Good morning all what a lovely week we are having here with the weather being so nice and bright, I jut wonder how long it will last!
Today we have a new challenge for you at Crafty Sentiments Designs and it is to create something with a 'Father's Day' theme and as you will see I went with something completely different from my normal style.
I had had a request for a father's day card for a Scout Leader and it really daunted me until I put on my own old Cub Scout Leader head (yes I used to be a Cub Scout Leader until I took on this new mode of transport and it became a problem lol). I thought about all the time we spent out in the woods going for long walks and camping and this is what I came up with. Charles Bear - Going Camping was just perfect for the scene I created.
I cut the tree from Pooh & Friends cartridge at 4", the grass was cut 4 times over from Plantin Schoolbook at 1". I then used the waste from the green layer of the tree as a template to create the clouds by inking. I made the flag pole from a cocktail stick and then cut the red triangle and hand wrote the sentiment before heat embossing it in white.
