Well in the UK today it’s a special day, Fathers day and I have a wonderful father who is kind, loving, strong, hardworking, entertaining, funny (with the best stories……) and an inspiration to me.

I made a card of course which I will share with you at the bottom of the post, but these links are  for my Dad’s entertainment and any other special men in your life, so please share them.

A lawnmowing bicycle     and another

A tall bike

and finally

A table made from a bike

The links are all via    Dudecraft  a website with the most fantastic creations alongside the weird and wacky!  I hope they bring a smile to your face.

And some wonderful F1 at Monaco  For me as much as you Dad, Senna at Monaco 1990 !

So onto the card a square Z fold  12″ x 6″  scored at 3″ and 6″ in Close to Cocoa stamped with my new background stamp Sanded in Chocolate Chip.  A mat of Chocolate Chip 4″ square, with a 3 3/4″ Taken with Teal Square and a 3 1/2″ Very Vanilla Square onto which I stamped part of the clock face on taken with Teal ink.  Using a sponge dauber I edged the card with Taken with Teal ink and swiped over it all with Stampin’ Pastels.


The middle section has a little square of  Close to Cocoa card stamped using the Dad stamp from the Greetings eight stamp set from the mini catalogue in Versamark and heat embossed in gold, our Stampin’ Up! gold embossing powder is a really rich antique gold perfect for this card.  I cut it out and matted onto a chocolate Chip layer and then onto Taken with Teal.


And the final section inside is a square of very Vanilla with the edges of the cogs stamped in Taken with Teal ink then matted onto Taken with Teal card and a Chocolate Chip layer.

Happy Fathers Day
