Early fathers day card

A lovely time was had by all at Centerparcs this week, I just love it there it's so relaxing :-) We went to the Whinfell site, the one with the red squirrels, I adore them, they are so cute! Where we were staying we saw two or three each morning right outside the door so I was well chuffed!

My Mum and Dad, who live in Kendal so only about half an hour away from Whinfell, came to visit us on the Wednesday. It was then it clicked that as they are going away to France for a month in their caravan (an annual thing now they are retired) on May 22nd I am going to have to crack on and make a Fathers Day card and also a birthday card for my Mum to send to them before they go.

After spending some time planting things in my newly dug over garden yesterday morning, I finally got round to doing some crafting in the afternoon. I don't know about you but I find it really difficult to find ideas for male cards? Girls' cards are just so much easier to make. I had a good trawl through my stash and found this Popcorn bear decoupage that I had got free with a magazine a little while ago. I thought it was perfect for my Dad who is a keen bird watcher (along with my Mum, so the decoupage would have done for either really!) I've teamed it with a blue card blank I've had for a while and used my trusty Cuttlebug to make a frame for the greeting.

Now I just have the birthday card to do, more about that later!


  1. Lovely card Alison. I like all the little birds. Glad you had a good time at Centerparcs, we are going in October! Kathleen x

  2. Hi Alison - your card is adorable - your Dad is sure to like it - especially with the reference to the birds... who doesn't like popcorn bear though!!! Sounds like you had a lovely time at CP. I love squirrels too - they are so comical!!!
