Relax and Put Your Feet Up

Good morning.  What a blustery night we had last night - I'm amazed the fence is still in one piece - anyone would think we were in the middle of Winter and not the start of Summer. I even had to put the heating on this morning - well I wouldn't want to welcome my bestest blogging buddy Claire to a cold house :o)
I'm so excited that Claire is coming to 'play' lol!!!! Hope yo have some photos to share later.

So a quick post before I have to go and tidy myself up and today I would like to share another Fatner's Day card with you.
This is for Aaron from my squidgilicious Grandson Oliver

 I love this Mo Manning image - King for a Day and it really reminds me of Aaron - he loves to put his feet up and take charge of the remote control - not that he gets much time to do that these days with Oliver now walking lol!!!
So On Father's Day I think he should 'relax and out his feet up'

I paper-pieced this really comfy looking armchair - DP'S DCWV 'Linen Closet' - love these papers
and teamed them with some Kraft card
Rest of the image coloured with PM's and FM's

To finish - some scrummy Grosgraon ribbon (bargain purchase from the Paperchase) with some button twine and a button.
