Fathers Day

Well Fathers day has been and gone but it has left behind some sunny weather here in the north west of England, it probably wont last though as I am off work for a week!! But I will make the most of it whilst it lasts. Here I can now show the Fathers Day card that I made (couldn't blog it earlier as my dad sometimes reads my blog). I was running late with it and didn't have time to take it to the post office to be weighed, so in order to get it there in time I just put 4 1st class stamps on the envelope, thinking "that should do it".
anyway I rang my dad to wish him Happy Fathers Day and he had received my card which he thought was very nice!! However he seemed more thrilled that the 4 stamps I had put on the envelope had not been franked so he could steam them off and use them again!!

So that is my Fathers Day Card which I am also entering into this weeks challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity where the challenge is dashing dads. My Dad is a huge model railway enthusiast, hence the train theme.
