Father's Day at Oh La La Creations

Morning again my friends, I am here with my DT card for Oh La La Creations...CH#158 - Father's Day.

Using - Every Day Occasions

Most of my friends know that I started crafting, after I lost my Dad to Cancer in 2005, he never received a Father's Day card, made by me!..those off you who have followed my journey, will know that he was a Painter and Decorator to trade, and as a young girl, our house, was painted with the Seasons.  I think in a small way, I go my love of colours and colour matching from my dear Dad...so DAD this is a card for YOU...I will place it on my Mantle piece on Sunday, in celebration and honour of you.

Our DT as always have been very creative, so if you are looking for some more inspirations, pop over to our challenge blog here.
