Happy Fathers Day

Morning Peeps, hope you are all well. 

Just a quick post before we head off to the in-laws.
This one is for my lovely Father-in-law.

My FIL collects Giles cartoons so I going to try and write 'Giles' on the front of the paper that the bear is reading (notice I've put the 'before' pic on here in case I muck it up!).
The stamp is Armchair Bear from LOTV (retired) and the sentiments are from Set 26 - Simply Sophisticated. The letters are stamped with a  See-D Typewriter set and the papers are from Trimcraft.

Love this Kat, those bears are so adorable, and a natural fit with those super papers! Brilliant. Hugs xx PS. Tell FIL that I get to pat "Granny" every day - we have a super statue in Ipswich near where Giles had his office.

Katrina, this is a lovely card. Such a clever design with the newspaper background. I love the really masculine theme with the hessian and buttons (and the mesh stuff which for the life of me I can't remember the name of)! ... and of course your image is gorgeous. Your FIL will be over the moon with this I am
