Some Odd Girl Challenge 5 at SNR Card Universe

Morning everyone!

Just thought i would share my little cutie I made for this challenge, the challenge was to use floral papers and I couldn't resist in using 'Bed time Mae' she totally reminded me of myself especially adding the sentiment LOL. To me she looks like she is thinking so i added the sentiment as a thought bubble to give the card a bit of playfulness.

I bought the ever so cute digi from Some Odd Girl and as soon as i saw it i thought of me and dad granted when i was younger i was a very much a daddy's girl helping my dad tinker about with lorries and generally doing boy things rather than girly things it explains a lot why i'm not really girly LOL omg what am i like today i'm going off on one and sticking to the plan!LOL I've gone for 'we nutty heart u dad' as i thought i would keep in the squriel theme and it's a bit different from the normal father's day setiments too and whilst i was thinking outside the box i thought 'heck why not do a obscure shaped card?' and here you go!


Papermania - Cardstock and Hampstead glazed and glittered papers (yummy sparklies!)
Digi - Some Odd Girl - Squirelle Love
Brads, Scrabble Letters (i thought of these as they look like wood you know where squirrels live.... LOL) and Heart from stash
Promarkers - Caramel and Denim Blue (2 Colours you say is that all?! Yes i am learning the way of the promarker!)

Some Odd Girl Stash Challenge 4 - Make it Shimmer (used glazed and glittered papers to give a subtle effect without being girly!LOL hopefully you can tell by my photo!The light is no good today in my house!)

Hopefully my dad will like it, its definitely not the 'norm' of a father's day card but then i'm not them norm either!
