Father's Day cards

I am sorry I haven't been around blog land much this week. It is report writing season and I need to get them done by next weekend, so I will be back soon. I have two cards to share with you today. One is for my dad and one is for Steve from Meg. Meg normally makes her own, but she has had three A level exams this week, so that is what she has been concentrating on.
First up is Steve's card...
For this one I used stamps from Inky Doodles . I made a little scene with my ink dusters then stamped the ducks ( On the Riverbank set), rushes, leaves (woodland walk set) and the boardwalk (Great outdoors set). Two of thses sets were purchases from Stamp Magic earlier in the month. I coloured the foreground detail with promarkers. The base card was stamped with fern leaves from Inkylicious in cracked pistachio.
My second card is a little watercoloured scene for my Dad
For this one I used Hobby Art stamps - the Harbour Scene-it set and coloured it with Aquamarkers - I haven't used mine in ages, but always tend to reach for them when I use Hobby Art stamps.
As I have used stamps I am entering my cards into the Allsorts challenge this week, and also My ducks have wings so I am entering them into the Penny Black and More Challenge where the theme is wings. I have made a third Father's day card for Steve's Dad (His 95th father's day) but I have made a very similar one for a magazine article that won't be out until August, so I will share it then!
Thanks for looking!


  1. Oh dear choices Sal, I love the first with the ducks but equally the seaside scene on the second.

    Lovely to see you at both Allsorts and Penny Black and More, many thanks for joining in at both.

  2. Two stunners Sally, I love both of them especially the ducks on the riverbank. Good luck to Megan with her exams.

  3. Both lovely cards Sally. I love your ducks, they look like they're having a bit of a face off, lol. I take my eleven month old Granddaughter to the park on the days when I look after her and this is what we usually see. There's always a disagreement going on between the wildlife! Lovely seaside scene with the coloured cottages, just perfect x

  4. Two fab cards Sally, I do love your scenes. I have the harbour one unused I'm ashamed to say and I bought some more hobby stamps at Port Sunlight, they gave such lovely sample cards!

  5. Both terrific scenic cards Sally.

    Good luck with the report writing.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  6. Two lovely scenic cards Sally, my favourite is the seaside cottages.
