Fathers Day Celebration

Happy Fathers Day 
Here's a card I made using one of Meljens designs for Whimsy 
Just like Dad
isnt it just the cutest image
 I  used loads of my stash for this one as my shed is a disaster zone after the recent weeeks crafting lol 
I'm  so busy getting things sorted out Im sure Ive forgotten loads of  stuff  Im supposed to have done but hey ho if it wasnt on my list  then tough
 I'm recovering from the Race for life today (well relaxing a bit before a busy week ahead ) It went really well  and  so far Ive raised my £50 target so Im chuffed to  bits. I think I will train a bit  next year and  try and  beat my time I may even dress up lol  
 Right Ive got to go get the next load of washing out and put it to dry crossed fingers we  get no rain today  :)

 Goodies used : Whimsy  digi ,copics e's,yg's mostly,dp  from stash  and embellishments from stash

Oooh fabulous sketch challenge on CDAC

......and its or very own Jak that is hosting it this month so check out the sketch  
  here's my take on it  
I've enjoyed distressing this one and using Tim holtz crackle glaze/paint on the image 
  Now the pic isnt the best as Im still breaking in a new camera  Im getting used to the mega amount of  pixels and all the functions ( not too techie minded with it as yet I need to read instructions properly).
I think Ive lost  the last 24 hours as Ive got a huge list (again of things to do)and the time has just flew by and still the list is huge
Hope fully I can catch up with things after the race for life Oh still looking for something pink(cant find anything to fit) at this rate it will be a pink feather in my hair lol  
 so  Im gonna get a cuppa and make headway on the to dooo's

 Catch ya tomorrow xxxx

goodies used cardstock papermill,distress inks, crackle glaze,justinklined image,button,brads,dp and twine from stash sentiment (no idea but its a clear stamp)
