With Love On Father's Day

Good afternoon. Long time no post - I have been 'busy' enjoying all the Jubilee Celebrations as well as having a wonderful few days with my scrummilicious Grand-daughter Lola Arizona (lots of photos at the end of this post).
We have also been busy planning what we are going to do with the back garden - somethinhg John 'talks' about on a yearly basis - but this year we have gone a step further and priced all the materials up and organised with Jamie and his friend to do it - so fingers crossed this is the year it will be all be done for the summer :o)

So with all that and lots of DT work behind the scenes I haven't done much to share until this morning when I thought I best make a start on some Father's Day cards.

This one will be for Lola to give to her Daddy Jamie :

I have used this fabulous image from Mo Manning - Father & Daughter - just perfect :o)
