Stamp Something - One for Dad
THe challenge at Stamp Something is black, white and another colour. I have seen alot of cards for Dad's on the blogs lately I think it is Father's Day today in some places but in Australia it is not until September. I was going to enter some of the dad card challenges but found it too hard now my Dad isn't here anymore, but than I thought I'd make one with things about him on it.
Ok. I will now tell you about my card. I have used Black and White stripe paper because his favourite AFL football team is Collingwood Magpies and they wear the striped black and white Jersey. THe diamonds in the embossing and the black diamonds which are overlapped are to represent chainwire fencing, this is the wire with the interlocking diamonds you see on tennis courts and security fencing. Dad did fencing for trade. I have added yellow as my colour through lightly printed daffodils. Daffodils always remind me of my Dad, I remember when I was young him telling me they were his favourite flowers because they his mum loved them. They now remind me of him in another way as Dad lost his battle with cancer last year on August 22nd which was Daffodil Day. Daffodil Day is for cancer, you can buy daffodil merchandise and daffodils throughout the month of August to raise much needed funds.

Lastly my stamped message Always on my mind - forever in my heart are just the perfect words to share with my Dad.
