Simply Create Too Challenge 15 MIDWAY EXTRA - Dad's / Father's Day

It's time for the Midway Extra over on Simply Create Too.  Our current theme is

Dad's / Father's Day

And you still have just about a week left to enter the challenge!

I've used another Gordon Fraser image which I bought from CraftsUPrint and then coloured with Promarkers.  I've made a wordbook from sheets of acetate, cut out the letters and then embossed them with a Cuttlebug folder.  It actually spells fifty in case you were wondering!

I made the bunting with offcuts of the silver card and little letters from my Baby Face Cuttlebug alphabet dies.  I think making wordbooks are my favourite - they are pretty easy to make and look great plus you can really embellish them - much more than a regular card!

This isn't for my husband - he likes 4 wheels - but its for a custom order!

Good luck with the Simply Create Too challenge!  Pop over to the blog to find out more and how to enter.
