Fathers' Day

In case you didn't know it's Fathers' Day on Sunday.
For me & my family it will be a mixed day as I lost my own Dad in February but still want my Father-in-Law and Husband to have a happy day, also for the first time my Daughter won't be there to take breakfast in bed to her Dad as she's in Cornwall at University.

The theme for this weeks Papercraft thread on Folksy forums is surprise surprise, Men, who (as we all know) can be difficult to buy cards and gifts for so hopefully this selection will give anyone who's not bought anything yet a few ideas.

First one from my DeesDesigns shop as we all know Dads are superheroes no matter how old you are.  
This one from Phoenix Projects is bold and colourful   
If it's a present you're after how about this beautiful artwork by Iain S Byrne Wildlife Art
This card by Crafty Mushroom is sure to make Dad smile
These lovely journals from Tara Winona art are ideal for Dad to write down his wish list
How about a card for the little ones to colour in for their Daddy this clever idea is from Clarkie Designs.
How about a card that can double as a Beer mat from Little Red Press, what more could a Dad ask for!
Diane's Decoupage has made this card for the Golfing Dads out there

So if you're still in need of a card or present for the wonderful Dad in your life then head over to Folksy, there's all this and much more to choose from.

    1. Thank You, it's surprising what variety you can see on Folksy

  2. Thank so much for including my colour your own card.
    I am so sorry to hear you lost your Dad this year. I imagine it will be sad day on sunday but hope you will manage to enjoy some happy memories,
    Best wishes,
    Emma (Clarkie Designs)

    1. Thank Emma, I'm sure on the whole it will be a happy day, just feels a bit strange only having to buy 1 present and make 1 special card.
