Happy Fathers Day :)

I know, I know this is a tad late but I've had a busy but fun day today with my children and Dad, I don't often get to spend Fathers Day with my Dad as I live 300 miles away from my family so today was very special. I havent been blogging for a while as I have a few personal things going on that have knocked me off kilter but I'm pulling through slowly. This is the first card I've made in a few weeks and i'ts what I made for my Dad, and features his Triumph Rocket III bike on the front (well not actually his).

I found covering the card I cut out from A4 into this shape difficult to cover in paper stock but this was my first attempt out of my comfort zone as I usually stick to rectangle or square cards to work with. I added a verse inside that brought tears to his eyes bless him

I think I need to invest in a new camera as the pictures are coming out burred!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges
Simply create too - Happy Fathers Day (or for a male)
 C.R.A.F.T Challenge - Fathers Day
Dream valley challenges - For that special guy
Fab 'n' Funky - Fathers Day

And finally here's a pic of my wonderful Dad and his bike and also of my Dad and me (with hair!!) when I was little
Love you dad your the best xxxxxx

I thought I'd also add a photo of my dad and my son leaving for the Isle of man TT races, My son had such a great time!

(If my Step mum saw her laundry all over this last pic I'm sure she would freak out hehehe)
