Happy Father's Day

Good morning all. A lovely sunny day here in Malta with temperatures expecting to rise to 30C today!! I would have preferred to go to the beach, but today being Father's Day we are going out for lunch all together. .. might go afterwards, but don't know yet.

Anyway, being Father's Day today I thought I would share two cards I made for this occassion.

This one I coloured with Copics and I did the background with a new ...Impression Obsession Cover-a-Card, very large rubber stamp that I bought from Simon Says. First time using it as didn't have a clear block large enough, but then I decided to try it without that, and the result was good!

My second card for today is for grandpa and this time I coloured the image with a mixture of Copics and Promarkers. I always forget the one set of copics that I have!

The DP is a real oldie from Papermania and I just printed the sentiment on the computer.

I would like to enter my cards in these challenges today.
