Get me... all organised lol

How's this then.. Fathers Day isnt for a few months and Dads card is all ready to go. Normally I struggle like the dickens to come up with something for him but this image just reminds me so much of when my sister & I were small.

Layout is from this weeks Friday Sketchers blog.

Coloured with a mixture of watercolour pencils & SU markers. The lolly sticks have been painted with some antique linen distress crackle paint (thanks Teresa) and I've used some shells and coral (my last bit from Grand Caymen, sob.. hubby take me back there please). Papers are retired SU and I've added some crumb cake ribbon. Computer sentiment and everything has been distressed with my SU gadget and inked with antique linen & frayed burlap.

I would say I hope Dad likes it but.. he'll either have the wrong glasses on and wont see a thing or if he does have the right ones he won't see the point of the distressed look. Either way he'll say it's nice then dap it to one side.
