Oldie for FFFFriday

Good Morning Thank you for popping in. I love to see your comments but I honestly understand if you're not able to but I do appreciate your visit
I am going to be so busy today. Firstly I must make this year's Father's Day card and get it into the post. I know he won't get it until Monday now but at least he'll receive one and as I don't get to see him very often, he will appreciate it  Better late than never! I won't be able to photograph it because now my camera has packed up and iPod needs charging! In fact this photo has been taken "off" my iPod. 
Where has this week gone? Talk about being rushed off my feet. I must get this dress I promised myself started too But the "shell" I made is too small so I've got to adjust the pattern before I cut into this expensive (in my eyes) material The house looks like a tip and must do some dreaded housework. 
As it is father's day tomorrow not sure of the plans, we'll probably go Salsa dancing tomorrow afternoon
Hello to AnnB from MWATT for joining the dance!

 This is my offering for Oldie for FFFFriday here is last years Father's Day card

I was lucky enough to win a cd-rom from Michelle Mogford-Jackson at Serif when I had an email read out on C&C. I printed the images onto Kraft card. I altered the sentiment, inked the edges of a 5x7 card blank, layered the image having roughened the edges with the edge of my scissors, embossed the "rivets! with a ball tool and rubbed gilding wax over the top. I then decoupaged the top hat, monacle and moustache.
Have a great week end everyone, see you Tuesday
Take care


  1. Hello Karen,
    This card is fabulous and would make a great man's birthday card. I keep wondering if I could use the Serif system, but don't know if I could. They say if you can cut and paste or push and pull - you can do it. Well I can't!!!

  2. A great Father's day card Karen, love the character. Thanks for joining me sharing an oldie this week. I know what you mean with housework, making things and socialising, some days there ain't just not enough hours in the day. Not to mention my failing energy levels, LOL.
    Enjoy your dancing tomorrow, it sounds like good fun and exercise.

    Hugs Erika. x

  3. I feel worn out just reading about your week on top of everything I've done and have to do!!!! No point doing housework you'll only have to do it again in a few days so go out and enjoy your salsa! Love how you have put this card together, sadly I don't have my dad around any more but he would have liked your card. Best wishes Jackie x

  4. Gosh Karen slow down lol! Take time out for yourself even just 5 minutes. Love the card, hope you have a more restful week coming up.

    Love & Hugs
