Happy Aussie Father's Day!

Today it's Father's Day in Australia. After having had Mother's Day in March (UK for my mother-in-law) and May (Holland for my mum and myself), followed by Father's Day in June (Holland for my dad) this is the last for 2010. Not sure if I can ever get used to having four rather than two occasions a year...

You would think being in the Southern Hemisphere, that we would be having nice weather. In fact the last three months have been extremely wet and cold (extremely only applied for wet, as I can't really call 15 degrees Celsius cold). Last night we also had a bad storm, which kept both David and I up for most of the night.

Despite all that the kids couldn't wait to give David his presents. We bought him new crocs and a casual shirt. I also made him three picture frames with profile images of the children. It's nice to see their how they are and aren't alike.


Of course I made him a card too:


Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper | Patterned Paper: Belle Blvd (Man of the House) | Die Cuts: Papertrey Ink (Mat Stack 1 + Fillable Frames 4) | Clear Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Fillable Frames 4) | Twine (B*Inspired) | Buttons | Border Punch: EK Success | Ink: Stampin'Up (Chocolate Chip)

Thank you for the lovely comments and emails I've been receiving lately. It's great to see who lurks and visits my blog frequently. Enjoy your Sunday!
