Father's Day

Hi all,

Finally got my Tomatillos and first lot of tomatoes out on the allotment today - after a busy weekend visiting OH's parents. I am now utterly knackered and wish I had tomorrow off work lol.
I managed to get a picture of my fuzzy little mousey today when I was cleaning him out also - here he is!

For my crafting challenge this week I made a Father's Day card - with the main idea being to enter in into the Ribbon Weaving technique at FB Crafting techniques.

I weaved a black polka dot ribbon and a silver ribbon together to create a background strip and mounted this onto silver mirri card, mounted onto black patterned paper. I then added a yellow motorbike topper, a winners cup and a #1 Dad speech bubble to finish the card off. I wanted the ribbon weaving to be the focalpoint of the card.

This is being entered into the following challenges:
