Dad - someone who carries pictures where his money used to be!

I am seriously thinking of applying for Mastermind - my specialist subject?? Houses for sale in a 20 mile radius of the A1,  from Darlington to Morpeth!!! We have been up and down that road so often that when we turn on the Sat Nav it says "A1 route again, is it?"
So, forgive me for being a bad blogger recently - thanks to everyone who has left a comment and I will try and get round to you soon ;-)


 I did manage to get into my craft room for 5 mins, to make a Father's Day card. But it  was only when I put it together that I realised I had coloured this guy's clothes the same as the paper-pieced chair!! Duh !!!
The image is popped up on foam pads, so it has a 3D look, and I added some glossy accents to the little coffee mug.

Allsorts - Paper Piecing/Piercing
Charisma - Male Card

Making Memories Clouds Die
Gems - Sticky Letters (coloured with a black Copic)
