Flippin Men

Mens cards are so difficult to do and l was asked to do some fathers days card and as all my monies go to charity how could l refuse?  Cutie ones l can manage but requested was a mature card, likes western movies and beer - first thought was LOTV lasso boy but then mature - not really so had to go with beer. I forgot l had these flippin stamps which l bought at a great red
uced price then just put them away in a drawer - perfect for the job and customer was happy with the card too.

I should be at a card group tonight but OH is out golfing and that just leaves me the taxi driver to take son to cadets and pick up, so at least l can do a bit of catch up on here.

Stamp - La Pashe Flippin Men
Coloured with copics and prisma pencils
Papers - Colorbok (bought in America)
Corner - Hobby House

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Crafty Sentiment Designs - Fathers's Day
Secret Crafter 189 - Father's Day
Fab & Funky 125 Father's Day
Charisma Cardz 23 Male Cards

Allotment Diary - Managed to escape to allotment this morning for a few hours, my blog is my little sanctuary and my allotment my big sanctuary lol.  Planted 2 butternut squash, l have never grown these before so hope they will do well, l planted them in a bucket load of manure as they are hungry feeders. Also managed to tie half of the raspberries up, if l remember l will take my camera with me and add a few photo's on here.  The birds have been very cheeky in pinching newly planted cabbages and beans on some allotments, someone even had fleece over then which the birds pulled off.  The site is locked but we could do with a giant net over it all lol.

Thank you for stopping by and for all your lovely comments x Susan x

A perfect Fathers day card Susan.

We grew some butternut squash a couple of years ago and they produced no end of fruit, so hopefully your will do well, certainly there's no water shortage for the veggies this year.

Great Father's Day card Susan. Your colouring is fab!

We keep planting stuff at the allotment with the children and we go back and it's disappeared! Poor kids, at this rate they'll never see anything grown except potatoes!
