Happy Fathers Day 2:

As I'm in the NT, I thought it would be nice to make a card for my Dad that was kinda cute and captured the humor in the top end. When I saw a card made by a lady I only know as CooCooKatchoo Mrs Robinson, I knew I'd found my inspiration.

I really like this card because first, it taught me that if I don't have the right stamp for a job, I can write - in my own hand writing, on the front of a card (HAPPY FATHER'S DAY). The second thing it taught me, was that SU have deleted the 1/4" Choc Chip Grossgrain Ribbon. Yes, I'm ashamed to say It's taken me til now to notice. Anyhow, I've used it in this card as it was just perfect to finish everything off.

* Wild About You Stamp Set.
* Choc Chip, Whisper White and Old Olive Cardstock. Summer Picnic DSP.
* Old Olive Stamp Pad.
* 1/3/8" & 1/1/4" Circle Punches, Choc Chip Marker and Choc Chip 1/4" Grossgrain Ribbon (retired, but I still can't believe it).

Love this card Nerine... definitely makes me think of the Top End!
As for the retiring of Chocolate Chip ribbon... I only found this out a couple of weeks ago too when I was sorting out my ribbon box! I miss it sooooo much!:(
