Dad's Day off

Happy Friday morning friends,

Progressive Freebie Challenge!
The end of another month is looming and I need to get some challenges done. Today I have a card made using an image from the May progressive challenge set from Deedee's Digis

This is a real fun way of getting some gorgeous new images and the set for this month is called Dad's day off. Perfect for a Father's day card, birthday or just because. I needed  to make a retirement card, and kept it fairly simple with no 'fussy bits' for someone retiring soon.

The paper I used was a freebie from Lisa of Decosse's Dynamite Doodles, who is so generous with giving free papers from time to time. She also runs a progressive Christmas challenge, so worth paying her a visit.

I matted the patterned paper onto brown cardstock.

The image is a precoloured one from the set (quick and easy) and the 'retirement' sentiment is also from the set.

The sentiment was computer generated and cut out with a Nellie Snellen label die and attached with 2 metal button brads.

This was the set for May. It also includes precoloured images which can be a great help when in a hurry and if you would like to join, then go and see all the details on Deedee's blog

I will enter my card in the following challenges:
C.R.A.F.T challenge #313...Father's day/male
Crimbo Crackers #81...Anything goes
The Crafter's Café #118...One for the boys
Double Click challenge...Father's day or man
Mod Squad challenge...Masculine
Stampavie and more #238...Boys
 Word Art Wednesday #185...Anything goes
Wonderful Wednesday...Anything goes
Simon Says Stamp challenge...Anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown #246...Anything goes
Love to Scrap #54...Anything goes
The Pink Elephant challenge #300...Anything goes

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and get to do something that you really enjoy. Take care and see you soon.

Love Ursula

Such a cute image with a wonderful lay-out. Thanks a lot for blessing us with your entry this week at Word Art Wednesday. Make sure to stop by and join us again in another Challenge starting tomorrow. Leaving you with God's Word in Colossians 3:23-24 which says, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving." Have a blessed day!
