Daring Cardmakers - Special Thoughts

Hello everyone and I am back with my Friday posts with the team at Daring Cardmakers.

Its my turn to host the challenge this week and I wanted to do something special with my Dad in mind as in July he lost his 9 year battle to cancer.

I would like you to make a card in honour of someone special.  Perhaps a card to let them know you are thinking about them.

I made my card in honour of my hero, my Dad.

I love this suite from Stampin' Up! called Come Sail Away.  I think I bought it knowing how much my Dad would love it too.  I also love the beautiful sentiments contained in the stamp set.

My Dad served in the Royal Navy from 1962-1972, my brother also served and so did I.  I followed in their footsteps which made my Dad super proud of us both.

Sharing a few memories.

I love this photo as my Dad couldn't help himself he just had to help me.

This was taken the Christmas before I joined up.  My brother dressed me in his uniform.

Thanks for stopping by today and please head over to the Daring Cardmakers Blog for more lovely inspiration from the Design Team.

Daring Cardmakers Catch Up 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Hello everyone.

As my weekly Fridays challenge posts from the Daring Cardmakers were missing I thought I would do a little catch up with you today.  I am going to share with the cards I had made but due to my Dad passing away I just didn't get around to blogging about them.

I still love the fact that my parents have a drawer full of all the handmade cards I have sent them.  I think this has given me the push to share these missing cards with you.

So for the next few Wednesdays I will be sharing the cards I didn't blog.

The is the first challenge.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5

1 of something, 2 of something, 
3 of something, 4 of something and 5 of something. 

 eg. 1 image, 2 colours, 3 flowers, 4 brads, 5 gems

This was a tough challenge.
I used 1 piece of designer series paper, 2 stamped sentiments, 3 flowers, 4 leaves (foliage) and 5 gems.

To create the card I used a lovely stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Perennial Birthday and also Beautiful Bouquet for the flowers and foliage.

Please check out the challenges over at Daring Cardmakers.
