Happy Father’s Day – Skipping Stones Design Sketch 132

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. 
Today I have a couple of cards that I made for father’s day and a present for my husband.
The first card is for my husband. I decided to use the Skipping Stones Design Sketch 132.
I decided to use a label in the middle rather than a tag and added some twine and brads to add some more colour. 

Paper – My Minds Eye Lime Twist  Out of the Blue and Fly a Kite | Stamp – Paula Pascual | Twine – Donna Flower | Star Brads – Making Memories | Label – Spellbinders Nestabilities Label one | Star – Fiskars Punch.

The second card is for my step dad. 
I decided to keep this card more flat and only the stars are dimensional.  I used the same stamp as the other card as it is the only father’s day stamp I own and tried to keep it a little more simple. 

Paper – Basic Grey Max and Whiskers and Making Memories Just Chillin | Stamp – Paula Pascual | Border Punch – Fiskars Upper Crest | Brads – Making Memories | Ribbon – Hobbycraft | Star – Fiskars Punch.

Hollie and I also decided to make a picture for her dad and this is what we came up with.

I saw this mentioned on Bits and Clips you tube channel and thought we could try and have a go at this.
I wanted to do this outside so it took a while to get a dry and sunny day so we could get some nice photos.
We tried to chose some nice dresses for her to wear and I printed out some letters, to spell dad, so that Hollie could hold them.
It did take a while as Hollie couldn’t sit still and wanted to bounce on her trampoline but we got there in the end and I think it turned ok as the camera wasn’t the best and this picture isn’t doing it justice.
Hope you all have a good day.
