You're the Best

As anyone that follows my bog will know, I really struggle when it comes to making cards for family or close friends and it was certainly the case when I sat down to create a Father's Day card for my son to give his Dad.  I turned to my usual place to go when I struggle and found this card on Pinterest, it was pinned from the Docrafts site which unfortunately is no longer there!


My card is very slightly different but not much -  I left a couple of bits off, added a banner and computer generated the sentiment, I also decorated the inside and added a little verse.


Thank you for popping in today and thank you for all of the lovely comments that you leave, they are all read and much appreciated.

The crossword paper and theme is a brilliant idea for a Father's Day card, I'm sure it was well received ;)
Pinterest is a wonderful place for ideas...and a place to lose several hours if you're not careful.. I know from experience, lol :o)
