Double Challenge Father's day card!

Well this is the other father's day card that I have made, this time it's for my FIL. I am entering it into this weeks Stamptacular Sunday Challenge which is themed 'fabulous fathers' and also Secret Crafter Saturdays challenge whose theme this week is 'in the jungle'.

Well yet again I have dug out my stampendous birthday changuito stamp, this one has definately paid for itself!! Lol! Coloured with distress inks. I have paper peiced the central sentiment which is from a hero arts set. The CS is coredinations, run through swis dots folder and distressed with brown ink and the paper is BG Arahic. 'Dad' was created on my dymo machine, brads from my stash. I cut out the image with my curved rectangle nesties and matted it onto Coredinations CS after watching Bev's tutorial. Thanks so much for this Bev!!

Well not a great start to the week for me. I was really unwell last night with severe abdominal pain so went to the GP with it this morning. I have been suffering with it for years really and it comes on every few months. Turns out my GP thinks it's a grumbling appendix and has referred me to a specialist at the local hospital. Still feel a bit off it today, but at least the pain has subsided. An early night for me I think!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by!

Hugs, Vicky -x-
