Dad, clocks and a drunk frog

So..... heck of a week in the Sparkly household. Bit tough emotionally- sorting out lots of things about my Miss Little Legs' move to a new school in September, plus lots on at work, the last episode of Game of Thrones (oh how I lurve that show), and the last couple of days have seen an annoying bout of ill health :( I've managed a couple of crafty things this week, but really only the must-makes, nothing extra. Along with the rest of the country, I've been making Father's Day cards.....

This one is for the faux metal challenge at the Stampotique Designer challenge blog. I finally read the label on the dull brown tub of embossing powder I've had in the drawer for an eternity. Turns out it's copper! Hurray!!

Ooh and I promised you a drunk frog too.....well, maybe tomorrow....

I'm also entering this into
 the Papertake weekly challenge- Hello boys
Crafty Cardmakers- Fathers Day


  1. What a lovely card! Thanks for joining us at the Stampotique DC. XOXO

  2. I really like your card, Lisa, especially your fauz metal in copper. Glad you got it out and read that label, because the result is just amazing! Well done!

  3. Colour me disappointed, what happened to the drunk frog!!!! LOL

    I love your card, and what a thrill to discover what you thought was dull brown was in fact a lovely bright copper. Your bp matches your stamping really well and of course the hare is the perfect image to use, and you aren't even late!

    Thanks for sharing with us

  5. Fabulous card, especially as you aren't feeling well. I think the copper embossing looks amazing and the march hare image is great. I hope you're feeling better.

    Hold on you promised a drunk frog? I'm going to come back to check now!
