This card fits lots of challenges. Cards for men, CRAFT, Paper Cutz, Totally Gorjuss, Cupcake Craft and Stamptacular Sunday all have challenges to make a card for a man or a Father's Day card. My Time to Craft have 'Xtra special'- make a card for someone extra special. JUGs have a digi challenge which allows you to use digi papers. I also made the sentiment on my computer. (I really would love to get to grips with digi images but I have an inkjet printer and always end up with the ink running.) OCC have 'Gotcha cornered'- decorate the corners, which gave me a chance to play with my new Sizzlet die. And finally, the sketch is from Pink Elephant.

I took the chance to get this finished last night because teaching all day then writing reports since 4pm had given me a headache and I needed a break! I had done the paper piecing for the image and printed my papers ages ago. The papers are from a free download from Summertime Designs called 'Boy oh boy'. I love using digi papers for paper piecing because you can use photoshop to rescale them. As you can see, the backing paper and the chair are the same paper, just rescaled. I need to do another card for Dad this weekend because it is also his birthday on Tuesday and he will be 80!
