Love ewe,Dad!

At Just Some Lines the challenge is Anything Goes this fortnight.Only projects made with Just Some Lines images can be entered.But the good news is there will be a freebie image posted on the blog for the duration of the challenge for you to use!Just pop on over to Just Some Lines to find out all the details.While you’re  there don’t forget to get inspired by the DT’s creations.

I decided to go with a Father’s Day card.For this I’ve used the delightful Emo Aleks Shepherd by Just Some Lines and coloured him using Copic Ciao Markers.I’ve teamed him with some Forever Friends papers.I’ve added some buttons and faux suede strips.I also threaded some of the strip material through the buttons.That was some mean feat,I can tell you!!So after realising a pokey tool would be useful and choosing some carefully selected words the deed was done!The sentiment was devised by me and printed from the ‘puter.The idea behind this card is that my youngest son loves sheep/lambs ever since discovering that was his sign in the Chinese zodiac.It’s also quite funny that when he was a baby his most favourite bedtime snuggle was a lamb.He loved his little ‘lamby’ so much he used to cuddle it then roll over with it.In the morning we would find this rather squashed and flattened but so well loved object.It never failed to raise a smile 🙂 The other thought,and hence the wording,is to do with thanking his Dad for all the help and support he has given him to shape him into the lovely little boy he is today.My son looks a little like Aleks too 😉
