Hi Dad

It is not Fathers day until September here in Australia/New Zealand so this is a little early for dad but it is better to get it done now rather than leave it to the last minute!
Following the designer drafts from Paper Smooches SPARKS
 and also making it a Fathers day card for The Pink Elephant, Top Tip Tuesday - masculine, Papertake Weekly - hello boys and Kaboodle Doodles - for your favourite guy ... I made a card for my Dad ... I didn't use a masucline image because I wanted to use the 'hi Dad' title so I made the farmer with pigtails to represent me!
 I made a little hanging sign for the title ...
and here is the farmer girl - I coloured and paper pieced her to create dimension ...
materials used - Smooth white and light blue cardstock; Simple Stories 'family ties' papers; Paper Smooches green acres and alphadot stamps; Staz On jet black ink; CC Designs grass die; MFT flat bottom clouds, woodgrain fence dies; Prismacolor pencils; twine.
Thanks for looking.
