Happy Fathers Day Blog Hop

I hope you are enjoying our Happy Fathers Day Blog Hop, along with your favourite cuppa !  Today I am 'hopping' with fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia.  You may have joined me Sandra Roberts, here in the UK and I hope you enjoy our hop today.

Today's hop we are all featuring the theme 'Happy Fathers Day' and/or cards for the Men in our lives.

This is my first time creating with the Rooted in Nature bundle #148352(W) #148353(C) and as I don't have any close male relatives with us now, I have made one general card but in manly colours and one that the greeting can be changed. 
My first card was starting to feel like a Christmas card, as it is cold and miserable weather here at the moment and I have the heater on behind me in my Craft Studio.

The sentiment is very generalistic and can be used just to say ....
For my next card is used a different piece of Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper in the Suite #146338 and loved how the wood effect looks so realistic.

The spruce trees were coloured with Stampin' Markers, using Soft Suede for the trunk and a combination of Garden Green and Mossy Meadow for the greenery.

The Linen Thread #104199 just adds some nice detail under the sentiment from the new Itty Bitty Greetings #146664(W) #146667(C), in the new Annual Catalogue on 1st June.
