Time waits for no man!

I haven't made a card for a while but fathers day is coming up in the UK 20th June so I thought I would get a head start for a change. And it will come in handy for a couple of challenges too! Three Muses this week theme is 'Time' and I have missed participating so much but time doesn't seem to wait for any Woman either! lol I am also going to put this in for Tag it on the theme is 'Steam Punk' I am really loving steam punk projects! I probably won't qualify as it's not a tag (sorry but I wanted to show my support) you have had some fantastic themes these last few weeks and I have just had not enough time of late, keep up the fabby work hun.


The DP is just amazing! I could use it on so many projects! So I put this on some card stock, then stamped out an image and stuck this to some ribbon applied a charm through the stamped image and aged the whole thing with distress ink!


I couldn't stop there...... so I had a go at the inside too! the boys call their Dad 'Pappa Duke' don't ask I have no idea but i thought i would put this in the middle (I feel it really personalises for him from them) and then the boys can write what they like. They have seen the card and quite made up with it so I hope hubby likes it too! I am just thinking I suppose I had better make one from me and from our grandson, so maybe I am not ahead after all DOH! ;0) I just changed the font for this post as I think it adds to the steam punkiness Love Dawn xx

Items Used:- Design paper (DP) Graphic 45 & card stock Stampin' Up! Stamps, Paper Artsy & Artistic stamper. Inks archival & distress inks from Ranger. Charm & ribbon in my yummy stash!

Hi Dawn

Hope all is well with you, apart from not enough time of course, think we all have that problem.

Lovely vintage feel here and ideal masculine card.

Fabulous Dawn... SO glad to see you back here honey... I expect that a ribbon attached as a tag would look daft for your dad!!! So I will pretend it is there and thanks for your dream!!

I noticed that blogger had some new fonts you could use, but I didn't want to mess with the html. I do like yours, though. I also like your challenge piece. Steampunk is something I have yet to try, but I sure like your take on it.
