Inspired By My Dad

When I had my first look through the new Idea Book and Catalogue and came across the new Stamp Set 'My Friend' I thought of my Dad, I just had to have it.
My Dad is often found out the front of Church, welcoming everyone on a Sunday morning and again on a Friday morning as families are arriving for mainly music.
Now if you were coming into church and he hasn't met you before (or hes forgotten your name), he would welcome you by saying "Hello My Friend".
So I have made this card with Dad in mind, in masculine colours.
I have used Early Espresso, Soft Suede, So Saffron and Very Vanilla.
I have embossed the droplet Stamp, then I used bleach in my Aqua Painter and painted the droplets.
Its a long weekend here in South Canterbury this weekend.
We have been pottering around home doing odd jobs, today Paul helped me change my craftroom around, tomorrow I will be doing the finishing touches to it after a lie in, as tomorrw is Anniversary day, so if you are in South Canterbury enjoy the rest of the weekend and to the rest of the country you all have a great week.


  1. This is lovely Helen and the story it comes with. You are blessed to have such a Dad. Enjoy him.

  2. I love the technique you've used on the droplets - this is lovely card. You Dad sounds so lovely - I want to come to Timaru just for the welcome :)

  3. Speaking of bleached CS......hee hee hee. This looks so cool Helen. You Dad is a v v lucky man and I am sure you feel the same way about him in ur life. Cherish it all. ooxx
