Fathers Day Digi Freebie

Howdy Peeps!

I'm quite excited to show you this card today, I'm quite proud of it you see. Not because of any radical design or detail I grant you but because of what I did with the digi.

And what did you do? I hear you ask, well...

Firstly I played on my photo editing software to turn my monster's smile upside down (I needed a grumpy monster you see, for reasons which will become obvious when you see the card!) and then... I made my own digi stamp!! Oh yes fellow bloggers, that Father's Day sentiment is made from my own fair hand, no small feat for someone as technically challenged as I! My final triumph is that at long last I have worked out the difference between images, layers & selections on my software...Yay!! :D

So, without further ado let me show you my card, I doodled bags under his eyes and hairs on his stomach to make him look even more like my!!

For the freebie Digi in its unaltered state go to Pollycrafts here such a shame they've closed down, but then I've noticed a lot of challenge blogs have done so recently. For lovely clear instructions on how to write text in a circle go here. But if you want to use mine feel free, it's quite small so you may need to resize it to suit...

There are a few fathers day challenges on at the moment so I would like to enter my card for the following

Cards for Men - Fathers Day
One Stop Craft Challenges - Fathers day
Dream Valley Challenges - For that Special Guy


Incy Wincy Designs - More than one Digi
Craft your Passion - Anything Goes

I hope you like my card, and if you did please comment, it makes me happy! :)
