FATHERS DAY {GDT Scrapping4Fun}

{GDT Scrapping 4 Fun}

What a lovely surprise when I was one of the Featured Artists for Scrapping 4 Fun Challenge no.15 and got invited by the lovely Rachelle to be a guest designer for them. Their current challenge no.18 is FATHER'S DAY using a Stamped or Digi Image. 

I used this cute image from QKR STAMPEDE which is called ALL TIED UP and can be purchased here.  

So with no further ado, here is my creation and please do not fall off your chairs as it is a differed fold card this time.  I might bore you from now own with this fold.  The sentiments are from Desert Diva. The image and sentiment were coloured with Copics and dry chalks.  The folded embellishments were created with squares. The design papers are from FabScraps and the brads are from my stash.

So hop on over to SCRAPPING 4 FUN and have a look at me featuring as guest designer as well as the other guest designers and their Design Team's gorgeous creations, and oh yes, don't forget to enter the challenge.

      How's the winter weather in sunny S.A.? We are headed into summer. Still can't get used to spending Christmas indoors instead of by the poolside or at the beach. I think it's one of the things I miss most :-)
