A Dad Day Card

The first Sunday in September is Father's Day here in Australia. Now, I struggle with 'man' cards at the best of times, which is why there are only two Father's Day cards in my madeit store at this at the moment. I'm being made to step out of my comfort zone though with a few custom orders for male cards, so stay tuned!

I'm pretty chuffed with how this one turned out even though it just seems tooooo simple and 'clean'. LOL But that's men for ya!

And inside...

Now to balance this post with a bit of girly. A Holy Communion card.

This one I'm also entering in Extra Challenge #3 - over at Card and a Half.

My Beautiful New Flowers

I have discovered a fabulous American website with THE most gorgeous fabric flowers, Shabby Flowers. Cheap as chips and so is shipping, pop over and have a look, you won't be disappointed, especially with our dollar the way it is.

Now have a look at what I have created with one of their fabulous creations.

And a close up.....

Isn't it fab?

And lastly, the inside of the card (sorry, but I think the sun disappeared about the time I was taking this one so it's a bit dull, but you'll get the idea).

Now, I haven't done this for a long time but I'm entering this card in Extra Challenge #3 - over at Card and a Half.
