MDUC - Father's Day Card

I have been checking out the Magnolia Down Under Challenge and seeing all the fabulous entries and wondering, can I really pull off a Father's Day card with my Magnolia images. I knew it was going to take some thought and time, so I couldn't do it until I got a few of my urgent cards out of the way so I could relax and have a good go at it.

I used inspiration from a card that was given to me by Kellie and you can see that card here. I coloured the Magnolia stamp and the Penny Black stamp with ink pads and aqua painter and stampin' write markers. This card is extra special because it is for my Dad. He lives on a farm near Tamworth with my Mum and he loves the country. That is why I thought this background stamp would suit him. I tried to stay away from "girly" colours and only used blue, brown, green and yellow. I roughed up the edges a bit and used my favourite string that I am obsessed with at the moment.

Here is a photo of me, Mum and Dad when they came up to visit us at Easter Time. It rained the whole weekend so we went for a Day Trip up to Brisbane and visited the Museum. We spent most of our time trying not to get wet! But found this cute little organic cafe at Southbank and had lunch.

It is the Gold Coast Holiday here today so no school - Yipeeeee! It's a beautiful day too. Hope you are having a happy Friday. Thanks for visiting.
