Too much time

Hello crafty friends!!! How are you all, I hope you have had a great weekend even though the weather wasn’t that good (come on summer!!!!)I managed to get a couple of cards done one I will show you when I know it has been received but this card for today is one I have made for my Father in Law for father’s day. There is a story behind the card my mom in law says he is driving her mad because he has way too much time on his hands since he retired and needs to get a hobby as he just pither’s and potters, he is always on his computer messing with photo’s and music or getting under her feet.

So after a ponder as to what to do I decided to go with this
I know my MiL will think it’s funny and I hope my FiL will too we shall see lol

The papers are from nitwits they were freebies with a magazine and have been inked with blue shades of DI (the new shads are gorgeous but the lagoon one I think is quite similar to broken china)

The image is of course a Mo Manning one called computer guy and I have coloured him with prisma pencils. Now the image looks like it should be a baldy or something but my FiL has the hedge if you know what I mean so I had to put one in for him but I think I did OK.
I did the sentiment on my computer and then just added 3 buttons to the one side

I made the insert using the same papers and added the image but didn’t put a verse inside just happy father’s day.
So there you have my card for today hope you like it and I will see you very soon and leave you with some challenges I would like to enter
