Fairy Fun Friday Challenge#24

How can it be Friday again already!! It was only a couple of days ago surely! Where DOES the time go!
If you find it, can you tell it to come back please.
Well, this week at Fairy Fun Fridays, the theme is....... 'FOR DADS'.

For my sample, I played around with 'Lenny', the loveable lion.
( He's available at the Prairie Fairy Store, HERE).
I printed Lenny in two sizes so I could get a Lenny Jnr.
Coloured with Copics as usual and mounted on plain card. I can't remember the name of the DP, sorry.
The alphabet discs are from a boxed set by Papermania. I've had 'em YEARS! (There's loads in the box).
The 'string' is taken from a piece of Hessian sacking I picked up at the local craft shop. I just keep pulling threads out as I need 'em.
I distressed the edges with my very technical distressing tool......... the edge of my ruler.

Now, you kind and wonderful bloggers, hop on over to Fairy Fun Fridays and join in the fun! There's always a fantastic prize on offer and you've gotta be in it, to win it. Plus. you'll really want to see what the other girls have created for you!
Well, It's late and I have to be up early to get to the hospital for my next dose of radiotherapy.
(This post is scheduled, so I hope it doesn't let me down). Only three more after tomorrow's, (today's by the time you read this).  I'll be so glad not to have to traipse there every morning.
Have a fabulous weekend and come back soon!

Superb card Viv, and a clever way of using a single image (I will have to remember that). and coloured to perfection as usual.

Not long to go now Viv. but dont get all excited and do too much.

It's Adorable Viv, hope your treatment went okay, you will be glad of the rest over the weekend, I also hope you have a nice one. Love your card, especially the lovely clean lines and Junior too.

This a perfect card for a dad. I may follow this a little. My hubby's name is Lionel and his friends all called him lion when he was young. So I may sort of follow your card but add 4 little ones..They are grown so I'll need to change the wording a bit...
Thanks for a great idea..
God be with you through your journey...

hugs and prayers and aloha,
