WOJ Challenge *34*

First let me just apologize for being such an awful blogger!! The girls have been out of school for 2 weeks and my hubby has been working like mad! I don't know where the time goes!! And to top it off I still am getting that Internet Explorer has encountered a problem.... prompt when I visit blogs!! It is so frustrating and the view back is not working for me!! So hopefully this problem works itself out soon!!

Anyways, over at WOJ challenge blog this week Bev has given us a beautiful sketch to work with. I found these papers a few weeks back that I thought would be perfect for the WOJ summer stamps. They are so vintagey looking and have fruits on them! They are from Webster's Pages.
I decided to make a card for my Dad for Fathers Day. My girls told me it was too girly but I think it is perfect for him ~ I am his only girl out of 8 afterall!! I left the flowers out!!!!(LOL) Plus I am really a daddy's girl! My mom always tells me "Your just like your father!!!" I think it drives her nuts!! (LOL)

Papers: Webster's Pages
Inks: distressed inks, Twinkling H2O's
Accessories: button ~ daughters shirt, ribbon and brads ~ Micheals


Well thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope everyone is having a beautiful summer and enjoying the weather!! I cannot complain!! Have a great rest of the week-end!!

Hi Kathy - love the card, very pretty but those strong colours don't make it too girly so I'm sure your dad will love it (plus how could he not coming from his only daughter ;)) wouldn't worry about the blogging thing either - think everyone knows it has to take backseat over 'real' life - hope you're enjoying your summer with the girls. Hugs, Fran x

Hi Kathy, hope you're well although it does sound as though you're having a very busy time. Totally understand about the blogger situation, it's a nightmare, my probs are a bit different but everything seems to be broken on my blog. Hope they sort it soon too. Your card for your Dad is stunning, he'll love it. Gorgeous design and papers and your WOJ girl is so sweet and perfectly coloured. There are so many wonderful details I keep seeing, really beautiful. Only girl out of eight, my goodness, your childhood must have been interesting with all those brothers :). Hugs, Chris x
