Father's Day/For the Boys!

Wow, can't believe I haven't posted anything on here for a week! I started a new job this week and after being a Stay at Home mum for the past 9 years I am finding myself rather tired of an evening! So I am not getting anything extra made! I'm hoping after the school holidays I will have been used to the hours and can get back to crafting more often!.
So it is time for a new challenge at Craft Your Passion and this weeks challenge is Father's Day / For the Boys. This week we are sponsored by Just Some Lines.

I used Papa and Son Bear Fishing! I coloured it in with tria markers. Unfortunately the boat didn't turn out how I had seen it in my head. I found the embossed blue card stock in my paper stash, mounted the image onto some red paper, then just added the buttons and fish!
Not sure if I will use this for Fathers yet as my Dad is definitely not a fisherman so it may end up being for a boys birthday card!. 
I look forward to seeing your creations for our challenge this week at Craft Your Passion.


  1. This is just lovely Alethea !! I love the rich reds/blues you used and the shading on the boat. What a great card to give or receive.
