Bringing home the sun

Apologies for my absence from blogland but I've been ... on my holidays!!
This was the view from our hotel room in Tunisia ...

We stayed at the Holiday Village Manar; lovely hotel, good food, amazingly helpful, friendly & cheerful staff & lots of sun! We got home last Friday & we brought the sun back with us :)

A week later & we're back in routine, so last night I got my crafting stash out & made some Father's Day cards ...

I saw the moustaches on the cocktail sticks idea in a magazine, so I can't claim credit for that one! The moustache & chevron stamps were free with that magazine.

The third card is stamped randomly with the tie stamps from the 'Super Dad' set from Clearly Besotted. The shirt & sentiment are from that set also.

I'm going to enter the shirt & tie card into the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays where they are asking for creations using banners & flags.

I'm entering the 2nd card into the Just Us Girls challenge this week where they are asking you to use washi tape on your creations.

Yesterday I received my order of the new stamps & dies released by Clearly Besotted this week. Stephanie has some lovely sets in this release & I'm hoping to have a play with my haul in the next couple of days :)

Supplies used:
Stamps - Super Dad, Clearly Besotted; Moustache & chevron, free with magazine
Cardstock - Solar white neenah; all other Stampin' Up
Inks - all Stampin' Up
Dies - Super Dad die collection, Clearly Besotted; Fishtail flags, MFT Die-namics
Other - Washi tape, cocktail sticks, Baker's Divine Twine

Thanks for popping by & take care x
