Fathers Day 19th June!!

Soooo - that means I have 3 cards to make... hubby, FIL and my own wee Dad.

I bought a new stamp from Stamp Addicts at the Art Stamp Craft Fair at the Corn Exchange in Edinburgh (along with some other goodies - welll would be rude not to). This was for my dad's card as he was an engineer in the shipbuilding industry for years, before it all started to fade away, but he still has a passion for ships.

Here's the card:

Isn't that just the most gorgeous stamp of a galleon? I think so!

Love this sentiment, just says it all really...

Image: Galleon from Stamp Addicts
Sentiment: Near the sea... - bought from E-bay, Fathers Day - Elsybells
Papers & CS: From stash
Medium: Distress Inks - Antique Linen & Brushed Corduroy
Embellishments: Card Candy, anchor charm and silver brad, gingham ribbon, black twine
