Moving Along With The Times 'One For The Guy's' Challenge

Good morning all, I hope you are all enjoying these few days of beautiful weather we are having at the moment. I have so enjoyed being able to get out in the garden, seeing and listening to all the bird's is so relaxing.

Well, it's Thursday again lol and that means it's time for another challenge at Moving Along With The Times and this week Carole has set us the challenge of 'One For The Guys'. So with Father's Day ahead of us and I am sure so many male birthday's it should be a fun challenge.

I have made a card that I thought my grandson could give to his dad for father's day unless someone comes along for a male birthday card in the meantime! I have used Sassy Cheryl's 'He Is Loved' image, which is so so cute  look at that adorable little face lol. The image and mat layer have been cut out with my Cameo. I have teamed it with Papermania's 'Happy Days' papers which I think are great for boy's cards. I added the die cut border and little tag which I also cut on my Cameo and then used the sketch pens in the machine to write the dad wording. I have attached the tag with some twine which I actually brought from Let's Create our sponsor this week.
