Happy Fathers Day to all the great Daddies out there!

Morning all and Happy Fathers' Day!

I had to make three Fathers' Day Cards this year: the obvious one for my Dad, one for Ben's Dad and also one for Ben from Sophie. Now he didn't get me a Mothers' Day card for my first Mothers' Day so I'm sure all my friends will be horrified that I didn't ignore Fathers' Day completely as payback, but what can I say, I'm just too nice!

So here is the one I made for my Dad:

and here is the one for Ben's Dad:

I used the fab sketch this week over at Mojo Monday to create this card.

And finally here is the one I made for Ben:

I used the sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday to create this one and also took inspiration from the Papertake Weekly Challenge this week which is 3-2-1 i.e to use three of something, two of something and one of something - I used 3 circles, 2 brads and 1 ribbon.

Hope you like them!


  1. I love your coleetion of Father's Day cards. I especially love the one made with the SSW sketch. I love the choice of colors. The brown and black are very striking together. Your papers are gorgeous. Thanks for joining us.

  4. Oh Niki wow you have been busy, I do love all your cards but my favourite has to be the #1 Dad. We don't have fathers day in New Zealand until the first Sunday in September. Love your colours and added embellishments. Great card and thanks for joining us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.

  8. All three of your cards are lovely. I am sure they all loved them. I agree with the old adage "Kill them with kindness"...so I would have made him a card as well. Your card for Ben is very manly and elegant at the same time. Beautiful job.
