Father's Day

It was back to work for me today! Yesterday it was a public holiday here in Malta which I really liked, even though we didn't go anywhere. Kids spent the morning studying for their annual exams and then in the afternoon they had canoeing with the scouts.

As for me, I decided it was about time I planned our holiday and took this opportunity to do it. We are going to Orlando this year.. woo hoo :)) We've already been there three years ago but we all loved it so much that we decided to go again and visit different parks that we hadn't last time. Of course, there will be some shopping for me too.. ha ha ..yes craft supplies .. you guessed.. I can't wait! I've been told on places where I should go by some blogging friends but any more tips and advice on where else to go would be most welcome ..Michael's and Jo-Anns here I come!

Anyways... here is my card for today.

It's another Father's day card and again I'm using one of Karen's images which I coloured with my promarkers. I did some distressing today... using a foundation sponge !!! woops :) .. well I think it worked out fine! What you think? and can you notice something... NO BLUE... I was so tempted to use it but this to fit another challenge and I like it this way now! Ow and the circled sentiment.. I did that on a Word document.

So here are my challenges for today.

2 - One Stitch At A Time Challenge No 16 - BOYS TO MEN
3 - Cards For Men Challenge No 12 - FATHER'S DAY
4 - Papertake Weekly Challenge No 42 - THE SKETCH.. this one here.

Thanks so much for looking today.

Don't forget to sign up on-line with both stores so you can print off a 40% dicount voucher to get your shopping started - there are two Michaels within easy reach of International Drive (one north and one south) both on Sandlake Road - no HobbyLobby in Orlando though.
