Fabulous Friday - For the Boys

Happy Friday everyone.

Hope that your week has been a good one.

I spent some time in the garden yesterday - doing the weeding and I almost forgot that I had to get this post ready for today LOL!

Our theme for our Polkadoodles challenge, well with Father's Day not far off we figured it would For the Boys.

I decided to use an older collection - but still a fabulous one, Cherryblossom Lane Collection.

I took one of the scenes off an envelope in the collection, added a tree and some fencing (from the collection) and of course couldn't resist adding Horace.  

The actual scene is a river scene, but I just took a pale grey pencil and coloured over the blue, to make it look like a path :-)

For the inside I used the same papers as the front and added a message panel.

I cut the fences and Horace with my Silhouette Cameo and added some foam tape to give the card some dimension.

The little side buttons are from the ephemera section in the Frosted Winter collection.

So that's it from me today.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
