Lazy Afternoon


Well i hope we that those of you with Dads, were spoilt rotten on Sunday -  H and I bought my OH a box of chocolates (which H decided to find and eat on Saturday !!) and we went to The Weald And Downland Museum, where the boys did welly throwing, played pool and golf and OH drove a tractor and tasted the homemade cider - fortunately it was a lovely day.

Although today's card is for 'Father's Day' - i decided to start early for next year, as this will be one of the ones i will send to the troops.  I decided to use a stamp, that i have never used and papers i've only use once before, i thought it would look good with some kraft card and twine.  I have TRIED to also add some clouds, using my Whimsy cloud die and distressed inks and it came out ok, i think !!
