Happy Fathers Day

As always I have made a card for my Dad to celebrate his special day and it is perfect for this month's challenge at Penny Black Saturday Challenge which is Boys, boys, boys.  This is also my card for week 15 of the 52 cards challenge, the theme was All Creatures Great and Small.

This is the first time I have used this Penny Black stamp despite it being in my collection for over a year - yeah I know bad me!!!!!!!

The papers are from Wild Rose Studio and the scalloped edge is a Sizzlet border die.  The sentiments are by Personal Impressions and Stamps Away.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and highlighted the headlamps with glossy accents.

I will be going to visit him later clutching a bottle of his favourite sherry!!  Quite a few people have recently asked me for an update on the cochlear implant - things are going really well, he has already been discharged by the speech therapist as he has reached the 9 month level in 3 months.  He is still attending the clinic at St Thomas' Hospital monthly for adjustments, but already he is hearing so much more and the other day he recognised me on the phone - our first phone conversation in about 20 years!!!  I also got given a very special look the other day - I was packing up my sewing after spending an evening at his flat - he could hear my bag rustling over the top of the tv - LOL if looks could have killed I would be flat on my back now!!!!
