Father's Day Nostalgia



No, I haven't totally lost the plot and gone all cute stampy, (mind you, after the horrendous week I've had and the week I have ahead, I wouldn't be suprised if all the outfits in my wardrobe should probably have those 'extra long sleeves with the nice secure back fastener' lol)
Still....whilst I'm still hands free, heres a little card I sent to my ol' Dad today for Father's Day. That little girl is my double when I was about 3. Infact I could have modelled for the stamp lol.

(please ignore the rather erratic balloon colouring as I was only having a play stamp/scribble, not intending to actually use it ...honest lol)



The stamp is one of a set from Penny Black (Betsy Bluebell) available from my LCS The Glitter Pot.

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY.

She is such a cutie and the balloon colouring is perfect - the white patches really make the balloon shiny and round
