The Greatest

Good Morning 
My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors 

Well not speak to soon but the SUN is SHINING, dare I think summer is
finally here??.

How are you all today, I trust in fine spirit and going to make the most of
the day.  I will be crafting along with Mary as Thursdays our crafting day
and catch up and I really look forward to seeing her.

So therefore  I will have a quick post today ( I hear you- thank goodness)

I am again showcasing another one of Emma's fabulous  creations
from Delightful Digi Images and this time its for Fathers Day.

It was a lovely image to work with and I think so different from the 
normal Father's day images.  If you pop on over to Delightful Digi Images
you will find some very great images to purchase all hand drawn by Emma.

Just click HERE and you will be taken to the site where you can have a
nosey around. ENJOY.


1. Using an 8 x 8 card I matted kit with gold mirri board, then
       I embossed blue card with the Hessian embossing folder from
  Sheena Douglas and adhered this on top of the mirri board.

2. Next layer  was a 6 x6  paper that came from goodness
know where( I have a few pieces that are not sealed
together and been in the draw years) but I thought
it complemented the image perfectly.

3. Sue Wilson Tags dies came next using a striped paper
and I placed them randomly.

4. The image was coloured with Copic markers and distressed
around the edges with T.H Walnut Stain.

5. Using the Tonic die (With Love)  and the largest die I cut one
in navy card, a plain one in blue card and finally the image
using the next size down patterned edge die.  I matted
them altogether using foam pads and placed into the
centre of my card again with foam pads.

6. The sentiment was created by using the smaller of the With Love
die and the alphabet dies from Tattered Lace cut out of navy
card and again I have used the same ink to distress the edges.

To complete I added blue dome stickers to each corner and there
you have it a great fathers day card.

Sadly my dad passed away 27 years ago and I still miss him, as he
was my world and times like this really bring it home how
much he is missed.  So although he is not here, this card is
still dedicated to him.

Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
