father's Day

The Pixie Cottage - A Sketch or Father's Day or Both - Any guesses on what I chose?

Charisma Cardz Challenges - Spots and Stripes (I have gone heavily on the stripes and added spots to the image and pearls for extra spots)

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Father's Day/Men's Cards

Just Cute Bears Challenge - Father's Day (might have missed this one, fingers crossed)

Would like to thank the DT at Charisma Cardz for letting the Random thingy pick me, feel so lucky as they had over 400 entries, and so excited it was a Lucky Ducky win with Simon Says Stamp (still browsing and spoilt for choice)

Thank you all for your wonderful comments without them blog land would not be as nice a place.

Well think that is about me for today, should be back tomorrow with another creation hopefully.  Hope your all enjoying your weekend

Happy Crafting to You all

Hugs Kate xx
