More Father's Day cards!

Today I had to rush and make father-in-laws cards as I needed to get them in the post to 'hopefully' get them there tomorrow! Yes I leave most of 'my' cards until the last minute!

So 1 gardening glove which was so much easier to do by printing the pattern straight onto the card!
I very simply decorated a small envelope to match to put the gift voucher in that we got for him.

and very quickly put this card together for him from the girls, no time to watercolour this one so simple coloured with the pencils.The last card for today is an order for Kim's (shop) sister who requested a card for a child whose christening it is at the weekend and is also his 1st birthday, could we some how combine the 2? Of course, one of my 2 fold cards with 3 panels, therefore the first panel is representing the birthday (childs father flys a jet) the wording is in the centre and the 3rd panel represents the christening. I had ordered die-cut aeroplanes and bibles especially for this card but unfortunately they haven't arrived in time, although they were posted 1st class on Wednesday, heh that's Royal Mail for you!
I've also made another baby girl tag card for yet another order from the shop, but it's the same style as the others I've shown so didn't think I would bore you with another!

There is a new challenge blog for fans Penny Black images the first challenge is tomorrow, I don't have any of these stamps myself although I love them, but do have several images from various swaps to hope to take part when I can. Here's the link http://pennybfriendssaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/

Off now to watch the first eviction on Big Brother, after the first couple of BB's we said we wouldn't watch if there was no one interesting, and every year we end up working everything around being able to watch it, how sad!! We'll even be watching it in the travelodge next weekend when we go away !!!
