Clearly Besotted Best Dad

It's Tuesday so that means it's time for a new theme on the Papertake Weekly Challenge 

Something For The Boys




I love shaker cards and think that this turned out particularly well. My Dad wouldn't be into fussy and  fancy cards but I think this will give him endless hours of pleasure    lol ,,, only joking ;-) 

I didn't want to just throw the die cut circle away so I made a quick and easy tag, his gift will be a nautical themed T shirt and swimming shorts set for when he comes here for a holiday at the end of this month. He never reads this blog so I know the secret is safe ;-)


I also made a quick and easy card using the same set. I used the MISTI tool for the stamping and LOVE it! the boat and sails needed 2 inkings and I would never have got them lined up so perfectly


We are sponsored by The Hobby House so a fab voucher is up for grabs!
