JAI #230 Just Add DAD and PPA#218

This weekend was Father's Day here in Australia, and Just Add Dad is the challenge for Just Add Ink this week. 
You can check out the great cards by the design team here.

This simple banner card was one of the designs I made for Father's Day this year for my stall at  The Handmade Expo Markets. I had forgotten how much I like stitching on cards - the effort of getting the machine out is really worth it!  Sahara Sand and the Champagne Glimmer Paper work well with the Hello Honey. I am also entering this in the Pals Paper Arts Challenge which is a colour challenge this week. There's a tiny bit of blackberry bliss in the fabulous DSP.

Here is another sample of the same style of card

My other Father's Day Card is the Tag Card, 
which is slightly more elaborate but definitely worth the effort. 
You can find the instructions for this on my blog here.
 It is the August 6th entry.

Thanks for looking, and I hope all the fathers in your life had a beautiful day, Liz
