Pixie Cottage #20...Guest Sketch or Father's Day Card

Note: My Wild Flower Patch Blog Challenge #18 is posted below my Pixie Cottage Baby Post:)



Hello and Happy Wednesday Stampers!

Time for another Pixie Cottage Challenge and as most of you already know, you have two choices! You can either make a card based on the sketch by our talented guest designer, Donalda Cox or you can make a card based on this weeks theme which is Father's Day.


My Father's Day card is for the nature loving type guy and my husband fits this description 100%. I also don't think that he would mind the flowers at least I think he wouldn't mind! *lol*



My image is designed by the Pixie Cottage's very own, ArTish and the name of my image is Robin's Nest. The design papers are from October Afternoon and the sentiment is by SU.
