the sky is the limit .................


 I hope everyone in the UK is having a great Diamond Jubilee weekend - we are.  The challenge at Papertake Weekly is to make a card for Fathers Day or for a man or boy.  You won't fail to be inspired if you pop over to have a look at the work by the very talented Design Team and you have a whole week to get your card in - there is a great prize too. A boy card for a change - it is a birthday card for my great nephew Jack - I used the gorgeous new image from Lili of the Valley and coloured it with distress inks. He's got two scooters, one at home and one at his Grandmas and a dog called Louis so it is just perfect for him! As it is a boy card I resisted the temptation to add flowers and instead added three colours of twill stripe ribbon, a scooter charm tied on with red bakers twine and a couple of red and white polka dot buttons - all from here
See you soon, Mary G x
