Fathers Day Wishes.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I am off to work again soon and leaving my hubby to sort the plasterer out.
Our landlord came last week and put the batons up ready in our bedroom and the plasterer is coming today to put up some special damp proof boarding and then a skim of plaster.
The lino man should be coming tonight too to do my bathroom lino, i have chosen a floorboards effect lino in rustic grey so am hoping it will look like a beach hut.
So enough of my waffle and on to my card which i am entering into the following challenges:
1.Allsorts Challenge - week 251 - All about the boy
2.Sweet Stampin Challenge - Doodles (i hope just a stamped sentiment is ok ladies)
3.Creative Moments Challenge - Challenge 39 - Anything goes

Before i show you my card i will let you all know where i got my Cheery Lynn step card die from.....i got it HERE from Dies to Die for.Unfortunately it is out of stock at the moment.

Products used are:
White card
Black card
First Edition Man made papers
Distress tool
Letraset fine liner for doodling
Woodware sentiment stamp
Cheery Lynn Step Card die
Cheery Lynn Hot Air Balloons dies (this time i used the other little bits that come with the die so you can add the patterned paper behind)

The hot air balloons.

and a sideways view.
Thanks so much for looking, it means a lot ;D
Hugs Nic.
