Fathers Day

Hi Everyone..........hope you are seeing an improvement in the weather in the UK. Can I also give a huge welcome/Thank You to new and older followers of my blog.................its so great to be able to read your comments and to then link in with your blog viewing your latest creations.

This is a card I made especially for my Dad on his 'special day'.  The frame is made from wooden coffee stirrers that I have obtained during visits to some worldwide coffee houses. They were bound together with metal wire. The  Sizzix TH die cut letters were rusted using the appropriate mediums available from Crafty Notions and some white vinegar. A metal foil sheet was adhered  to a piece of re-cycled cardboard and some Ten Second Studio tools were used to create texture.  I then punched holes on the centre piece and once again used the metal wire to attach it to the outside frame. A stamped hand and time piece were also added to this  creation, providing further interest. My dad was delighted and I hope you like it too.

I would like to enter this piece in the following challenges:

Hope you all have a great week whatever you are up to 

Annie xx
