Happy Father's Day!

Hello... I'm squeezing in another card before bed... LOL!! This is a card that I made for my daughter to give her Grandfather for Father's Day...  I let her choose one of the LOTV pre-coloured images from Art Pad - Vintage Boys. The papers are gorgeous and have lovely sheen to them... but it doesn't really show up in photos! :-(

Dies: Memory Box - 'Precious Hearts'
Nailheads - JosyRose

I've kept it quite simple ... my daughter likes Less is More and so she was very happy with it! and I'm sure my dad will love it... in fact I think it will make him smile as he has just got a new recliner that looks just like this... and the district nurse has told him to keep his legs up all the time, bless him!! :-))

Pre-Coloured Image: Art Pad - Vintage Boys

I was SO tired last night that I slept through the Neighbours party!  very unlike me as I'm a light sleeper!! but it did disturb my dad... so I've been bit worried about him today... he's been very tired. Is it peaceful tonight? No!! LOL - we have a Music Festival at a Park nearby and it is still going at 11.45pm...thump, thump, thump.... I'm hoping it will end at midnight... but they usually have fireworks!!!!!! so it could go out with a bang!!! Gosh this used to be such a peaceful neighbourhood!! We have Beer Festival at the local church in couple of weeks time!!!!!!! that was very noisy last year!! :-0
I hope you all have a lovely Sunday!
Take Care
Love and Hugs
