Daddy Dearest

Hi all,

After a couple of good days we are now well and truly back to dreadful weather territory. It's just so depressing and  everything is wet and I have to wear my rain suit on my bike and that's all plasticky and sweaty and.....well, you get the picture, I'm not too thrilled about this weather type!

Let's move on to my card today, as that's a lot more cheerful this week. This week, our theme for the Delightful Challenge is "For Dad". As Father's Day is coming up very soon in the Netherlands, this was a perfect opportunity to make a card for the occasion. I'm not quite sure yet whether it's not too cutesy for my dad, but I do love this fish and background digi combo, they look great together!
