Simple fathers Day card

I've been meaning to make a start on Fathers day cards for a while so thought what better time than right now! I'm not sure what papers these are as they are just loose in my stash, I have a feeling they are DCWV. the card blank is textured cream card stock. The stamped verse is one I got from eBay a couple of weeks ago, really love this verse, I stamped this onto the same card as the card blank with sepia archival ink then distressed the edges inked over the whole thing with antique linen distress ink and inked the edges with walnut stain distress ink. I then layered up all the papers punched out the boarder with the cut lace trim punch and finished it off with a brown ribbon and bow.

Flower Power!!

I have a new obsession!! I'm kinda limited just for now as to how much crafting I can do, I'm getting too tired and in too much pain to be able to really sit at my desk for too long and be able to create anything time consuming so I have been playing around with these fabric flowers.

I am really enjoying making them and I think they look great, got a shabby chic look to them. I have got so much material that I've been wondering what to do with so I will have my own fabric flower garden before I am finished lol

out of my comfort zone

I've made a card tonight that was totally out of my comfort zone, other than the stamped image that I coloured with promarkers the whole thing is white!!!!!! I have tried to use different shapes and textures to keep it from looking too plain, I've used vellum that I've embossed, 3 circles that were also embossed, some die cut butterflies ribbon and lace to make this card. the image is a magnolia Tilda stamp.

I am entering this in the following challenges. anything goes spring is in the air anything goes white on white ribbon or twine flower power 3 circles pretty in pink

So my project.....I had to do some thinking on this one, I don't actually have a phobia as such, ok I don't like spiders, well not the little ones I can handle tarantulas just fine lol. I have a thing about shutting doors before I can sleep, but again it's not a phobia so I had a think, what in my life has scared me, has actually had my heart pounding and then I remembered........

We've all seen the movie IT with Pennywise in it, that clown freaked me out!! All clowns I am wary of...…
