Good morning everyone, hope you're all enjoying a fabulous weekend.  Time for another fortnightly challenge over at Magical Crafts today  Big thankyou to everyone who took part in the last one.  This next challenge is..

"Something for a Male or Fathers Day"

With Father's day fast approaching on the 20th June this would be the perfect opportunity to make something for a dad in mind.  However, it doesn't have to be for a dad it could be something for a male in general.

Here's what I came up with......even looks a bit like my dad - only rounder lol

Our sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear Stamps.  They have so many wonderful digital images, kits and papers etc .. to choose from in their store, probably just about something for any occasion by a number of awesome artists. The lucky winner will receive a selection of  superb digi papers and three digital images.  You can check out the details on the challenge blog here.

I have used one of the images up for grabs and the blue papers are also included.  I have combined the papers with some paper and card from my stash.   I used copics and promarkers for colouring.  The sentiment was done on my laptop.

Thankyou for taking the time to stop by, I really do appreciate it.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Great card Mel he looks as if he has just had a huge Father's Day lunch and has settled down for the afternoon. I like the way you have used the white pen, something to try out myself :)
