Good Morning Ladies,
We had a rather overcast ☁️ day here yesterday, almost unbearably humid 😅, we were wishing for a decent storm to clear the air, we had a really heavy shower of 🌧 rain followed by thunder, we didn't see any lightning or anything and the whole thing paased quickly and left us with the same humidity as we had beforehand. I just hope it cools off before bed time as that is the one place I can't bear being too hot, or if there is no movement of air, we do have a fan in our room but I don't know about you ladies, I struggle to sleep with it on, the noise drives me nuts, the other thing is I find it really dries your mouth and nose out, so I end up drinking a lot of water and trotting off to the loo every hour! I think we are forecast more storms today so maybe that will clear the humidity a bit, I will say it's not as hard to deal with on holiday, mainly because we are beside the sea I think.
Paul asked me to make a card for his Dad for Father's Day, I haven't done one since my Dad died as it was always quite painful mentally. I said I would have a go though, I do generally help the girls make their's for Paul, they seem to manage fine on their own these days, My Mother's Day cards were amazing.
I wasn't sure what look to go for so I made a couple, the one pictured above and a Father's Day version of the Sepia Lighthouse card I made for a challenge a couple of months ago. I will add picture below...
The only thing I did differently was to add Happy Father's Day where the sentiment is on the card above.
Paul chose Sepia Lighthouse card, I thought he might, living where they do, they love anything coastal, I always find Lighthouses majestic and I suppose they guide boats safely through the seas, not dissimilar to a Fathers roll guiding children through life.
(When I was explaining this to Paul he just said...."except my head doesn't turn through 360°, although that might have been handy")
To make the card I used a piece of cheap copy paper and cut an aperture through which I stamped the sea, I then die cut some tiny clouds and put some low tack tape on them and arranged them above the sea, I used the same 'Broken China ' Distress ink to blend across the clouds to create the sky.
I removed the scrap paper and stamped the birds in Black ink. I die cut the Beach chair in wood effect paper and added a touch of shading, I placed that in front of the 'Seascape' and added the 'Happy Father's Day sentiment next to it.
To finish the card I added a mat of similar colour blue card and then adhered to a card base.
I will have to save this one for next year!
I can hardly believe that it's Friday and 'New Challenge ' day tomorrow, I do know what I am doing this week though, which makes it easier.
I hope that you all stay dry and safe today my lovelies,
Love and Hugs to all of you,
