Happy Father's Day

Hello you  , thank goodness it is Friday . Means tomorrow is Saturday . Michelle has her stall in Cairnes tomorrow so I will be hoping she is busy and  has many sales. Good luck Michelle ! Hope that the weather is kind.
 Have you a busy weekend ahead of you ? Maybe it's  a movie or fancy dinner out or is  planning to finish some home project on the agenda for you?
Nearly the end of July ! Blimey the year is just flying by . I was thinking after last night's male card that Father's Day is just around the corner .
This card , inspired by Shirley .....lovely name that , .. Henry, NSW,   is in the current Readers' Gallery of Cardmaking , Stamping & Papercraft. I have changed  the colours and the images but the idea definately came from her card .

Cardstock ;  Mello Moss, Creamy Caramel and Whisper White .

The White card layer is divided into 1/4s    masked  with strips of paper . Using a Stampin' Pastels I sponged  the four colours  into the separated  1/4s .  After stamping the images from Voila la Carte and cutting them out I adhered them as shown with Stampin Dimensials . The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments . I used Markers to add a dash of colour . The little coffee beans at bottom of card are from a 'Judith ' stamp.
Before layering onto Creamy Caramel , I sponged the white edges with Basic Brown ink ,
Creating a card for a man is always a challenge but I am pleased with this one as I know some one who
does not play sport or fish or reads but who loves his coffee and lunches . Maybe you do too?
        Any way thank you staying right to the end and hope you like the card.
                          Cheers Shirley-anne
