Magnolia Down Under 'Father's Day' Challenge
This weeks challenge at Magnolia Down Under is to make a father's day card. I have cheated a bit as we had father's day in the UK in June so I made a card which I used for my hubby's birthday. I have used Tyrolean Edwin again - I love this stamp and some Basic Grey papers and I have added Liquid Applique to make the beer 'frothy'.
We had a great week in Wales and the weather wasn't too bad at all, we managed 3 days on the beach and I even had a swim in the sea!! I am hoping for some more good weather so I can get through the mountain of washing!Supplies
Stamps: Magnolia - Tyrolean Edwin, Stampin Up Sentiment
Tools: Copics, Brads, Liquid Applique, Corner Punch
DP: Basic Grey

Hi Andrea, I know the feeling of fitting into all those clothes one could not wear for quite a while. I nearly lost 9kg's now and fortunately I usually only buy classic clothing that's not seasonal and I have not thrown the too small clothes out, so now I have like a whole new cupboard of clothes to wear. One can take anything off the hanger it fits nicely, so I know the feeling.
