Happy Father's Day - Lou Sims

Oh my! It would appear that me and Mr Blogger - always a 'Mr' when it goes wrong - haven't quite synchronised ourselves as you can probably guess when you take a look at my project below ... . 
This post should have been scheduled for last Sunday but somehow, it appears to be scheduled for tomorrow! So quickly, I have made the changes and am now sharing it with you all today

For my project I have used the new range of alphabet & frame stamps from Tonic Studios - Block Capital, Cursive Capital & Initial Frames to create my project. I have stamped and layered the different frames on to decorative papers, paper piecing the results. Next, stamping the relevant letters on to white card. The latter was then cut out and added to the paper pieced frames.

The 'Happy' frame has an addition layer to give the frame a 3D look however I stamped the day straight on to the decorative paper. I have added some star die cuts, heart punch shapes and complimentary Nuvo drops.

I love projects like this as I seem to keep bits of papers which really are not big enough to use as a background but are still big enough to keep ... or is that the crafter in me whom can't throw anything away?

Right off to check all my other scheduled posts ...,
