Fathers' Day with Thomas Kinkade

Yay!  I am back in the land of blogging and will be making my way around your blogs over the next few days to catch up with all your fabby makes!

Due to packing and unpacking of boxes I didn't have time to schedule this post so I'm sharing it today.  It's the Father's Day card I made for my dad who along with my mum spent Fathers' Day moving some of our belongs to the new house!

The decoupage sheet is Joanna Sheen Thomas Kinkade, Natures Scenes - Emerald Valley from Foil Play.
My dad has a lot of Thomas Kinkade pictures especially the Christmas ones which come out every year and look stunning so I felt sure he would appreciate this little masterpiece.

I have used Anna Marie Designs Kraft Card for the base card and layered the image on Anna Marie Designs green card.

The wooden spade which I have distressed with Tim Holtz Forest Moss Distress Ink and wrapped the handle with twine (from my stash) is from a pack of shapes from The Works, as are the hessian and wood piece.  I stamped DAD on the wooden oval using See D's stamps.  The leaves, peg and natural raffia are from my stash.

Creative Blessings. x
