Fathers Day by Sébastien

Good morning to you all. The card I am featuring today is not one of mine.  My nephew was here last week with his children and 9 year old Sébastien decided to make a card for his dad for Father's Day.  Darren had to be kept out of the way so he didn't know what Séb was up to.

Seb's Card

And this is the result.  Since this was only the second card he has ever made I think he did a great job. He chose the the car image from the LOTV Art Pad because his dad has just got a new car.  The scrap of striped paper is from Papermania Capsule collection. He enjoyed using the Grand Calibur and he even used the guillotine - whilst I was filled with great trepidation!  He was warned never ever to touch it if I'm not there  but  I think it might have to get put away whenever he is here ... lol!   He typed the sentiment himself and also the label which he glued to the back of the card.  I think there will a happy dad on June 15th!

It was so lovely to have them here and we certainly missed them after they left on Sunday. The house is soooo quiet!  Ah well, I'm sure they will be back in the summer holidays.

Hope everyone is keeping well.  It absolutely poured with rain the entire day yesterday.  Come back summer!!!
