Hello my lovelies, hope everyone is having a good Sunday. I am really chuffed as just seen that I have made the Daily Talent Spot on Joanna Sheen's challenge blog. It is for my flower's and fairies card on the post below.

I would like to say HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to my lovely Dad today. He is such a great Dad and I feel so blessed to have him in my life. It has not been easy since losing Mum but he is always there for us kids and will do anything for us. 

I made a card for Dad. I have kept it pretty simple as Dad is a no frills type of guy!!!. He loves his gardening so thought this LOTV stamp would be appropriate.

I would like to enter the card into the following challenges;

CRAFT PUNKED - Father's Day
DREAM VALLEY CHALLENGES - For that special guy
WHIMSY INSPIRES - Button & bows
FUSSY & FANCY - Boy attitude
C.R.A.F.T CHALLENGES - Father's day
MY CRAFT SPOT - Special Dad
CARFTS 4 ETERNITY - Dashing Dad's

I know that this must be a really hard day for those who's Dads are no longer with us. I know I struggle on Mother's Day. You are all in my thought's and I am sending my love.

Thank you for stopping by and have a good Sunday.

Big hugs Clare xxx
