Rupert Bear

Good Afternoon all,

I hope you are all well and enjoying your Wednesday. I have been so busy today this is the first time I have sat down. I took the dogs for a nice walk this morning and then went back to the post office which thankfully was open today. Fathers day cards posted I set off back home to start on the housework while Charlie had his nap. We then went to a new play group session at the local Surestart centre. I have to say silly as it sounds I was really nervous. I hate walking into a room full of strangers but I forced myself to do it for Charlie's sake. It was ok a few people spoke to me and Charlie enjoyed himself until he fell over and bashed his head on a bike right at the end. I think I may go back next week. This evening I am off out to the cinema with a good friend of mine. Hopefully Charlie will be good for his Daddy. Anyway enough of my waffling I do have a card to share so here it is:

My other halfs Dad loves Rupert Bear, he has loads of the annuals so I thought this would be perfect for his Fathers Day card. The card comes as a printout from a create and craft website thingy. I printed all the layers onto card and set to work cutting everything out. It was a bit tricky sticking it all together but I got there in the end. I added some extra decoupage bits to the front and cut out DAD from a letter sheet that came with the printout. I then stuck some string to the kite and Rupert and then used peeloffs to add Happy Fathers Day. Luckily he is visiting on Saturday as I have no idea how I would have posted this one.

Anyway I am off to do some washing and will hopefully be back tomorrow with another card to share.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
