Father's Day

Here in Australia, yesterday was Father's Day, so I would like to wish
Dads everywhere a belated Happy Father's Day. 

I could not be home with John, because it was the AGM at the Fort,
then I was on duty for the remainder of the day.
I know most card makers struggle with creating cards for men, and I am no
exception. However, I recently bought the ship, and anchor dies, so I
decided to use those for my card for John. I remembered that several
years ago I 'squirrelled' this fabulous paper away, so a little search
revealed it in my huge collection of lovely papers.
(Storing my papers in genre sections does help.)

Inside my card, where I wrote my personal message to John.

Close ups of the ship and anchor dies, used for the first time.
The cardstock I have used looks black, but it is actually dark blue.

Challenges I would like to enter
Daring Cardmakers - 'Travelogue'
The Crafty Addicts #51 - 'Anything Goes/ Boys & Men'
Try It On Tuesday - 'Take A Ride'

Dies - Kaisercraft Anchors; Simply Dies Sailing Ship
Paper - Graphic 45 
Ink - Distress Ink Rusty Hinge
Sentiment - peel-off sticker from my stash junk

Time to bring the washing off the line, so until next time, thank you for visiting.
