We're honouring Fathers at Isabella's

Hello friends... we're honouring Fathers at Isabella's this week, which is great as Father's Day is being celebrated here on 20th June.  Not too difficult a challenge is it!   I am still very fortunate to have my Dad around.

Please visit Isabella's Sketchbook for inspiration by our fabulous design team members. These ladies are so talented, I am constantly being challenged to up my game ...  here's my interpretation, I hope you like it...
The image is Saturday in the Garden and can be purchased from Isabella's Boutique.  The base of my card is navy. The red gingham I purchased from the Scrapbook shop yesterday, as well as the blue spotted paper. Estelle has a pad and you can tear out the sheets you want, so I don't have a name for you, sorry! Pity I only took 1 sheet of each as I really love these.  The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly - yay! my order finally arrived. Let me tell you, Cuddy Buddly's service is amazing. My first order never arrived and without any hesitation Alexander sent me another one, and added a gift for my trouble. Now, isn't that service?

Added some glaze to the flowers, leaves and gardening tools. Further embellies are flowers from my stash and a pearl in each corner.

We'd love to see what creations you come up with this week.  2 free digistamps and the I Won badge are up for grabs.  See you later. hugs Sharon x
