A Father's Day note ..

Afternoon Folks!
Hope everyone is well. 
I'm just popping on to share the card I made for my Dad for Father's Day on Sunday. As usual lately it was a bit of a last minute effort, but it is in the post now so fingers crossed it should reach him on time! I usually use a sailing boat stamp or Penny Black dog when I make Dad a card but I realised as I looked through my collection that he had probably had the same images for the past few years. While I was looking for something different to use I came across this PB one which is called 'Things to do' which is super quick to colour. After more rummaging I eventually found a suitable text sentiment to add to Mr Mouse's notepad - the text and little stars are both from a Woodware stamp set called Must Have Retro Words. I went for a quick CAS design:

Here's a closer look:  

Papers are Forever Friends - Best of  British
Promarkers to colour and finished with Card Candi.
