Dream Valley #09 Father’s Day

It’s time for another challenge over at Dream Valley and this fortnight we want to see your Father’s Day creations. So this can be anything at all as long as it’s Father/Male related.

We are sponsored by two lovely sponsors this week

Untitled - 2

Also image have on offer a £10 voucher for their store

DV 09 Father's Day WM

I have used Time to Relax from our first sponsor. I printed it onto watercolour card and coloured in with a combination of whisper brush markers and distress inks. My paper is from a Prima pad, and the little frog and metal name plate I found in my stash.

If you pop on over to the blog you will see we have announced the addition of four new team members, and I should like to take this opportunity to welcome them. They are all very talented ladies and I am sure you will enjoy what they have to offer.
