Father's Day

Oh dear, it has been more than 3 months since I last touched my blog, and
I guess I have no excuse other than to say that 'life' has intruded (at most 
times) more than I would like......
John's medical negligence claim is taking up so much time; I have taken
on extra responsibilities at the Fort; and I am having investigations for an
episode of significant chest pain. The one very bright spot has been a
wonderful visit last month by our son, Craig and little granddaughter,
 Scarlette, who both live in London.

Here in Australia, last Sunday was Father's Day and this is the card I made for John.
It was so much fun 'playing' in my craft room again, and I have also managed to
make a few Christmas cards (I have yet to photograph them).

I bought the background script stamp at a retreat several years ago, and I am
ashamed to admit that this is it's first inking.

Shame on me again....this stamp is part of a set that I bought at 'Ally Pally'
in London many years ago, and it also has never seen ink before.

Inside the rather large card.

I love this die-cut from a pair of dies I have had for ages (and used often).

Stamps - Car from an un-named set of clear stamps for men 
             - Background Script from Darkroom Door
Inks - Versafine Vintage Sepia; Versacube Sand
Dies - Marianne LR 0198; Memory Box Mini Gears
Sentiment inside card - computer generated
Greeting sticker is from my massive collection
