Happy Father's Day ...

Hey Ya's!  Hope you all had a beautiful weekend and are now heading into a wonderful week!

Well, it's the final stretch for Bodhi's school year .. this is his last week.  OMGosh right?  Yup .. this little guy is growing up fast .. too fast and I'm not liking it one bit!  lol!  Why does the time have to pass so quickly?  :(  But one good thing is .. Summer vacation starts in a week .. and we'll have more time to do fun things!  :)

Also, Father's Day is right around the corner and I've made a very simple card using LOTV's "Set 52 Clocks and Cogs" and coloured around with Distress Reinkers.


I've also added some of my metal gears to the image to give it some dimension:


I really love these gorgeous vintage stamps from LOTV!

Also don't forget about the fabulous sale going on too!


Thank you so much for visiting me .. I truly appreciate it!  I'll see you again soon!

Big Hugs,
Elise

Brilliant card Elise. Loving all the textures and the arty feel it has. A real 'WOW' card! I am sure it even more amazing in real life. I said to my daughter-in-law, to treasure every day of her new baby. Because, before you know it, he will be starting school and then his first job!! I still think in my head I am 35!! Unfortunately, I have very funny mirrors in my home and they show me someone I don't know!!Hee!Hee!
